Common Questions and Answers about Coughing phlegm singulair

coughing

I thought I was problem-free from then on, but recently (around March 20, 2008), I've had trouble with excessive coughing and extremely adhesive yellowish-green phlegm for almost 2 weeks. Then for the next seven days, I took an antibiotic and Endorsteine(?) Zertin (through a friend's recommendation) which was medication for acute bronchitis though I was only 75% sure that my condition was even bronchitis.
Chronic coughing and choking to the point of throwing up.
Chronic coughing and choking to the point of throwing up.
could all these things be linked, could i have a hyper allergic reaction to something which triggers of the coughing, hte violent coughing inturn has weakend the pshinter muscle in my chest and produced the hernia? could the acid reflux or the gas given off by the extra acid be now triggering the violent coughing fits? and inturn then damaging my vocal cords?.
i had a similar problem as an adult - massive amounts of mucus/phlegm in the evenings - could not sleep until about 2am most nights - too busy coughing up stuff or waking up choking. Short answer for me was food allergies to wheat, gluten, soy. I would have a nice wheat based pasta dinner between 5 and 6pm and the mucous would start shortly after and last for up to 8 hours (dependent on volume of asllergen consumed).
I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it.
Coughing up green phlegm is, with rare exceptions, not something that occurs with asthma. When it occurs with hard cylindrical mucus plugs, it may be a sign of an allergic fungal disease that occurs commonly with asthma. But, what you describe is almost certainly a sign of serious lung infection, bronchitis or pneumonia. Most worrisome is the breathlessness from simply turning in bed that could be due to pneumonia or drastic worsening of your asthma due to infection.
I am seeing my pulmonologist and he has me on Singulair and Symbicort. I dont think it is working 100%, I still have bad days. I get pain in my back muscles sometimes. I have a cough with clear or white phlegm that developed about a week ago. I get pain in the middle of my chest, but it is not constant, it comes and goes infrequently. When I try to breathe in - I only feel I am getting so far and it feels like my upper chest is heavy.
im on my second course of doxycycline and my dr. put me on a nebulizer. I am not coughing up phlegm anymore, but still don't feel better. Still sometimes feel like i am suffocating at night and am easily short of breath and get chest pain and fatigue from very little activity. Still getting chest or abdominal rashes and chills. I wonder if we might have a fungal or viral infection. My dr. told me that if I don't get better he might have to do a CT scan or a sputum culture.
I have had a tightness in my chest and in my back along with a dry cough that doesnt go away. I am not producing phlegm with the cough,it is a dry cough. Sometimes I feel like I cant breathe deeply. When I laugh I feel out of breath and usually the coughing begins. I dont have any wheezing. Could this be asthma?
I have been suffering from excessive phlegm for nearly half a year now. I would have to cough and hock for nearly an 30 minutes after I ate. I felt like I did not want to eat any longer. I felt like I was chocking on phlegm that would never stop. I rarely got a nights rest and my body was exhausted and ached from coughing so hard and hocking up phelgm. Not to mention how embarrassing it was to eat in public.

About two weeks ago, I developed chronic postnasal drip that left me clearing my throat constantly and hoarse by the end of the day. I also had a runny nose with clear discharge. At night, I would wake up coughing. Also at night, one of the my nasal passages would become completely blocked and could not be cleared by blowing my nose. Once or twice I coughed up thick yellow phlegm. Today I woke up almost unable to speak.

Here it is end of August 2009 I am still coughing, although not uncontrollably. I'm on Symbicort 160, Singulair, and Zyrtec. I've been tested for allergies, and it's not dust-mites or food, and I have no pets. I do not cough at night, but during the day, when I have to talk more. I rarely feel SOB -- my airways just feel inflamed and "thick" until I've cleared them of phlegm. It's never a lot, and sometimes I have none.
she felt I should do another xray,then put me on SINGULAIR had to GO THROUGH ALOT W/ MY INS 2 get that. finished bottle did not refill,research singulair has aside affect of weight gain no one wants that as side affect)) took myself off the singulair.I know bad..who wants weight gain as a side affect? I started to take chrlor trimeton only at night its over the counter.I must let you know that I do not smoke (NEVER) I drink maybe 1 drink a month.my blood pressure is great.
My 4 year old son coughs constantly at night. It's a dry, hacking cough which does not bring up any phlegm. It doesn't sound "sick" at all--it's the type of cough I wouldn't even notice except that he does it so frequently. During the day, often when he laughs or cries, it turns into the same dry, hacking cough. Otherwise, I haven't noticed that he does much coughing during the day. Does this sound like asthma? He has never wheezed or had difficulty breathing.
I also use pulmicort, xopenax, singulair, nasonex, synthroid 100, paxil 10, and hydocortisone 25 mg for itching...within 7 days of being off the antibiotics/prednisone, I start coughing up pea size "balls" of yellow phlegm, and the wheezing feels feels like it is also in my upper breathing.
Sorry, wanted to add that I have been coughing up phlegm too. Sorry to be gross but I seem to have lots of "gunk" coming up when I cough. I've been on antibiotics as recently as 2 weeks ago. The color of the phlegm got better (was green, now is white) but it's still there.
My cough was fairly dry as well, although when I actually looked, I could see there were small amounts of quite viscous phlegm. I experienced coughing fits from time to time. Take care.
perhaps you need to get a chest xray and lung ct scan. coughing up phlegm is not always contributed to sinus problems. as far as doctors are concern, you have to become an aware patient-tell them you are not satisfied with their answers and don't be afraid to speak up. they don't know how serious this problem is to you unless you tell them point blank. there are a lot of tests they do but also a lot they don't do. have any them done a sputum culture to check for infection.

like thin tissue paper. The lungs respond quickly to phlegm. Phlegm is the body's inability to process certain foods, like sugar and dairy. I can write much more if you are interested. Scott.
Before that, I have always had some type of strange cough that I assumed was just a symptom of my Asthma, but after the antibiotics finally kicked the sickness, my cough has worsened and now I am coughing up phlegm [I don't believe it's colored as it was when I was ill, but maybe a little frothy and just icky and well... of thick consistency.] I've also had this chest pain for several months that I got sometime last year.
Keep in mind they were coughing for 10 months. The 3 year old severe coughing. So much it tooks hours every night for her to fall asleep. Her doctors thought she was developing asthma and were treating her with antibiotic and asthma drugs many times over during the ten month ordeal. Funny huh... all they needed was chlorine free water... what a lot of wasted drugs, money, time and agony for my children. Look it up in library medical books.
Now he has been pretty sick almost since November. It won't go away. He is on albuterol, singulair, and another liquid steroid at the moment. My question is that we all are sick here and everyone coughs. All this is not taking away his cough, but some amount of cough should be normal with a cold right? They said he has reactive airway disease, but how am I to know when the cough is not right? They sound the same to me.
Hi guys, your problems seeemlike mine, I had phlegm (mucus in throat) for 7 months after a sore throat. 3 weeks ago had nasal discharge and Dr. gave me a corticosteroid nasal spray works well but doesn't stop the pressure in head/eyes. The phlegm used to be clear until when the sinus problem started and it just keeps going bacl to my throat . Colour yellow/green. I alwasy have to cough on purpose to relieve the phlegm like 100 times a day.
When this happens, my mouth tastes metallic which made me think I was coughing up blood but I only cough up clear phlegm. I've been through the ringer of tests and treatments, I've had regular inhalers, steroid inhalers, I've been on singulair. I've had peak flow tests, I've had a camera down my throat to see what happens when I have an "episode" and I've been to a heart specialist. None of this has produced anything except for "nothing is wrong with you.
I am now desperate, I cough about 12 - 14 times a day that doesn't sound much but each session can last several minutes, it hurts my ribs and stomach, I am left with tears streaming, red in the face, I have had to step up the use and size of tena lady pads (as you can imagine - but that's another story). I have too leave meetings at work to have a coughing fit. I am totally exasperated and exhausted and at my wits end as to what to try next.
It started with a sore throat and general feeling of run down. I was coughing a lot and hacking up a lot of phlegm. I took some days off of work and returned as I was feeling up to it again. The cough did not go away, although it changed from a wet cough to a dry cough back to a wet cough. I was diagnosed with asthma as a child, I am now 24, and have had various breathing problems over the last few years (especially as I have moved into a colder climate).
