What's the best way to stop a cough

Posted 05-16-2012 at 12:02 PM by Dynamithix
Seriously, I'm dying here

Medicine doesn't work, hot drinks don't do anything and I can't stop fucking coughing, I can't sleep well, please

Kill yourself.

or...

see a doctor. If cough suppressant doesn't work, you may have something more serious. Is it a throat cough or a chest cough?

I don't know, it does hurt a bit on the chest when I cough. I'm just trying to drink a lot of juice and hot drinks and get some rest but I can't hold the coughing, it hurts if I try to resist it for longer than 10 seconds.

Some kind of irritant might have gotten in your lung. If that's the case, the coughing may eventually dislodge it, but you can only cough for so long before you end up hurting yourself.

You been hanging out in any condemned buildings or sulfur mines lately?

No, I don't smoke. And we did have baseball today at school so a lot of dust in there... but still, I have had the cough for a few days now so it couldn't be just that.

Fuck me, no one ever just goes to the doctor on this forum do they? Cough more, drink water, take more cough syrup, try honey, or go to the doctor, y'know, the guy qualified to diagnose your illness.

Smoke weed

Actually don't. That'd probably make it worse. Just give it a couple days, drink lots of green tea, and take cough medicines. Even if it doesn't seem like it, they are working.


I also second JennyGenesis' idea.

Don't just buy some antibiotics. Go to a doctor and get him to tell you to get some antibiotics.

I did say 'Get' rather than 'Buy'. The implication was that they'd need to be prescribed by a doctor.

I had to clarify after I had a mental image of him waling into a chemist and saying "gimmie some antibiotics" in a really low, gruff voice. He was also wearing fingerless gloves and a beanie.

Of course we do have a good health insurance here, I just haven't visited a doctor yet because I got the cough only a few days ago and till yesterday, it wasn't that bad. At least now I can breathe well and I don't have to cough all the time. And fuck off STM.

I just thought it was ironic that you complain about me not seeing a doctor when you were the one who said you hate doctors and won't go see one when people were telling you to go see one.

Not necessarily ironic, I never said I wasn't included in my statement, I hate doctors but I still go when I need to, hell I had to go about a month ago.

E: And I'm not complaining, whether you go or not doesn't affect me in the slightest, seems a bit odd you wouldn't though...
