Pulmonologist 's  Response
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
You are not receiving appropriate treatment for bronchitis. Inhaled treatment in best for bronchitis.
Since you are not receiving inhaled treatment you are not improving completely.
So consult pulmonologist and start inhaled bronchodilators (formoterol or salmeterol) and inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) (budesonide or fluticasone).
Don't worry, you will be alright with all these in 2 weeks.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
