No evidence that persistent cough treatments help patients, finds study


Curious, since I would not consider any of the treatments listed as therapy for a subacute cough! In Britain, apart from the fact patients will demand 3 or 4 courses antibiotics, and back it up with GMC complaints if not supplied, NICE-recommended management of a chronic cough (over 2-3 weeks?) is to refer to chest clinic and HRCT chest scanning, I think?
