Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 3 months ago

If you are not having fever or greenish sputum or phlegm then its pretty much alright ,should be improving over next couple of weeks . Meanwhile you should take steam drink adequate amounts of water , take Robitussin syrup thats available OTC . I would not recommend you anything too aggressive for this for now as its pretty much normal for cough to take this long following a bout of bronchitis

Hope it answers your query.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
