I have not seen any information (from credible sources) that oxysilver is even a proven medication when taken as directed, let alone taken in a nebulizer.

Can you tell us where you saw this recommendation, and have you talked with your doctor about this as a treatment option?

Please talk with your doctor before adding any supplements or OTC (over-the-counter) medications to your current regimen, as harmful drug interactions can occur. Again, I have not found any sources saying 5 mcg of silver to show any medical benefits, but am curious where you found that it might.
