Customer Question

I caught a bad caugh from someone,and it still persists a month later. I took expectorants to get out the form, but now still have a dry caugh. If I breath deeply it triggers it. Mornings and at night mostly. Should I try augmentin to clear?

If you donot have fever with cough than Augmentin is not indicated just to treat dry cough.

It would be ideal for you to try Anti- Histamine Tab Zyrtec 10 mg once a day for 2 weeks , hopefully this will help you out .

Meanwhile you should get Chest X ray PA View to look at lungs tissue please .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

Thanks .
