Ask her for help to manage quitting. I quit after almost 40 years, used the patch. I used it for almost a year. I just kept cutting the patch in half, then fourths, eights, and so on......I still miss them at times, but have not had a bad cold since quitting. Best of luck.
After sugery my cough continue but it wasn't dry anymore, I know had drainage. I've been coughing now for about 5-6 weeks. When I cough now, it gets very bad that I can't breath. I went to see both my primary doctor and the surgeon for my lapband and they both just gave me coughing medicine w/codine, but that isn't working. I don't cough anymore like I used to, every 5-10 minutes, but when I cough now it's sounds like I have a lot of mucous, that I can't bring up and spit out.
Since we are talking about coughing. I had a few questions of my own. I have had issues coughing for the past 4-5 years. I caught constantly. Sometimes it makes my headache worse but sometimes I don't have a headache so it doesn't bother me. I do have sinus disease as per my MRI. So that explains the post nasal drip. I always have problems coughing whenever I am near or around water. For example I cough so much in the shower that sometimes it will make me throw up or gag.
I work from 5pm to 2am so it is hard I tryed it at 9am and 9pm but then I was at work so now im tryin it at 2pm and 2am but I still have to go to work and they are not being very good about it when I have to leave because of the nausea. Human resources keeps saying maybe I should just go out on a medical. Im starting to think I should.
My tiny four pound Maltese/Poodle cross has been coughing and I was wondering if someone has any ideas. He is about 8 1/2 and has had issues with his behavoir. He won't let us have him groomed without him trying to bite us or get his nails trimmed, so every four months or so we have to have him knocked out to have this done. I wasn't sure if this was some of his problem from the stuff they give him or what, but he does it alot especially at night.

I have spent many a night on the lounge this winter because I have been coughing for hours! The only thing I have had any luck with is to suck on a piece of dark chocolate. I don't know why but it pulls the tickle from my throat. If I have congestion dripping down my throat, the piece of chocolate seems to pull it together into a ball (ew!) so it stops causing the cough. Sometimes it takes two or three pieces sucked slowly but it has worked for me.
I am 20 years old and i always been a healthy person. But recently i been coughing and vomiting and even having really bad headaches. I cant eat and im constantly drinking water.

When i sleep i will just out of the blue start coughing and i can not stop it. My coughing last for about 3 to 5 minutes and then i lose my breathe.
Fri I used the rest of the Prescription and the Biaxin. I have about a weeks worth left of the Advair and at least 3 weeks worth left of the Sigulair. I know its only been a week, but I used all of 2 out of 4 of the things they gave me with no improvements so I guess Ill wait another 3 weeks or so to see any inprovements. The PFT test I kept having a bad start they said.
My girlfriend has 3 dogs, 1 of which is a female blue heeler (Tyler) about 4-5 years old. Tyler started developing a cough in mid-August, 2013. She has been coughing for the past 6 months. The 2 other dogs are in perfect health and have not developed a cough. I have outlined below the steps that have occurred during the past 6 months. - Month 1 - Normal coughing with a foamy white substance coming up after cough. She eats grass. She was prescribed antibiotics and small strength of steroids.

My daughter is 9 and has been coughing for over 12 weeks. Probably began with a cold--she was coughing more than once a minute all day long for a week (I timed her). No other symptoms. Her asthma action plan (pulmicort and albuterol nebs) did nothing. Ped pulmo saw us--she had normal pfts...he said it was viral. When it didn't get any better, he prescribed 14 days biaxin and 20mg prilosec in the a.m. That weekend, her cough went from constant to occasional, but never went away.
As you have had the persistent cough now for 3 weeks or so, I suggest you make an appointment to see your doctor to examine your throat and lungs and do a lung function test. If the doctor feels your cough is as a result of a bacterial infection, he will prescribe an antibiotic for you. Having a cough is the body's natural way of trying to get rid of an irritant, whether this is a virus or a bacterial, dust particles, irritation by smoke and fumes etc.
, Apr 04, 2008 02:16AM Tags: cough I have been sick for almost 4 months. It started out with the worst sore throat of my life..horrible pain, pus covered swollen throat. swollen glands and a feeling that my airway was in a spasm. The cough also started then. Coughing fits that last for min. tears rolling down my face gagging and coughing to the point of vomitting. The sore throat went away after 2 weeks but the cough is still here. I have wheezing that is not present all the time.
I've had this dry cough for about 4 months. It started with bronchitis. I had it for 3 weeks and every week I'd go back to the doctor and they'd put me on different antibiotics or steriods. On my 4th trip to the doctors office they said I had pneumonia. So i did steroids again and more antibiotics and an inhaler. Two weeks later I still had the cough and they told me bronchial spazms and yet again more steroids.
It is not uncommon to have a prolonged airway hypersensitivity following an upper respiratory tract infection. This may also cause you to wake up during the night or early morning coughing. Another possible cause of this type of response is that the sinuses have become involved due to your infection. Inflammation and/or infection of the sinuses can cause the same type of coughing response. Since this has been going on so long and not responding, it is a good idea to speak with your doctor.
hi thanks for your reply i've been on these for about 3 weeks now. i'm still really surprised at the diagnosis of asthma because i don't weeze at all and my air ways feel clear most of the time. i have a rescue inhaler (ventolin) . i never heard of vcd but it really does sound like a possibility to further investigate.
Check into side effects of various meds you are and have been on. Dont settle for the list they give you with your prescription. Go online and research. Also, try another doctor if this one is not able to find anything. Also if breathing issues and chest pain, it wouldnt hurt to see a cardiologist.
Hi, I have been coughing very badly for over a month now. I also have asthma, and i've been to see 4 different doctors. At first i was given steroids (prednisone) for the coughing and it didn't help at all. 3 weeks ago i did a chest x-ray and it was clear. The doctor gave me an antibiotic (roxo) 2 weeks ago and it didn't help so i went back to him. A week ago i did another chest x-ray and was told i have pneumonia.
