Welcome to Health care magic
All the Medicine you prescribed non of these are for cough , Omeprazole is a PPI ( Proton pump inhibitor) If you do have gastritis. You can use Omerazole 20 mg in morning before breakfast at least 15 minutes and before dinner 15 minutes and gaviscon 2 spoons after every meal. thats the proper use for the Medicine.
If you do have cough you can use Hydraline OR Combinol syrup
take care have a great day
