When I saw the doctor he said my cough was coarse and had me use their nebulizer. After the treatment he listened and said I sounded better (even though I was styill coughing quite a bit). He said it seemed to just be my asthma so I reasked him if I had a cold or not even tho I had no sore throat and no sinus issues since I am immunosupressed and around many people that have the cold that is going around. He said well it is nothing bacterial. I am trying to understand that comment so do I have a virus? The treatment he told me was increase fluids, get rest, use mucinex DM and either my inhaler or nebulizer every 4-6 hours. If I am not sick why the mucinex DM and not another product by them?
