Brief Answer:
It depends on type of cough that you have

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Cough can basically be of two types
one is in response to some inflammation and mucous in airways.
Second could be a dry type of cough (with no mucous).

Also it could be mild, moderate or severe type of cough.
It may or maynot be accompanied with other symptoms like fever, etc.
It maybe short term or long term.

Kindly describe your symptoms in detail so that I am better able to help.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

Since you didnot mention any mucous or fever, I will suggest that you simply try strepsil lozenges that work locally in throat. If that does not help then a cough suppressant lozenge can be sucked when the cough is bad upto 3-4 times a day. For example XXXXXXX Chericof or Kofarest lozenge. Dextromethorpan in cough suppressants can make you dizzy.

Alternative would be syrup like BENLYLIN syr.

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi again

For mild cough with mucous, ASCORIL-FLU syr is good combination. If cough relief is also needed alongwith mucous relief then BENADRYL COUGH FORMULA syr is correct formula.
