thanks all for your help. I know i need to rest, but every time i lay down i just cough and cough. I have that hylands cough with honey for children... is that the same stuff you are talking about? It says to consult doc before if preg or nursing... but i know that it says that on just about everything, so if you all have heard it's good, at midnight, i'm desperate to try something. i don't want this to break out into something even worse!
