    try taking antihistamines such as claritin which is not sedating. Probably you are having post nasal drip which trigger you to cough when you lay down.

    my mom used to say a similar thng and her remedy was a cup of hot tea . it's from the health food store called like throat coat or something. it has an ing. called slickery elm in it and seemed to put her right to sleep. she passed n she had emphasema . i'm no doc but , it seemed to work for her , for me i have a night time allergy it's like a bloom from my neighbors hedge some times known as night blooming jasmin or mock orange. .. so there are to possible answers better than none . i hope yu didn't wait a long time like your question had fallen on deft ears sometimes thats really hard to take when you are hurting...love and aloh, nanny READ MORE

    1.Why don't you try drinking lukewarm water instead of room temp or cold water.

    2. Try ginger and put it in hot water and take it lukewarm.

    3. Try not to eat sweets.

    4. Drink plenty of water.
