HI
Well come to HCM
You can drink plenty of water, hot drinks, soup, these would reduce the viscosity of sputum, if this is difficult to expectorant then you can use Bromhexine tab, three times in day, this medicine could cause tremor in arms so care need to be taken, better to discuss with your physician prior to taking this medicine may need some clinical examination, take care.
