@shell4life – Prescription cough syrup can really ease the strain that bronchitis places on your upper body. My doctor prescribed me some with codeine in it.

The best acute bronchitis treatments depend on the cause of the condition. If a person has acute bronchitis that is caused by a virus, he may treat it at home with rest, liquids, a humidifier, and over-the-counter (OTC) medications. When home treatment proves inadequate, however, medical professionals may prescribe medications called beta-2 antagonists to help open up tight, irritated airways. Bronchitis caused by bacteria, however, is often best treated with antibiotics.

Most people who are diagnosed with acute bronchitis do not need antibiotics to treat it, but there are some cases in which they are beneficial.

Viewer Comments: Bronchitis - Length Symptoms Lasted. Pictures of I have been prescribed codeine and Tessalon Perles, but these have not worked for me.

It started as a dry cough and I was given cough medication with codeine. A week later it was worse. I couldn't sleep or stop coughing (no fever ). I was out of town and went to urgent care. They told me the virus had turned into Bronchitis and gave me Zithromax "Z-pack", an inhaler and more cough medication. I woke up the next morning, coughed and my airway was compley blocked. This had never happened to me (I'm not a smoker and I don't have asthma). I was scared, so I called the front desk, but could not get a word out.
