Three weeks ago I developed pretty severe bronchitis. I was placed on a Z-pack and then a 7 day tapered dose of Prednisone (which I finished last Saturday). I was also using Mucinex and Ventolin HFA Inhaler every 4 hours.
I am feeling MUCH better but still have a slightly mucousy cough and some mild wheezing off and on - even though I have asthma - this mucousy cough/wheeze is VERY unusual for me.
Can anyone tell me how long it takes to completely clear up the cough/mucous. Should I be concerned or is this part of the process? I have not had bronchitis in 9 years so I cannot remember.
I have been sick since the beginning of December. You sound like you are coming around though, in another month it should be warmer and you might feel better. Since its been 9 years it might take a while to get your strength back. I would recommend good vitamins and hopefully you will do better. Good luck.
