Has anyone else noticed , that when you complete a Course of Steroids, , as in my case, apart from the breathing that greatly improves , but the production of mucus virtually dries up - marvellous ! ....BUT, after a couple of weeks AFTER the Steroid Course has been completed, the breathing difficulties start creeping back, AND the dam Mucus production " MACHINE " goes back into action with a vengeance, leaving me , as usual , every morning first thing " Clearing the tubes " as I call it , by having to stand leaning over a bowl coughing up large quantities of the dam stuff again , and as a consequence , leaving me gasping for breath , ... if someone could invent a Steroid WITHOUT SIDE EFFECTS " that greatly improve breathing AND stop this Mucus production - they would be a Millionaire over night . !!!
