Diagnosed with severe COPD. NOT ON OXYGEN

For the last week or so my nose has been clear and I have not had any nosebleeds.
Why? My Dr. gave me a new antibiotic. For years I have been prescribed Amoxycillin 500 which never totally cleared my infections which is why I have had so many flare ups.
The new drug is Co-amoxiclav 500 and I have felt better these last few days than I have in months.
Might be worth you trying this.

When I find myself with a stopped up nose and can't breathe I get out my Neti-pot.
Best purchase I ever made. Great for sinus infections also. Hope you find relief soon.

I spend the first part of my morning blowing crap out of my nose and coughing it up. I'm on Nasocort and will use whatever otc med I need to use to keep it clear. I've heard people talk about a Netipot but have no clue what it is

Because I have high blood pressure, I take Coricidin. It's great for your nasal problems.
