Cough, Cough... (Recommendations Wanted)

Does anyone have any good recommendations on tips and tricks to sleep through a cough? I'm using the stuff the Dr gave me vs getting something like Robitussin or Nyquil - but it is not doing its job. At all.

Help.

Desperately want a good night's sleep (or any sleep for that matter.)

Unfortunately, none of that stuff worked for me either. :( But I did discover that I slept better if I was sitting in a recliner or mostly upright - laying down would send me into endless coughing fits. Have you tried that?

Questions - is it a productive cough? Do you feel congested all the time, or just laying down? Do you feel short of breath? Does it feel like you need to cough stuff out of you and it just won't come up?

Or is the cough just irritating the crap out of you? :-D

All are quite valid reasons to want it to stop!

Sometimes, yes. Sometimes, no. It seems like it alternates between a dry and a wet cough. Generally, I don't feel congested at all. It's like this lump that sits at the base of my throat that won't go away. Though, lately, that lump has started to spread to my upper chest. It feels like I need to cough stuff out, but there's just nothing there, either because it's so fine a mist or there's just nothing there.

And yes, the cough is irritating the crap out of me and I do not want 6 weeks of this which is normal for me :P

I would check with a pharmacist or your doc, but there's always something like Mucinex, which thins out secretions (which might help you cough stuff out). *hug*

Been using Mucinex. Nothing anyone has given me or I've tried so far has been working. Stupid cough.
