I have kindly been given a cold over Christmas. My usual pf of 550 is down to around 320, however its difficult to measure accurately as it causes me to cough. My cough is dry but once I start I can't stop for ages and it leaves a strange taste in my mouth, however, after taking Ventolin, the phlegm is kind of released off my chest and the cough becomes chesty and productive. I do not normally wheeze but have found myself breathing quite musically especially after a coughing fit. I know medical advice cannot be given here, but I'd like suggestions as to what I am best to do. I currently take montelukast and flixotide 250, 1 puff at night but can increase this to 2 puffs morning and night which I have done for about a week now when the cold started. I am now taking Ventolin regularly through the day too, maybe 10 puffs over the course of a day (dont want to take too much) is there anything else I could or should be doing? Thanks in advance xxx
