Thanks for posting the query on XXXXXXX
After going through your query, I would like to comment the following:

1. Your clinical symptoms and investigations point to a diagnosis of ?cough variant asthma.

2. You need to visit a pulmonologist for further management.

3. You need to take the following:
a. A metered dose inhaler with formoterol + budesonide (Budamate metered dose inhaler with trans sapcer V)
1 puff in the morning and 1 puff in the evening

b. Continue montek LC

c. You can shift to Tb synasma (doxophylline) 400 mg twice a day instead of unicontin E.

d. For the cough , Cp. Benz pearls twice a day should be ok.

e. In case if you have associated cold, you need to take azeflo nasal spray.

f. Also take an antacid.

4. You need to continue inhalers for a minimum of 2 years of symptom free period.

5. Also do take yearly influenza and 5 yearly pneumococcal vaccines.

I hope I have answered your query. I will be glad to answer follow up queries if any.
Please accept my answer if you have no follow up queries.
