It appears that statins can cause a dry cough and mucous in the throat and chest as an after effect in some individuals. All last year I had these symptoms and it was exhausting and caused the loss of my voice nearly all last year. Once I started taking MusinexDM the cough stopped, the mucous was removed and my voice is now fine. But, I take MusinexDM every morning now. Is there a problem if I do that?
I don't think there is a problem taking it long term but it just seems there may be some other way to solve the problem. Discuss this with your doctor ... he/she may be able to suggest something. If the cough is persistent they may be able to use some other cholesterol lowering agent.
