Fr the last 3 nights I have this dry cough when I go to bed and it is keeping me up at night. I have tried cough drops and even took some of my daughters children's delsym last night (and it made me feel drunk)! Suggestions???????

Adult robitussin. If the cough is really bad call the dr he can give you codeine syrup it works really well. It's prescription though

DH uses Tussin CF but it's an expectorant and makes you cough.. Try a little vicks vapor rub under and around the nostrils..

A Spoon full of honey works wonders for a dry cough. If you have any chest congestion though, I would use Mucinex.

HONEY   or a good salt gargle could help as well.  1 teaspoon of salt in warm water, gargle and spit.

Honey!  I recenlty read a study that honey did better for coughs than any OTC medicine.  Just make sure it is REAL honey - most 'honey' in stores is colored corn syrup - best to by from local farm or farmer's market to make sure it works.
