Hi Raj
I believe you should discontinue all medicines for a week or two to get rid of any residual traces of medicines in your body. The two causes you are mentioning are treatable. Going by GERD keep bowel clean avoid irritants have small amount of food at frequent intervals and herbal medicines like kamdugdha ras soot shekhar ras swarn yukat avipatikar churan.
the sinus or post. nasal drop can be cured with mahalakshami vilas ras swarn yukat and swamla.
these are the medicines to strike at the root cause but your symptoms of cough need locally acting herbs first and for that sy. crux and sucking of kanth sudharak vati offer excellent relief.

if you are having a dry cough; after eating oily food, you may have GERD(acid reflux) as has been diagnosed.
you have to avoid lying down immediately after meals, avoid spicy meals and avoid wearing tight clothes.you'll have to do an chest xray and consult a gastroenterologist as you need to be started on PPI and on prokinetic medications.
