Q: I cough so hard I can't catch my breath

My Dr. just diagnosed me with acid reflex, I cough so hard sometimes it takes my breath away.  It is very scary.  He put me on AcipHex.  I've only taken it 3 days, I think it is helping, but I had another attack today with the coughing and losing my breath.  How quick should I feel relief?

thank you,

cathy kennedy
