Symptoms:  Cough due to cold

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

I do not think that you should be taking charcoal for the treatment you are attempting. In allopathic medicine, there is no role of taking this medication and I have not heard of it used often.

Please see a Doctor to get diagnosed and talk about why you need the medication.
