thank you the Big X, much obliged! hope youre well!
Works great for a dry hacking cough.
If you have a productive cough Hycotuss expectorant is excellent.
(Contains hydrocodone though)
Mucinex (expectorant) is supposed to be good too and it's OTC.
I'm allergic to opiates...oh well, lol....the NP did tell me they have "a pearl" they could give me for bad riba throat, but I don't know what that is yet....
In my case, cough stops as soon as I start chewing gum.
Weird, but it works
10 minutes of gum chewing gives me 2-3 hours of calm
I as given Organidin NR liquid- stops the cough in a second , I wake up coughing every morn and cant stop. I dont smoke either.. Works like a charm!
The cough is from the Riba.
All opiates/opioids are cough supressants. Promethazine cough syrup can be compounded with either hydrocodone or codeine. Taking an occasional Vicodin while on treatment is not drug abuse.
There is a coughing solution called PROMETH
It's about the same thing in a syrup solution - and it worked like heck for me.
