How can chronic bronchitis be treated?

Yes. I have a very bad case of bronchitis and today came down with a cold as well. Since I already am taking Escitalopram at night and Butalbital in the morning, what would be safe for me to take to relieve the symptoms I am now suffering with both the bronchitis and the cold. Thank you.
