one should never self-prescribe medications. pharmaceutical drugs have numerous indications and contraindications.

it is best to seek the advice of a licensed physician.

there is no one here that will offer you a differing opinion as it is a standard medical protocol.

i am sorry that your wife may be getting bronchitis. it may help her to have a humidifier/vaporizer in the room with tea tree oils in the water. you may consider supplementing with immune boosting vitamins and minerals - or simply vitamin c.
