May I ask how long you were on the big 3 before a clear sputum and did you have a special routine in taking the drugs to minimize their effects?? Thanks.

Thu, Apr 11 9:08pm · Anyone going to 2019 NTM Physician/Patient Conference in Texas? in MAC & Bronchiectasis
Where is the conference location and dates, pls?
Thanks very much for for your response. I'm using a nebulizer and it is helpful, but seldom is there a productive cough to remove mucus. Am drinking a lot of water which seems to help. Am interested if others are having success with postural drainage? During an episode I can't breathe laying on my stomach or and can't sleep on my side, so there is a lot of mucus to somehow get rid of. As a result the episodes seem to drag out before I can fully recover. Have no fever this time, but have elevated breathing rates because of the mucus and as a result, a pulse in the 70s and 80s that is normally in the 60s. Recovery has been very slow.
What kind of alternative medicine did you use when you had symptoms. Are there alt meds that are effective??
