From this study (1 year ago):
While I had the flu I began using guaifenesin and Sudafed to try to relieve the symptoms of sinus discharge, post-nasal drip and phlegm, and cough. I have mostly recovered but still cough a lot due to excessive sinus drainage and phlegm in my lungs.
From this study (2 years ago):
just switched recently from omeprazole which was not working great. I had a cough at the time also. At the same time Dr doubled simvastatin from 10 to 20 mg.
From this study (6 years ago):
When speaking, my speech often is interupted with a feeling like i'm about to cough. I cannot exert myself at all as this results in significant feeling of fatigue.
