Brief Answer:
Use acetylcysteine orally

Detailed Answer:

Hi


As you explain the history for the phlegm you can use acetylcysteine in tablets twice orally for some days but the phlegm might be from cardiac problems too.

Usually phlegm is not related to pulmonary embolism however try the above and monitor the situation.

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