Hi Caz, nice to see you posting again. Sorry you are having trouble at night with that cough, do you have your radiator on on your bedroom at night? I used to but found the heat made me cough. Try turning it off see if that helps. Let me know love Bernadette 😳 xxx

I have COPD and caught the nightmare cold that's doing the rounds in Cheshire. I found sleeping with my pillow raised on a firm cushion has helped to stop the coughing at night.

Hi Caz doctor gave me something called montilukas to take at night it keeps your airway open, or if your constantly coughing try taking cough medicine like night nurse see if that helps you hope you feel better x
