How long will it take to get rid of acute bronchitis?

I was prescribed Augmentin 3 times daily for 10 days for acute bronchitis. I am also using an steroid inhaler. I have been taking it for three and a half days now. I am still coughing up a lot of mucus and am having a lot of wheezing/rattling going on in my chest. I feel I am better than I was a day or two ago, but how long should it take get rid of this sickness? What are some signs that I am getting better??

You can add azithromycin 500 mg daily to your antbiotic regimen and can take formoterol budesonide combination....

Hopefully your cough will get cleared up...
