PURPOSE: Cough is one of the most common symptoms of respiratory tract infections and it is a frequent problem encountered in general practice leading to a medical consultation. The annual prevalence of cough in the general population is reported as 10-33%. Although acute cough which is usually associated with respiratory viral infection is not a problem to manage, chronic cough is frequently a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge as it does not respond to usual treatments. There are many studies that show the use of NSAIDs for the treatment of cough.Moreover cough often requires treatment with antitussives as it could have a great impact on quality of adults’ life.
