Should i take my nebulizer please help?
i am asthmatic and i recently got a nebulizer to help since the inhaler gave me headaches. it says to take every 4-6 hours as needed as i used it when i had an attack. well i been sick for almost 5 weeks now been to my docs office and to urgent care and i been on 2 antibiotics and codeine cough med and i am still sick with cough that is dry,chesty at times,hoarse,rattling. both places knew that i have a nebulizer cause they r part of same network as lung doc so it is on the puter screen when my log into my chart. non of them told me to at all to use the nebulizer, but friday when talking to someone else they said that i should be using my nebulizer every 4 hours until i get i get better, but i do not want to take it for this illness since the medical people did not tell me to take it. i know the instructions say to take it every 4-6 hours as needed but i thought that was just for asthma probs. i can try it and see if it works to help me. my one good friend i videod my cough for him to hear and he said there was some rattling in my cough.
so should i try the nebulizer and see if it helps or what?
