As one of the many C.O.P.D. Patients here, does anyone know of a medication that will reduce the sheer quantity of Mucus I produce daily. I take the usual "Mucodyn" 375mg Capsules , four a day to help loosen this stuff, but its the AMOUNT I produce that rather worries me. Out of curiosity I keep an average size MUG - me( "Mucus Mug ) ! and spewed up this stuff for a week into it - by Friday I had practically FILLED IT ! - surely this can't be right ? and, what does it profit the Lungs to make such huge quantities ?, -,, the first half hour in the morning is taken up with caughing and spluttering with clearing the lungs that have accumilated all this gunge overnight, and of course when I have an infection, according to the "Bronko Test" it goes yellow, I take "Ciprofloxacin " and "Prednisolne" to get rid of it, fine, But , I NEVER had these problems when I smoked, (moderate smoker ), OR had breathing problems come to think of it, they only started WHEN I GAVE UP !!! - and when trying tell my smoking pals to do the same for the good of their health, they take one look at me and say "- Look at the state your in , you must be joking ", !, I'me not a good advert for cessation It seems - Oh dear ! , lots of endless thanks folks.
