Hello from JustAnswer.

Most people that miss a single dose of prescribed nebulizer treatments do not notice an increase in mucus, However,it is possible that missing a single dose of a nebulizer may be sufficient for the patient to develop some shortness of breath related to spasm of the airways. If the person develops shortness of breath in this situation, then it would be appropriate to take the missed dose of the nebulizer as soon as possible once the shortness of breath leads to recollection that a dose was missed.

If I can provide any clarification, please let me know.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
