Is the cough producing mucus? If so, is it easily expelled, or tenacious. If tenacious, take 500 mg. of vitamin B5 daily. (I take 1000 mg.) No side effects.

I forgot to mention what B5 does. It is an anti-inflammatory and a mucus thinner. Vitamin C is also anti-inflammatory. Take about 500 mg. of that daily. Even if you don't have a mucus problem you should still take B5, but maybe a smaller dosage.
