Suggest remedy for chronic cough

Hi, I am having chronic cough for more than a year now. Doctor has given me Combihale FF 250 and duova inhaler. Still no relief. Now, my wife is also starting to show the similar symptoms and being treated for the same since last 2 months. Please advise.

Pulmonologist 's  Response
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
By your history and description, possibility of bronchitis is more likely.
Combihale is having formoterol and fluticasone. Duova is having tiotropium and salmeterol.
Since you are not improving with these drugs, you will need newer inhaled bronchodilators (indacaterol and glycopyronium).
Along with this, also take N acetyl cystine (NAC).
So consult your pulmonologist and discuss about starting these new drugs.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wishing good health to both of you. Thanks.
