Suggest treatment to cure chronic bronchitis

I have chronic bronchitis to the point that every morning I cough so hard I either vomit or bruise my ribs. I get the specialist parodox of being thrown to the ENT, Pulmanologist, Allergist, and back to my family physician. I need a prescription for Hycoden which seems to be the only thing that temporarily puts this problem on the back burner. I have found some inexpensive sites as my lack of insurance won't cover it,

Pulmonologist 's  Response
Hello
Thanks for your query.
To be frank if you really are suffering from chronic bronchitis it does not have any cure in the medical literature and all we, the pulmonologist, can do to control and reduce progression of your disease. For that you need to be put on inhalers but before that you need to undergo a spirometry to grade your disease and risk stratification of your disease. I will suggest you to keep yourself on regular treatment of a pulmonologist because he is the best doctor for your disease.
Thank you
Regards,
Dr Arnab Maji
