Possibilities...: Your symptoms may be due to post-nasal drip which then causes you to cough when lying down to sleep. Ask your doctor to prescribe a steroid nasal spray to see if that gets rid of your symptoms. If the cough persists, it may be due to bronchospasm that would be treated with a bronchodilator inhaler. So, return to your doctor with these ideas. Good luck!!!
