Not sure if this will help but.....on Taxol, I developed severe laryngitis. My doctor said it wasn't a side effect but his nurse said that she had seen a lot of it. It lasted for over 2 months and on many days, I couldn't speak at all and I was getting scared. I decided to see an ENT doctor who helped me greatly by letting me know that the laryngitis would go away about 4-8 wks. after I was off Taxol. He also prescribed Prilosec which I took for 2 full months. I now have my voice back completely! I don't think it can hurt seeing an ENT doctor because it may be that the cough is coming from your throat area. Good luck.
