@ashred Taking Mucinex or the generic might help get the fluid out of your lung. You might also want to see a physical therapist because they have ways to help expel mucous. I hope you feel better. I've had re-occurring issues with bronchitis that starts with allergies that create too much phlegm and it moves to an infection. Controlling allergies is my best defense. I have allergic asthma which doesn't help.
