Re: Alternative cough medicine
Patients often don't think about this when taking "natural" remedies, because they're "natural" so they can't possibly be harmful.
That would be wilful withholding of information here in Australia where it's SOP to ask patients what OTC drugs they take, as well as prescription drugs. And they don't just ask you once, it's many, many times as I have discovered since my heart problems arose seven years ago. I now carry several copies of a written list.
