Q – Tips: PPI’s and Cough

  • If you were prescribed a PPI for chronic reflux-induced-cough, but aren’t seeing any results, be patient. PPI’s will alleviate heartburn sensation within a few days, but they can take up to a month to do the same for a cough.  This is because your throat takes time to heal and repair itself from the acid injury.  So, don’t start looking for another cause of your cough until at least a month has elapsed.
