Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My mother is 68 years old and coughs when she lies down. She has been suffering from this problem for three to five years. She has not been able to sleep at night. She is taking Olmesar 20 mg and Zyloric 100 mg. Her hemoglobin is 10.5 g per dL. Is she suffering from Lady Windermere syndrome? She does not have a fever but has weight loss and extreme fatigue. She has also acquired anemia lately. In addition, she has a history of pleurisy and prolonged malnutrition.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern.

The Probable causes

Olmesartan causes respiratory tract infection and bronchitis, which can sometimes lead to cough if used in the long term.

Treatment plan

I suggest her to take the tablet Fexofenadine 60 mg at night for such an issue. Home remedies are very important. I suggest her to gargle with lukewarm water. Consult a specialist doctor, discuss with them and take medications with their consent.

Preventive measures

I suggest her to take a bland diet only.

Regarding follow up

I suggest you follow up after the test reports.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
