Dry hacking cough, brown mucus, tiredness, no sore throat, headache. Started z-pack. Treatment?
I have been on a z pack for 5 days and just yesterday started a rattle cough and started coughing up brown mucus . Up till now, it has been a dry hacking cough. I don t have a sore throat , no headache , no runny or stuffed nose -- just really tired and a cough. It started on Sept 6th and I started the z pack 5 days ago. Is this normal?
I assume that you have under gone endoscopy of your voice box to know the status of vocal cords. If its normal, you need examination of your lungs. Meanwhile avoid spicy oily food and try antacids and cough suppressants.
