Cough wheeze Okay I’ll see the doctor! January 28, 2009 3:01 pm

Cathy and I try to avoid the doctor unless absolutely necessary. It’s not a philosophy I enjoy as I had a friend in college die because she put off going to the doctor. I know that keeping the adults healthy is in everyone’s best interest but checkups for the adults hurt the budget. All that said, Cathy is tired of my cough. It hasn’t stopped since before October 8th but the source may have changed. See, the antibiotics killed off the original cough but at the same time the doc put me on high blood pressure medicine which has coughing as a side affect so I have now been coughing for over three months! I give in. Tomorrow I’ll visit the doctor and see what we can do.

Try Olbas cough drops or a teaspoon of sugar with just enough vanilla flavoring to color the sugar.

That won’t do a thing for a cough that is caused by blood pressure medicine. The only thing that will help will be adjusting the medicine.
