So..I recommend starting with the cough Meds, so the pain isn't worse by coughing. Then, if pain continues, add the Oxycodone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My doc put me nasonex (mometasone) and tessalon pearl for cough and post nasal drip, sneezing, stuffy for over 3 weeks but I still can't stop coughing. Need sleep?
See below: If your cough is a post-viral cough, almost nothing helps. Nasonex can take weeks to really start working well. Astelin nasal spray works pretty well. Chlorphenirimine works as good as anything if the cough is coming from post nasal drip. Lastly, you might try to find Chestal with honey - I've found it at Whole Foods and Walgreens. It works as good as anything I've tried that's over the counter ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
