Heavy-Duty Restricted Substance Cough Syrup (may cause dizziness, vomiting, seizures etc etc) is a) to be taken with food and b) to be taken at bedtime. This is how one gains weight, guys. Also not to be taken with anti-histamines, muscle relaxants, or codeine products. You know, the stuff daycare workers live on in the allergy season. However, fingers crossed, it seems to be working, marginally. Maybe if I took a full dose it might work even better, but I'm already light-headed enough from other causes.

However, had occasion to go into the naproom at work to-- well, basically, hand three woken kids out to waiting staff as another staff tried to put a wailing new bug to sleep, and then pat a fourth child back to la-la-land. Ten seconds there saw my nose gushing and throat spasming uncontrollably, only I did control it so as not to undo all our good work. So it's definite that a major factor in this thing is dust and grit, which blows into the room through the not airtight at all window into the vestibule into the yard.

Ugh, so sorry to hear that!

Have you ever tried benzonatate, a/k/a Tessalon? It's a cough remedy in pill form that is non-narcotic. It doesn't work for everyone, but it's been useful for me and some others I know.

It is a prescription drug.

Tessalon may be non-narcotic but the possible side effects read the same as whatever I have now. However I haven't actually noticed any problems from not taking my usual array of pills, which suggests they weren't working in the first place, or were at least placebo. I'll keep it in mind if the syrup stops working, because it has that hopeful note 'Limit alcoholic intake' rather than the present one's DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL.

And you umm might consider taking things easy? Especially with Popes descending, which is almost worse than being an Olympic venue.
