Brief Answer:
Precautions advised

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, sad to hear about her being unwell.
She should not refrain from Medicines dear.
Excess of cough can lead to preterm pains and of course exhaustion.
Ask her to take warm water every time along with hot tea and coffee 3-4 times a day.
She can also take mulatthi and saunf which are good for cough but all these remedies are simple and not 100% effective.
So taking cough syrup for 3 times a day is better along with above precautions
So Counsel her accordingly and hope she will be fine soon.
