I have mucus in chest & nose. The hot weather seem to make it worse - I have some yellow thinning capsules,
to take - Can antibiotics help to clear the mucus better. Our gardener has mucus - he takes one tablet a day,
He is half my age & can work all day - Is there any tests at a hospital - they can make, to ease my problem.
Ps - I have C.O.P.D. also

I have COPD and Asthma and had problems with mucus...antibiotics will help if there is an infection causing excess mucus production....get that checked out first.
I use a device that clears mucus effectively....drug free and simple to use.
A search online will reveal several devices that may be of some help.
Good luck

I use a device that is a hand held breathing device that is described as a lung exerciser. I have had if for a long time. I got it on line.
I have never smoked but worked for years in an office in an old building where many of my colleagues smoked. The device helps me if I get mucus in the upper respiratory tract.

It’s okay not to be okay.

I suffer from COPD and a lot of mucus mainly in my throat, my doctor just did an xray which found my heart a normal size, it seems that with COPD your lungs get bigger and heart can get smaller.

Have tried a nebulizer with hypertonic saline solution, am not sure that it did anything, the process is time consuming, the machine is very noisy, I wear noise cancelling head phones.... very useful.

Regarding these mucus clearing devices, I have seen them advertised and always thought they were just a gimmick, interesting that you found them so useful. The NHS web site does not mention them, a search online gives many different ones, the reviews vary enormously, so I am just undecided, I want to give a go...would try anything really.

Can any of you Buzzers please give me some more feedback on these devices? A particular make that you tried?
apparently some are for lung strengthening and some do that and mucus clearing too.
Thanks.
