I have one of those chronic idiopathic coughs apparently. My lungs are clear yet I just cough away. Post-nasal or gerd are some possible reasons. Last night was another winner. I think I was awake until midnight. When that happens, I find myself making crude drawings of water heater systems. Anyway, I sometimes take cough medicine to suppress it enough so I can sleep. I use the daytime stuff since I don't need anything extra to put me asleep. I just need to stop coughing.

ACE inhibitors like Lisinopril can cause a cough, or maybe it's just a cold. Anytime you are coughing, it will cause some disruption in CPAP therapy. You need to figure out a little bit about the root cause to deal with it (or just let it pass). If you have congestion and can't seem to relieve it, then a Guiafsin formula like Mucinex might help, or if it is a dry cough, a cough suppressant might help. Since a cough can have so many different causes, it's kind of up to your to do a process of elimination and find what works. Drink plenty of water. Can't hurt, and might help.

I'm sorry to hear that AlanE Sad

On my side it is more like normal cold symptoms.

Cough medicine will probably help me Thanks

All the best in your therapy !

Thank you Sleeprider!

I think I will have to let it pass because it really sounds like a cold.

No worries. Water heating systems must be fascinating to somebody. Dont-know
