I had laryngitis for years then I started to take codeine promethazine syrup one teaspoon a day before bed. It helps so much.

I received no treatment for laryngitis this time, but advice from the doctor. She advised gargling with salt water, but to see her again if the voice problem persists. It has been lost for 4 days then it was very harsh and whispery, then I had intermittent voice loss if talking too much. Now I am quite hoarse. It still hurts to cough, but I am bringing up phlegm now and then.

For my laryngitis, I was given a steroid shot, a Medrol dose pack, and vocal rest since I work in a call center and use my voice daily.
