Have dry cough causing vomiting. Need a permanent cure

I have a cough, more like a hacking, dry cough that often results in me having to throw up because there is no other way to relieve the sensation of needing to cough. Coedine cough syrup and Ventolin HFA work short term, perhaps 4 hours. The coughing attack comes without warning and leaves me unable to speak, until I literally cough up/throw up food/stomach fluid. It's nasty and very embarrasing at work or in public.

Do you have symptoms of acid reflux too? Or repeated throat clearing and foreign body sensation in your throat? Dry irritating cough? Reduce the amount of tea, coffee, alcohol, spicy food etc. Take plenty of water. Don't lie down flat immediately after meals. Take Pantoprazole with domperidone twice daily before meals and syp oxetacaine three times daily
