    I am now looking for which of my meds causes me to cough and have a tickling in the throat constantly. I am 76 female and taking other meds for high cholesterol and associated problems. This is the first time I thought to look here. If you have any comments I would be happy to know if anyone else has this tickle in the throat..day and night.
