A productive, chesty cough, in which phlegm is coughed up, should be treated with an expectorant cough mixture to help loosen the phlegm and make it easier to cough up from the airways. Expectorants contain ingredients such as guaifenesin, ipecachuana or ammonium citrate. Ask your pharmacist for more advice.
Because you are a COPD patient you are more prone to lung infections. If your cough lasts for more than a few days, or gets worse, you should see your doctor. You may require antibiotics or additional medication for your COPD.
