Often a cough that is worse when you are lying down is caused by acid reflux, or acid from the stomach backing up into your throat. Other reasons for a cough that worsens while lying down may be the post-nasal drip from a cold, or bronchitis or asthma.What is the best medicine for chronic cough?
The prescription medication gabapentin (Neurontin), an antiseizure medicine, has been found to be helpful in some individuals with chronic cough. Other traditional cough medicines often contain the narcotic codeine or hydrocodone. Though these medicines can help calm your cough, they also cause drowsiness and may become habit forming.
