Sometimes I get that cough if I catch a cold or because of allergies or sometimes I can spit out some sputum, but that's really rare. Usually I have a dry cough which is more of a problem.3/27/2012 at 03:03 AM

I'm told the cough will get worse over time. I've been prescribed a morphine medication but I haven't taken it yet because it makes one sleepy, and I don't want to spend my life sleeping.1/28/2012 at 08:32 PM
