i got a cold in december - then my cough wouldn't go away.  mostly coughing in the morning and before bed. 
so took my second antibiotic - then just got done taking prednisone for a week and it's slowly coming back.  my post nasal drip is crazy right now for some reason.  anyway, cough is coming back - it's ike when i breathe in, it causes me to cough.  my doc listened to me and took a chest xray and said he didnt think it was bronchitis.  postnasal drip or gerd but i think it's allergies.  i have had asthma tests in the 6 months - came up with nothing.  i didn't have the cough though when i had it done.
anyone else have this and can give me some pointers???  my pcp didn't even mention asthma when iwas there a week ago.

When that happened to me after a cold, I found that a humidifier helped. Have you tried Tessalon Perles yet? But yes, it drove me nuts too! Mine lasted about a week.
