I find after I take Bromfed DM I start coughing more. When I don't take any after 6pm I sleep fine with no coughing. I have not been taking the 5mg 4 times a day.

Hello, Kathy! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having.

That's unusual, since the Dextromethorphan is a cough suppressant. However, since you're laying down, when it happens, it may be due to the Pseudoephedrine in it loosening the nasal congestion, which may be draining down your throat causing the coughing.

Have you consulted your doctor? You may be able to change the time you take it, or just go to 3 times a day.

The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth.

Thank you so much for getting back to me. I took your advice and called the Doctor and started a new medicine. So far so good.

My nose keeps blocking up and the mucus gets very hard, and my nose is sore all the time. Can anyone recommend a remedy for this?
