Suggest treatment for cough - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
I have a very bad cough since 2 days.
It's very hard to sleep in the nights as i'm unable to breathe properly while coughing badly.
And, also while coughing my head starts pulling back and starts aching.
Can you please suggest something.
Besides the cough what other symptoms you have?
Symptoms as in?
No, i do not have anything as of now. I just have a bad cough. And, i feel very weak as well.
yeah, i get something like a saliva.
Is it plenty or just traces?
May I know your age?
Do you smoke?
Yes i do. But, not a frequent smoker.
Do you have any other medical complaints such as diabetes, high blood pressure or heart disease, asthma or allergies?
No, i don't have any complaints.
Let me brief you.
Yes, very frequent dry and hacking cough can be very distressing.
But without associated complaints and with short duration of history it is not serious yet.
In this instance I would start Syp Tus q 1tsp three times a day
which syrup is that?
And, do i need to take that after food or before food?
along with steam inhalation three times a day.
Please note that this syrup is only given to reduce intensity and severity of cough.
Actually, i need a prescription for it. I don't think medical shop will be giving to me.
It would take a few days to weeks to settle down.
You need to watch the progress of complaints and report to the doctor if other associated symptoms occur or you develop more sputum with it.
i will do that.
Tusq D is available over the counter at some places; check with the local pharmacy.
Do you have any more questions?
Sure. Thanks Dr. XXXXXXX
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
