i have had a cough for 2 weeks now maybe longer and it is getting worse. i was prescribed antibiatics and was told to use rubitussin dm. it hasnt gone away and i am starting to think i am getting worse. i am having bouts of coughing where i cant catch my breath and i just cough and cough and cough. not really hacking anything up. i so need some relief!!!!!
A few things I find good are Jakemans cough and throat sweets you get them for £1 for 2 bags in Asda. Also how about buttercup cough syrup it is soothing and i think it is fine for preggos. If it persists I would just go and get it checked again you might need a change of antibiotic. Hope you feel better soon girls x
thank you, i am in america so i dont know if we have thoughs things hear. i am on amoxicilicin. they also gave me an inhaler which i have used only once. they didnt check my chest on an x-ray. she even said my lungs sounds clear but everytime i cough its so rough and i feel flem when i inhale which makes it harder to breathe. now my kiddies are coughing.
I have had a cold for 3 weeks now, started off in my head but this week I have been coughing more but mostly at night. I think lying down sets me off. My sister told me something which sounds impossible but works. When she had a cold in the summer her doctor told her to try and NOT start coughing, as this sets off your coughing reflexes and then you can't stop. Mine has been a tickly cough but I have found if I just ride over the sensation, maybe have a drink of water it passes. Otherwise If I start I just can't stop til I'm almost being sick.
thank you ladies, i am aware that honey soothes a cough but am worried about having some during pregnancy since its not pasteurized. i love honey though. i have been drinking hot tea, i heard that caffiene helps open your airways.
I've been drinking hot water with lemon & honey and that's working for me.......Manuka honey is AMAZING for things like coughs but it's also quite expensive so normal honey will do
Hope you feel better soon xxx
Thats amazing you say that, My OH said to me this morninkg to drink the honey he had in the cubord with hot water as its Manuka honey and great for the throat I laughed at him thinking Honey is honey and I hate it all. I will deffo have a glass of it in the morning though
Make sure you are drinking LOADS and LOADS of water! Water will help to keep things loose. Make it a point to try and drink a GALLON. Seriously. Now I just need to follow my own advice... I know when I do, it works!
