Maybe: Persistent post nasal drip (allergy or non-allergy related), acid reflux, asthma, or vocal cord problem are common causes for persistent cough.

Doff That Cough!: Something's going on here. First, just don't take any more of that stuff. There are other ways to beat a cough. I assume you're taking this for a cough, right??

They could try therapy you couldn't do at home, like a nebulizer or other medications, etc ...Read more

What is so bad about drinking alcohol while on promethazine dm? No additional details needed

What is so bad about drinking alcohol while on promethazine dm? No additional details needed

Drug interactions: Would need to know why you are on Promethazine for give any kind of rational answer, but alcohol increases the activity of Promethazine and vice versa; in other words there is more toxicity with both drugs together than just adding up the toxicity of the two separately. Driving on that combination would be particularly dangerous. How much alcohol? A little, not much; a lot, a bunch of problems. ...Read more
