i've been nebulizing 3 x per day and taking 2 oz of collidial silver internally, and 2 clearlung pills 3 x per day. i had to reduce the amount of lobelia to nebulize to 6 drops because the vinegar was too strong for me. wednesday night i coughed up a lot of mucus--more than usual. thursday night for the first time since this started 2 weeks ago, the coughing became less frequent (although more laborious). i'm happy that i'm finally getting some sleep. last night even less frequent. although the coughing fits take longer to produce and leave me sweaty and breathless. never have i ever coughed this much in my life and my ribs are sore. all that said, i do feel that things are definitely getting better. one concern i have at this time is that the clearlungs bottle says "uses: for fast temporary relief of lung congestion...". fast and temporary is not really what i'm looking for in a case like mine. i don't want any suppression of symptoms especially with a productive cough. do you think it is still ok to take? or do you think it is just a weird marketing statement that is irrelevant?
