    It's 2 AM and I can't sleep because I have this irritating little cough from post nasal drip I assume. Other than hot tea, broth and lots of water...any ideas
    on getting over this fast?????? :( DDD

    have you tried any of the OTC medications for it? Fisherman's friend is really good (but the taste is horrid).

    I've never heard of that. What does coughing have to do with fishing? ;)

    Coughing is what I do right before I start heaving when I smell fish cooking.

    I swear by two pillows, a shot of brandy, and two motrin. Sip the brandy. It burns and soothes at the same time. I get the cheap stuff- Christian Brothers. It's my night time miracle drug when I have a bad cold/cough.

    My grandma used to make us a 'hot toddy' when we had a cough. It was hot tea, lemon, honey and a generous shot of whiskey. Pretty sure the 'magic' ingredient was the whiskey. :)

    Suz, I'm snorting on my screen right now. I misread your reply. I thought it said 'a shot of brandy and two morons.':rofl:

    On a more serious note (they don't happen too often for me), you might try taking a decongestant an hour before bed. I have bad nasal drip during the night and for the first hour or two in the morning. That seems to help.

    That would be just my luck, wouldn't it?
