Papaya nectar is supposed to be a help. I use the new cough syrups for phlegm and they help.

There are also mucous relief tablets at the pharmacy. I use Papya nectar 2 cans a day and it does help.

I drink papaya nectar and use the suction machine. The cough assist contraption pulls mucus out of my lungs, so that helps to control when it shows up.

increase water intake as much as possible as this helps to keep secretions thin. and what the others have mentioned- thats all good stuff too. do you have a suction machine yet?

I have never heard of papaya nectar. Where do you get it? Grocery store?

When ever my hubby gets the yucky sound in his chest I immediately act by putting a grounded musinex into his tube. The ALS center said that I should not do this....but it is the only thing that has worked for us.....so I will continue. The key for my hubby is to act immediately and give him the musinex...just our experience. Good luck...it is always scary.
