Questions to Ask Your Doctor about Bronchitis

Making notes before your visit, as well as taking along a trusted family member or friend, can help you through the first appointment with your doctor.

  • Am I contagious? For how long?
  • Do I need to get a chest X-ray? (Most of the time, the answer is "No.")
  • Should I be concerned about having a fever?
  • Should I take over-the-counter cough and cold product?
  • What are the side-effects of the medications?
  • When will I be able to resume my normal activities?
