Perceptions that habit cough was not as important as physical disorders were occasionally expressed as were concerns about the time required for suggestion therapy. However, despite the absence of a physical cause, these children have serious morbidity that is readily treatable. As to having the time, that is a lame comment. When necessary, a physician makes the time to provide appropriate care for a patient in need.
A debate on the subject of terminology for this cough disorder was arranged by Richard Irwin, a cough specialist and editor of the journal Chest, between one of the authors of this article (MW) and a neurologist, Tamara Pringsheim, MD. Skepticism regarding habit cough also was expressed by Dr. Peter Dicpinigaitis, current editor of the journal Lung. When provided a description of habit cough from one of the authors, he stated in an email, “I’m not a fan of science fiction”."
