    (Asked by a 80 year old woman who has Chronic Chest Infection, and takes Warfarin Sodium)
    I have been on Warfarin for 3 years because of atrial fibrillation, and coincidentally or not, since then I have had a chronic chest infection which never clears. I have had scores of antibiotics which have not helped at all. When I cough I sound like I smoke 60 cigarettes daily, I have never smoked in my life. I sound like someone who has cystic fibrosis or COPD. My doctors never seem concerned that this has gone on so long, they just tell me I need to go on more holidays in the sunshine! It's getting me and my family down, and I don't know what to do.
