Health Tip: Dealing With a Chronic Cough

(HealthDay News) -- A chronic cough is defined as one that lasts more than eight weeks, says Cleveland Clinic.

The clinic mentions a few treatment options:

  • For pneumonia or bronchitis, antibiotics such as Azithrocin and Ceftin may be prescribed.

  • For post-nasal drip, an over-the-counter decongestant can relieve symptoms.

  • For severe chronic cough, a suppressant such as codeine may be prescribed.
