Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Coughing is severe often to the point that things go black and there is a ringing in my ears. I have never passed out, though I often think I may. I have allergies and my coughing onset is usually due to aspiration of food drink or sinus drainage. Sometimes It begins with a sharp tickle in my larynx.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Taking amlodipine 5 mg and losartan 50 mg daily for hypertension .
