    Hydration, H2o plenty of it, then I use HTS and mucomyst. This works for me.

    Good luck!

    Sometimes coughing up nothing isn't good.....they sound like mucous plugs. I get them, especially in my left lung, I can feel exactly where they are as they create a dull, achy type of pain... You need to hydrate yourself very well, also, make sure you are doing your CPT, HTS, pulmozyme....anything to liquify that stuff so that you can cough it up. It's better out than in, trust me!

    yea my drs have me on 3 very powerful antibiotics, hypertonic saline, pulmazyme, albuterol my vest, they even brought in my hospital room a exercise bike and told me to walk, i am still coughing up the bare minimum. the amount is less then half the size of a dime, and it hasn't increased.

    Have you layed upside down? I know it sounds crazy but I have to do that on my couch and the mucus just drains out. Very gross but sometimes it helps..but if you aren't bringing up anything at more..it sounds like it's really stuck in there..esp. with the Vest (I use it too) and all the other treatments you mentioned..have the drs. suggested a bronchoscopy to clean out your lungs?
