Because most cases of bronchitis are caused by viral infections, antibiotics aren't effective. However, if you have a bacterial infection, an antibiotic will be effective. In some circumstances, your doctor may recommend other medications, including:
  • Cough medicine. If your cough keeps you from sleeping, you might try cough suppressants at bedtime.
  • Other medications. If you have allergies, asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), your doctor may recommend an inhaler and other medications to reduce inflammation and open narrowed passages in your lungs.
