When I did finally drift of ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had an awful cough for 6+ months and figured it would eventually go away.. I started to get very nervous and went to the doc to get it checked out and he told me that it was probably a bacterial infection and prescribed 5 pills - not that many- which surprised me.
