Hello! My father has a chronic bronchitis but he still smokes. His doctor prescribed some medicines (bronchodilators) to treat his condition. Although this medicine helps him to breathe better he doesn’t take it as his doctor prescribed. He is coughing almost every day and I am afraid that his overall condition is getting worse.
