Did you know that not all coughs are created equal? Different types of cough require different diagnostic approaches and different cough treatments. So, when it comes to cough treatment, there is no universal solution.
To be effective, cough treatment must target the specific cause(s) and trigger(s) of your unique cough. Do not waste time and money and expose yourself to risks or side effects with the wrong cough treatment.

Chronic Cough is a complex medical condition with multiple contributing factors. Cough treatment for Chronic Cough involves medical detective work upfront to establish an individualized profile of your unique cough. Then, a choreography of prescription and over-the-counter medications and voice exercises and therapy can begin.
A common cause of Chronic Cough is an overly sensitive cough mechanism that is easily irritated to produce cough. This syndrome is called “hypersensitive cough reflex” in the medical literature. The cough reflex has three components: neurogenic, inflammatory, and behavioral. Generally, medication aimed at cooling down the cough reflex is part of the cough treatment plan.
The importance of beginning with a precise diagnosis of the cause(s) and trigger(s) of your cough cannot be overstated. A sequential, trial and error approach to cough treatment is often ineffective, wastes time and money, and includes unnecessary risks and side effects of the medication. A comprehensive cough treatment approach expedites relief from cough and is based on each unique patient’s situation.
