    Having Asthmatic Bronchitis, my doctor Rx'd this because I could not sleep due to coughing.I took my first dose and went to bed very early expecting to finally have a good night's sleep. It made my cough WORSE! I coughed violently all night and was extremely sore from coughing. Everytime I coughed, it was painful through my ribcage.

    I had a cough that remained one month after my initial cold. I would cough everytime I laughed or talked a lot. When I finally went to the doctor, he said I had some congestion. I didn't realize this because my nose was not runny or sneezing. This medication started working from day 1, that was 4 days ago. I was taking it a few hours before I went to sleep. I barely cough now and can sleep bet ... Show Full Comment

    I had a dry tickle that set off a mostly unproductive coughing fit after (I thought) I was done with a cold and an intermittent sore throat. I couldn't lay flat on my back or I'd hear a gurgle in my chest. The only position that gave me any relief was sitting up and leaning forward.
