Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
have had dry tickle cough for years. Increasing. Have had tests for sinus, throat problems, acid reflux, ulcer, colonoscopy, ultra sound, sleep test, cat scan, nothing wrong with all these has been found. Cough drops stop it for a while.
BoredRN on Apr, 21, 2014:
It could be an allergy related asthma cough. Ask your Dr to try you on a low dose steroid inhaler such as seretide (fluticasone + salmeterol). This will relieve the irritation that is causing the cough and may give long term relief.
Over the counter medications with codeine (ibuprofen + codeine or acetaminophen + codeine)are great at stopping dry coughs but it is only a temporary fix and is useful to get through those times that you can't afford to cough. It works but should not be used all the time as codeine makes you constipated and can be addictive over the long term.
