Hot Toddy for Bronchitis with Asthma
I happen to come across your site becasue I was searching for home remedies for what is currently ailing me. I usualy come down with a bout of bronchitis each year this time (must be a sudden change in weather) and I also have asthma which flairs when I get sick. I did go the doctor and was prescribed 1,000 mg per day of Augmentin for 10 days and 20 mg of Prednisone a day for 5 days. I took both for 5 days and while my ears and throat are 100% better and I am getting alot of "glue" out of my nose my chest is still so congested. I can't seem to move much of anything enough to bring it up. I called the Dr. and he took me off the Augmentin and put me on Doxycycline, I just started taking that today I could deal with the congestion as I know it takes a while to go away but would like to be able to cough without such difficulty and my asthma is constantly being triggered because I am coughing so much. Part of my cough I believe is also due to a small does of Lisinopril that I take each day for my slight high blood pressure. A dry cough is the main side affect for that medication and I of course have that dry tickle in my throat all the time and then get sick with the bronchitis and here I am feeling like I am taking medicine and it's not helping. I read your receipe for the Hot Toddy and I am seriously thinking of giving it a try this evening. Can you offer me any other suggestions to help my asthma (I currently have a resuce inhaler that I can use when my asthma acts up) but I don't like having to go for that all the time.
Thank you for listening and hope to here from you :)
