Since how long it is there? Do you smoke? How is the rest of the day?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
The rest of the day is almost clear of mucas. I did smoke and have emphasema. Have not smoked for 35 years. At the early onset of the mucas it was very heavy after taking the GFSE it has been of a much reduced level. My thought is , if I can eliminate the mucas my overall condition will improve.

Thank you for the input.

The early morning sputum is characteristic of chronic bronchitis. Emphysema associated with chronic bronchitis is producing this symptom. This resource will help you in understanding the problem.

Though various treatments are used in chronic bronchitis there is usually periods of exacerbation . You can consult your pulmonologist for the best combination of medicine to keep you symptom free.

Hope this information will help you.
