 My son has been coughing for several weeks. I took him to the doctor and she gave him some cough med. That was almost 2 months ago. HIs cough seems to be worse, but no other symptoms. Do I need to take him back to the doc?

the doctor may be missing something. I suggest that you take him to the hospital. The hospital is more equipped to run more detailed tests. He may be really sick. Please go to the hospital. good luck and God bless.

2 months is a long time with a cough.The meds should have cleared it i say in at least 2 weeks.I would take him back to the drs or maybe even the er to see whats going on with his chest.Is it a dry cough or is he hacking stuff up?

It's a dry hacking cough but it comes and goes. It is not a constant  cough. ALso he is 8 and  takes topamax for his migraines and I can not give him over the counter stuff. Thanks for your reply.
