Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I see through your query that you have several weeks with the white phlegm.

So, in my opinion the symptoms may be related to bronchitis.

I would recommend to continue using mucolitics such as Guaifenesin.

You can find it with the name Mucinex and is an over the counter medication.

I also recommend to start a cycle of antibiotics to treat a possible bacterial infection.

I recommend Augmentin 625 mg twice a day for five days.

It is a prescription medication, so you should consult your doctor before the treatment.

I also recommend to drink liquids and use a humidifier at home for relief.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
