Bradster; this could very from person to person and you are saying your chest is still tight you want to take it until your chest clears up and is not bringing up stuff from your lungs many people could be 5 day minimum and make sure your taking it with a glass of water to help clear out your lungs good once it stops breaking up and is clear for a day or so then it is okay to stop it..remember plenty of water while on this medication..continue until anything coming up is clear and your not coughing... most about 5 to 7 days good luck hope that well help you some have a good day
