How do you clear the stuff out of your chest w/o using an inhaler?
I have had to use my albuterol more and more the last couple of days just to clear the congestion in my chest. Mostly it is in the morning, but I continues throughout the day.
It's not like an attack, but it becomes thicker until I can't stand it any more and it is hard to take a good breath.
I will say that I know it is worse when I'm anxious, I just don't understand how anxiety can produce mucus.
So I was wondering, should I just use the xopenex in my nebulizer a couple of times a day again until this clears up or is there some other way of reducing this stuff.
I was wondering if short term use of decongestants might help. Expectorants don't work for this stuff, they just make my lungs itch.
