a. Overview

Coughing is the body’s natural response to irritants in the throat and airways. When stimulated by irritants, nerves in the throat send a cough reflex or impulse to the brain. This causes the abdominal and chest wall muscles to contract, pushing a strong burst of air to the lungs. Occasional coughs are normal and healthy, but chronic or sustained coughing may indicate a disease or disorder. Coughs that yield discolored mucus or persist for several weeks could be indicative of an underlying condition necessitating medical attention. It is important to remember that coughs are not a disease; they are but a symptom.

Coughs can be either acute or chronic. Acute coughs are typically due to cold, flu, or sinus infection, and go away after about three weeks. Chronic coughs last longer than three weeks. Studies show that both acute and chronic coughs reduce quality of life.

Coughs are also divided into productive and nonproductive, in which productive coughs clear mucus from the lungs but nonproductive coughs do not.

Causes of productive coughs:
  • Viral illness
  • Bacterial infection
  • Lung disease
  • Stomach acid reflux
  • Nasal discharge
  • Smoking and other tobacco use
Causes of nonproductive coughs:
  • Viral illness
  • Bronchospasm (spasms in the bronchial tubes)
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • ACE inhibitors (high blood pressure medication)

Most coughs are caused by viral infection. Patients and doctors must be careful not to take or prescribe antibiotics for a viral illness, as this incorrect treatment would expose patients to the risk of allergic reactions and antibiotic side effects with no effect on the viral illness itself

Other common causes include:
  • Allergic rhinosinusitis (inflammation of the nose or sinuses)
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (emphysema or chronic bronchitis)
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Exposure to secondhand smoke
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Lung disease such as bronchiectasis, interstitial lung disease, or tumors
  • Lung infections such as pneumonia or acute bronchitis
  • Sinusitis leading to postnasal drip

b. Treatment

Cough suppressants have long been the go-to answer for symptoms. However, there is minimal evidence to show that these treatments are as effective as patients might like. General cough suppressants are prone to interacting with many medicines, such as antidepressants. Additionally, combination remedies that include decongestants can raise blood pressure and may be dangerous for those with high blood pressure. On another level, narcotic versions of these remedies have both pain-relieving and addictive properties and must be used carefully.

In addition, no new licensed cough treatment has appeared on the market in approximately half a century. This may be because various studies have claimed that over-the-counter cough drugs including cough suppressants and expectorants lack efficacy. Physicians often warn children away from taking artificial cough medicines due to their disputed efficacy and the chance of negative side effects. Psychologists and pharmacologists propose that over-the-counter cough treatments are more useful as placebos than as actual drugs, suggesting that while young children should avoid them, there is little harm in older children and adults using them. However, it is important to note that some cough syrups are sedatives and capable of causing fainting, and in some cases death.
