The first thing that is very important is that you should try and use as much mist as you can to soften the phlegm so that it can be expelled. Warm mist is particularly helpful.Acetylcysteine is a medication that is also a mucolytic drug i.e. it breaks the mucous or phlegm in the lungs that will help.Acetylcysteine is a prescription drug FYI.Let me know if you have more questions.
