Excessive phlegm

Hi, Can you please advise me for phlegm, I have been suffering from excessive phlegm and bad cough, it gets worse in the night after I go to sleep. Phelgm gets stuck in my throat and having difficulty breathing. The phlegm is not so dark, it is in whitish color. I have seen my Doctor, he prescribed me Amoxicillon 500 mg, benefryl cough syrup. but look like it is not helping.

Please advise.  Regards  Jag

What you need is a natural mucolytic (mucus thinner). I take 1000 mg of vitamin B5, which is also an anti-inflammatory. I have since added mullein extract and MSM which are also anti-inflammatory. Unfortunately many of the medications prescribed for COPD are extremely drying and turn your lungs to glue. (What your doctor doesn't tell you, or doesn't know.)

P.S. It may be that the medication you are taking is causing the excessive phlegm and coughing. With me it was a side effect of Advair.
