My 93 year old mother has been suffering from a sneeze , choking cough and then excessive saliva . She takes Promethazine VC w/ codeine for the cough. (it is not helping) She is on BP meds and laxatives. Fluoroscopic exam was negative, chest x-ray was clear. This had gotten progressively worse over the past few months to the point that mom no longer wants to participate in activities in her assisted living nor eat in the dining room in fear she ll start coughing. ENT suggests a pulmonologist. Any suggestions for relief?
