No: A cure for cough syncope is a difficult query. Most of the time stopping or treating the cough will prevent the problem for most patients. The three main causes of coughs in adults include post nasal drainage, asthma and reflux (gerd). A good workup for the etiology of the cough is the main treatment for cough induced syncope (fainting).
