  • I have a cough that strangles me. Had this once before as a side effect to a drug. I just started a higher dose of bupropion. Could this be the problem or any of the other drugs I take?

The above symptoms started about 2 days ago and seem to subside when I relax or immediately after sleep, but return after I wake. I am working in Liberia at present and need to know if it could have any relevance to Ebola
    I had a bad headache about 2 weeks ago, but nothing since. I have had NO nausea or diarrhea or muscle pain or any other symptoms that I am aware are associated to Ebola
