Advair is good for bad coughing. Also, the non-norvasc type of BP drug in Azor (the whole class of such drugs) can cause bad coughing. By bad cough I mean coughing to the point of vomiting and/or loss of consciousness with airway restriction that makes it difficult to breath after the coughing. By difficult to breath I mean that it takes active hard work to breath enough air.Thank`s for the info Nana! I had a bad cough for 6month`s myself. It`s not whooping cough and I sure don`t want it.
When I was a nurse in an office, we used to vaccinate against that, starting at 3 mos. When do they do it now? I'm glad she was OK.Not trying to scare anyone...but when my oldest daughter was 8 months old, she nearly died from this. It came on very quickly..she woke up from a nap & started coughing/whooping...on the way to the ER, I had to give her mouth-to-mouth as my FIL drove ,b/c she stopped breathing a couple of times. Ours was probably an isolated event,but I strongly urge you to ask your doctor to prescribe some medicine so that you may have it on hand just in case your child comes down with it.
I believe its now 2 months...& she had her shots all up to date when she came down w/it. She must have built up an immunity after getting it b/c she never caught again, thankfully. My 2 older boys came down with it when they were 18m -2yrs old, but it wasn't as bad as dd's case...& again, my boys were up to date on their shots, yet they still caught it....but never again since then. I'm scratching my head on this one. None of my other children has ever caught it.When I was a nurse in an office, we used to vaccinate against that, starting at 3 mos. When do they do it now?

It was pretty much gone, but people stopped vaccinating against it...not all, but enough...so it's coming back.I heard they were vaccinating older kids before they start school. That surprised me.... I thought that whooping cough was pretty much non existent
