has anyone found anything to alleviate this dreaded cough? I've been coughing 12 years following an upper respiratory infection. I've been tested for everything; all normal/negative. Even though my tests were negative I've been treated prophylactically with zero relief. I don't cough when I sleep.
I have the same condition and this could be chronic neurogenic cough. There is a fairly new treatment called superior laryngeal nerve block that can treat neurogenic cough. I'm considering this option
Gabapentin has been effective for some. Amitriptyline is another option to try. Neither of these worked well for me but has for others. I take 75mg of Tramadal 4x a day to calm my cough but it's difficult to find a doctor to prescribe it for an extended time.
