I have been on this drug for Hypercholesterolaemia on and off for a couple of years but each time I have a constant chesty cough and sinus problems. The cough just doesn't stop and I get hardly any sleep. I used to take codeine tablets at night and this stopped the cough however I didn't want to continue on these as my doctor said they are addictive. So I am at my wits end. I have been on statins but my doctor took me off them as I suffered with side effects of painful muscles. I am getting really depressed as now I do not want to go out to public places as I always take really bad coughing fits.

Hello, Liz! How are you?

Yes, it is known to cause those types of symptoms as side effects, along with nausea, dizziness, headache and joint/muscle aches.

Have you spoken to your doctor? There may be something else you can use to prevent the coughing. Not all cough suppressants contain Codeine or addictive substances.

I have the cough problem with many generic drugs. My only solution has been to drink marshmallow tea. It sounds strange but seems but works for a while. I keep trying alternate generics until I don't cough anymore. I keep studying the inactive ingredients but don't really know which one brings on the cough. I try to stay away from magnesium stearate but am unsure if it is the culprit.
