For awhile now, my throat has had a lot of mucus in it. My breath has been kinda bad lately and I know its from the mucus. Is there a way to get rid of it? I've tried saline sprays and it gets rid of it for a while.

Any suggestions?

Re: Mucus!!

Robitussin? I had a really bad chest cold several weeks ago, and tried all sorts of remedies, but really, only time helped. If your breathing is really bad, your PCP could prescribe something to help keep your airways open while coughing up that mucus. Look for an expectorant? That's what I finally did, though whether my symptoms improved due to the medicine or due to the passage of time isn't clear to me.
