So i've been having this horrible cough for about 3 weeks , it got to the point where i was just so congested and constantly coughing to the point where i couldn't breathe . So i finally went to urgent care and they diagnosed me with acute bronchitis they prescribed me bozonatate 100 mg for my cough but that didn't work at all then i recently got prescribed cheratussin AC and i'm still coughing up a lung ! its to the point where im vomiting everything i eat and i'm cramping from how hard i'm coughing . i've done research and i've heard that promethazine with codiene will help can i get any suggestions or feed back about this? im also currently taking azithromicin (which is helping alot ) and i'm using an inhaler as well ,the shortness of breath is gone and my chest isn't tight basically all my symptoms are going away its just this awful cough that driving me nuts!! i've been only getting 2 hours of sleep because of it .
gabymiami12; Glad you have been in to see the doctor but to get anything better for the cough your going to have to talk to the doctor again. The cough suppressant in the Phenergan is the same as what you have already which is the cherratussin ac it is the codeine in it they use as a cough suppressant There are some stronger one's on prescription but I can't realy suggest anything other than even hycotuss is hydrocodone as the cough suppressant that alway seems to work for me.Make sure your drinking plenty of water and explain to the doctor you can't even get 2 hours sleep and throwing up what is in your stomach due to the cough. Sounds like the codeine is just not strong enough for you. But the cough will get better as the azithromycin clears things up. Hope your feeling better very soon. Check with your doctor after 3 weeks it should be gone not the same as it was. hope you have a restful evening. Chuck1957
