I talked to Mom's GP's nurse yesterday b/c couldn't get appt with doc. until 8/10 and Mom is having such a terrible time with her cough. I asked about getting a nebulizer for Mom, and she said she would run it by the doc. and give us a call. I had noted different medications which many of you kind warriors had recommended for use with it. When the nurse called my Mom, she said the doc. will order one, but she said Albuterol. I know that is used for asthma, and probably other lung difficulties, but it wasn't one that was mentioned in replies to my original post as being efficacious. I wondered if anyone has any thoughts on this?
I tried to talk her into going back to the pulmunologist, but she didn't want to because it is so far to drive and such a long wait, and she feels so bad right now. I just don't know how much I trust her GP... so wanted to check with people who have "been there, done that".
Thanks in advance for any replies.
