Please help me deal with this coughing! I haven't slept in four nights and my throat is just raw from coughing all day too. My chest and sides hurt from all the coughing too. Last night I resorted to taking Robitussin DM because I was at my wits end and was just hoping that getting some sleep would help me get well, but it didn't help at all! Then I was frustrated that I had ingested this drug against my better judgement and it didn't even provide any benefit.
What can I do to help relieve this cough? I'm already using a cool mist humidifier, hot tea with honey, lemon drops, Vick's Vaporub on my chest and throat, Vick's on my feet and then cover them with socks.
Additional vitamins I'm taking are 275000IU of VitD3 for 7 days and 1000mg of VitC each 2 hours until this goes away.
Anything I'm missing?
This is so bad that when I lay down, I cough so badly that it makes me vomit. The doctor said it's the worst case of bronchitis he's seen in a long time, but I'm not running a high fever so he doesn't think it's pneumonia and doesn't think an antibiotic will help.
