Just discharged from the hospital for five days. I was unable to catch my breath. Put on lots of antibiotics, prednisone, and everything else. They say I need to cough up mucus and I am coughing nonstop but nothing coming up. This is new to me and I am scared. shawnee330. Any help please

When that happened to me I stayed away from sugar except for one cup coffee I the morning and drink lots of water witch I hate and 2 times a day I take the liquid generic mecinex for cough and congestion boy did it help so now I'm good and so it stays good a couple night a week I take the mucinex before because it seem to work better when you lie on your side but that's what helped me after I got out of the hospital and I also take AIRBOURNE great stuff help to keep your ammune stem up my doc said it was ok for me talk to u r doc but good luck but water helps a lot

Sugar is bad for COPD? Do you think that liquid generic mucinex is better than the tablets? Thanks in advance for you response.

Yes I was taking pills and they didn't help my doctor told me to take the liquid it works faster but my opinion it actually helped me and my husband
