My daughter has had this cough that doesn't seem to want to go away. Back in February our family had been hit twice with a flu of some sort. It came with explosive diarrhea and projectile vomiting. None of us had fevers but just let it run it's course. We eventually got over it. Now my daughter has developed a deep cough that seems worse at night. She still coughs during the day and I went to the doctor who gave her amoxicillin...but after much of her prescription was taken she began throwing it up. SO we stopped giving it to her. My brother suggested last night over the phone that it might be a bout of bronchitis. I've never dealt with it before so I took his advice when he said to try an expectorant/cough suppressant. We used Robittusin DM last night and then again this afternoon....tonight the cough seems more deep and she is also starting to have a runny nose . Is this a good sign that the medicine is working?Answer Question

Did you tell the doctor about her reaction to the amoxicillin? It might be possible she is allergic to it. Hope you talk to him/her. Also ask to run some allergy tests and take an xray of her lungs & throat to clear all other possibilities.
Well, If anyone around her is a smoker, then no amount of medication will help her. I hope that is not the case.
