Anyone have a dry cough?

I just started a few days ago to have a dry cough.  I talked to my onco and she called in a prescription of tylenol 3 for me, which I haven't picked up yet, but will.  Just wondering if it is just the weather, damp and cold here, or, something else going on.


Thanks, Carlee

My husband had a dry cough and they prescribed codiene products; worked for a while. They then prescribed flexaril. The cough is pretty wet now and they are giving him liquid morphine every 30 mins.

my doctor gave me a prescription for tessalon perls that I never needed to use but many here reported success.  small coughs are fairly common and there are many causes   Check the humidity in your home as well.
