How do you treat frequent bronchitis?
Bronchitis and upper respiratory infections is something that I end up getting frequently, especially this time of year. Some of my doctors treat it different ways. For me, even though it is usually viral, it has a hard time just “running its course” It usually stays in my system for awhile without the help of medications to get things moving along.
Usually I get about 5 episodes of bronchitis a year, especially when I was teaching in a public school setting. To treat this, I use inhalers (xopenex) bipap as needed, oxygen usually turned up higer , sometimes an anti-viral medication, and sometimes if it doesn’t improve after 4 days they give an antibiotic, also robitussin with codeine.
How often do you get bronchitis? How is it treated for you?
