r I want to ask which medicine should be taken for people who are coughing but suffer from stomach acid and are over 70 years old

1 Answer:

Dear Ernie,


Cough and acid reflux are 2 different diseases with medications that generally don't affect the other conditions much. However, some conditions of these 2 diseases can be related, in this case, for example, stomach acid that rises to the throat can irritate the throat and cause a sensation that triggers coughing. Therefore, in the treatment of cough, it is important to also pay attention to the condition of the stomach by living a stomach-friendly lifestyle such as:

avoid spicy food, coconut milk
Avoid caffeinated drinks like coffee
improve irregular eating patterns
psychological stress management
stop consuming herbs or painkillers without a doctor's indication

In principle, those who are worried about the side effects of drugs on the stomach can give them a break from taking medication, for example by taking the drug after eating. Some coughs are effectively treated with over-the-counter medications. However, if the complaint persists, do not hesitate to consult a doctor. Here we attach an article about coughs. May be useful.
