I have been on omeprazole now for several months. Three months ago, I developed a cough that won't seem to go away. I am not weaning off the medication, but my bronchial tubes still feel inflamed and its scarey.
Started Gilenya April 2014. Cough began May 2014. Developed coughing induced asthma, diagnosed January 2015. Stopped Gilenya June 2016. It's December 2016 and I still have this cough and it's really severe.
Hi. Just want some resolution and advice. The linzess 145 mcg works great but if I poop later that day the movement is harder to pass so I started to take the miralax again to hopefully keep the stools soft in the evening. No problems at all in the morning just the evening if I have to poop again.
