I have been taking colomycim in a nebuliser for almost 2 years to try to reduce the number of infections. It works most of the time but still have to take top up ab's when i do get infection. I'm just getting over a very bad virus infection that seems to be doing the rounds of able bodied people. Put me in bed for 2 weeks, just pottering now getting some strength back.I have Bronchiectasis and occasionally Asthma. Don't worry everything helps, I've had this since I was three years old and am now 68. If you can go with the flow, do what you can, and sometimes what you think you can't, then you'll be okay, you're living with a chest complaint, not dying with it, that;s what I try to remember. x Good luck.
