I'm allergic to Sudefed. The one time I took it I got really bad hives. So clearly, me taking it is a bad idea. So, I have had this persistent cough for more than two weeks now. I can barely sleep because I can't stop coughing. The over the counter meds are doing nothing. So I make an appointment to get a prescription for something.

I'm in a new city, so I've only seen this doctor once before. But my allergy is on file. And she specifically asked me if I was allergic to any drugs and I told her. I was expecting a prescription for Codeine, which is what I've usually been given before for a long-lasting cough. Yet when I get my prescription filled, it is the generic for Mucinex D, which has Sudefed in it. Since the prescription was sent right to the pharmacy, so I didn't see it until I picked up the med. And now I'm flying out of town tomorrow for a week and have no way of getting back to the doctor to get a different prescription.

I just want to be able to sleep.
