Can anyone you takes the above answer a couple of questions if possible.
My husband was recently diagnosed with Asthma/fixed airway obstruction
(which we assume means COPD). He has been suffering from SOB and cough foir a few months and was admitted to A and E twice with suspected COPD after a lifetime smoking (he gave up 8 years ago). He is on Symbicort,salbutamol and Spiriva.
The hospital clinic doctor prescribed Carbocisteine to help bring up the mucus which he was finding hard to do. After a couple of days he found that he was blowing his nose a lot ang getting rid of a lot of mucus. He has since caught a cold from me so maybe that was the start of it. He now is hardly coughing and breathing is much better. My questions are does mucodyne work just on bringing up mucus when you cough or also the nose. I would have expected his symptoms to get worse if he has a cold. Any experiences most welcome.
