A friend gave me the name of 'Mucodyne' syrup and my GP who is always glad to hear of something new (as long as it's legal) wrote out a prescription for it. My mucus has been so thick in the morning first thing, and when walking by the sea with the dog. I took it for the first time yesterday and it has thinned the phlegm out amazingly.
I also strained my ribcage with coughing tis mucus, making me afraid to cough, so GP gave me 'Voltarol'suppositories (50mg) as opposed to capsules and syrup for easier and quicker effecvt. Last night I had the best sleep in months. Nine uninterrupted hours. My partner was pleased about that too because so did he! I am not a raving medicine freak but thought I would pay for my keep this way and hopefully help somebody.
My good wishes to Krishan who took time on his big day to send me site help.
