So sorry to hear that you have Covid, it’s certainly on the increase. I hope you get over it soon. I’ve looked on the NHS website for you and the recommended dose of carbocisteine 375mg is 2 x 3 daily, dropping down to 1 x 4 daily when feeling better. Perhaps next time you order ask him to check nhs dosage for your current state of health. Is there another dr or asthma/respiratory nurse that can help? Get well soon

Check the Carbo leaflet, you could try 2 AM, 2 PM and just one in the middle. You wouldn't run out quite so fast. Anyway, I hope you're on the road to recovery very soon. P
