Abstract Chronic cough is a problem thought to affect up to 15% of the population causing not only physical symptoms but also significant impacts on quality of life. Chronic cough can often be attributed to other medical conditions such as reflux, postnasal drip, or asthma. Although successful treatment is often possible by addressing the underlying cause of the cough, a number of patients are left with a refractory chronic cough. Currently available cough suppressants generally include the centrally acting opioids such as morphine, codeine, and dextromethorphan. Slow-release morphine has also been reported to be useful in controlling intractable cough with good tolerance to constipation and drowsiness.
