I started laying down before I went for my dental cleanings and it always clears my lungs so I don’t cough while they’re working on me.
Do you use both albuterol and saline or just one or the other?

Thank you – I knew there wasn’t a cure but thought there might be something to put it into remission. I have been doing the albuterol in my nebulizer and will ask about the sodium. I’m on Azithromycin 3 days a week. I’m also doing the clear lung capsules. Seems to help me cough if there’s something to cough up.
I have a question for anyone – is there a treatment for bronchiectasis itself? My Mac and nocardia seem to be in remission but I’m getting short of breath and have a lot of buttery texture and color sputum. Am doing to try to see my doc this week. I was told at one point there wasn’t a treatment for bronchiectasis but the other bacteria that bothered it. Can anyone give me some info? Thanks. Marilyn
I’ve been using clearlungs for 3 months now and for me it definitely seems to be helping. It makes me cough up what mucus I have and it’s thinner. I take it first thing in the morning and in 2 to 3 hours I’ve coughed up quite a lot and not much coughing the rest of the day. I’ve stopped using my vest and nebulizer until my next scan. Also went off the meds as my eyes were really bothering me. They’ve been much better lately (I also have sjogrens). My Mac was still active when I started clearlungs. I have bronchiectasis, Mac, (nocardia in remission) and aspergillos & psudamonas in my esophagus. I’m 83 and was diagnosed in 03.I have been very blessed in that I’ve not been sick with any of this. The CDC doctor tells me my lungs have many Mac colonies.
I waited 3 months. This was in 2003. The doctor I saw was Dr. Huett and I think she’s still there. I was there for ten days – went back for 3 days 3 months later for follow up. They are fabulous and so thorough. I’m sure you’ll find it worth the wait.
We traveled and were transferred often. I was raised on a farm and gathered eggs from a henhouse. After retiring we lived part time in an area with lots of bats. The rest of the time was spent in buildings that had pigeons in the attics and heat/ac systems. This was before my diagnosis. And also a few years ago. I was diagnosed at National Jewish Research Center in 03. With avian Mac I obviously swept and things became air born. I was told that bronchiectasis can be genetic and I also have a CF gene.

I just got NAC and Clear Lung so just starting them. What do you take NAC with? I don’t do juice so wondering if a glass of water will do. I was on Arakayce for 5 days and totally lost my voice. Doctor took me off and I just found out I did not qualify for assistance so my monthly copay would have been $2000.00 a month after my insurance allowed $139,000.00 for the year! Don’t think I was meant to take it! I’m anxious to learn more about the lactoferrin…
