Pulmonologist 's  Response
The medicines that have been started are fine.
The dosage of wysolone is very low as i feel ideally to start with the dosage should have been atleast 20 mg however as azoran has been added the dosage may suffice.
The dosages of different medicines again depends on the type of abnormality your Ct scan shows.
But as you have asked the safe dosages for wysolone can be from 5-60mg daily. Steroids do cause a variable side effects on a long term basis and hence a review at frequent intervals is needed.
Azoran can be stepped up to 100 mg daily but hepatic abnormalities should be kept in check
Mucinac is 600 three times and a safe and recommended dose
