Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 weeks 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 (4 months ago):
chronic cough that happens every day no physical reason had all sorts of test they could find nothing wrong to cause the cough
From this study (11 months ago):
I have just stopped taking the Lisinopril today and I'm not sure how long it would take to get out of my system. I see my doctor tomorrow. I have read that both Prozac and Wellbutrin can cause coughing and my cough started at the same time I started prozac... I have emailed my psychiatrist for his opinion. I'm feeling great emotionally but the cough is really annoying and as I'm a voice teacher it is interfering in my work and overall comfort.
