Dry hacking cough
I have had a dry hacking cough for almost a month. I have been treated with antibiotics and prescription cough syrup and was told that I have Acute Bronchitis. I have just finished another round of cough syrup and doxcycylin and I am still coughing. Help!

After a month I'd be concerned about pertussis, as well as pneumonia.  Ask for a chest xray.  and perhaps some inhaled steroids or even oral steroids.

If your Dr. wants to keep giving you more antibiotics then maybe you should get a second oppion before you end up in the hospital with pneumonia. That stuff is serious so you better get it checked out. Good luck, I hope I helped.

It is quite possible your cough is due to statins.  Back off Lipitor and related statins.  I am aware of several people tht did and the cough went away.
