Hi, Your mucous problem should be fine with the treatment which you are taking for NTM. Please take steam regularly. Add a mucolytic if you feel that problem is persisting. Please get your audiometry done as a base line and report to your doctor if you feel any change in your hearing status as you are taking amikacin for longer duration. Regards
