I recently treated my cold and sinus sickness by taking advil cold & sinus, 2 tablets x 3 / day. However I continued to have an irritating and unproductive cough. I took klacid 500 twice a day for 1 week. When coughing the mucus was of white color. I was later told to take N-acetylcysteine 200 mg 3 times per day and I have been on it for 2 days without any noticeable difference. The irritating cough persists and when exhaling I can hear rippling sounds from my mouth as if coming from my upper chest. Should I continue taking N-acetylcysteine and for how much longer?
