Coughs that won't go away for the entirety of the day are extremely annoying. But if they keep you up all night, it can make you feel awful to the point of being debilitating.

If you need stronger relief, you can find over-the-counter cough and cold remedies in pharmacies. These products may contain a combination of medications in a single capsule or pill:
However, be aware that these cough treatments cause some individuals to feel drowsy, while others feel energised and remain awake. And some of them cannot be taken if you have certain health conditions, such as high blood pressure. Therefore, consult your physician before purchasing one.
Additionally, steroid-free or steroid-containing nasal sprays may help alleviate your cough.
When you lie down to sleep while suffering from a cold, the flu, or a sinus infection, mucus can trickle down into your throat from your stuffy nose or sinuses. This can make it difficult to breathe. Because of this, you may find that you cough more frequently at night. It's possible that the drip will itch the back of your throat, which will make you want to cough to get rid of the clog.
However, a cough that keeps you awake can also be caused by a number of other conditions like asthma, allergies, heartburn, smoking or blood pressure medication.
If your doctor determines that one of these conditions is the cause of your cough, you will need to treat that condition specifically to obtain relief. Check our cough treatment at home in Costa del Sol here to discuss the optimal plan with your doctor.
