3. Unexplained chronic cough patients should go through a therapeutic trial of multimodality speech pathology therapy. 4. In sufferers whose test outcomes for bronchial hyperresponsiveness and eosinophilia come back negative, they ought not to be prescribed inhaled corticosteroids. 5. Patients with unexplained chronic cough may undergo a therapeutic trial of gabapentin so long as the undesireable effects and the risk-benefit profile are explained to the patient before starting the regimen.
