Try Mucinex to help slow down the mucous. Also, have you tried an anahistamine like Zyrtec. You may have a touch of allergy too. You can take Mucinex and Zyrtec, they are compatible and was prescribed to me.

Re: cant shake this cough off

Apparently there are a lot of coughs around right now even here in Canada! everyone is coughing, chances are it is a virus which won;t be helped by antibiotics, it can take upwards of 6 weeks for a cough to clear up not to worry you I had a nasty cough for 7 months!!! Yup honestly May till Nov a few years back, dr tried every thing inhalers, sprays 2 type of antibiotics I even had a scope done....nothing helped then one day it just was gone...boy I was relieved! So where I am going with this is I am sure its just a virus.
