I am 66 have been being treated by a Pulmonologist (MD) for over a year unsuccessfully for a chronic cough that seems to be getting worse. The Dr. has so far prescribed Advair, a ProAir rescue inhaler, Protonix (replacing OTC drugs for acid reflux). None of this has done anything to improve the condition. Xrays and CT Scans have been essentially negative. Now the Dr. has added Carafate liquid 4 x day (expensive and hard to take). I take 14 other medications for various ailments including diabetes. I concerned because it says it is for ulcers and that has not been diagnosed.
