I'm in my 19th week of triple tx for 48 weeks, now all of a sudden I have this persistent cough! It keeps my husband and I wake, once I start coughing I can't stop. Is this ANOTHER side effect. I did take some cough drops but they didn't help much, plus they burned the He** out of my mouth. Anybody have any suggestions?
I also had an annoying cough while on tx. There were a couple of weeks when it was so persistant, I couldn't swim ' cause I was coughing under water. I hope it lets up, as it did for me. After that it was there but not so bad.
I'm about 18 weeks post treatment and it seems like my body is still purging all the residual congestion. Suck on some ginger candies, it helps the stomach and the cough too.
