Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX,
Thanks for posting your query in HealthcareMagic,

If you have symptoms of dry cough alone, without any other co- existing complaints like history of asthma, allergy to dust, rhinitis; I would suggest you to take the following medicines for a few days.

- Any cough syrup containing chlorpheniramine, phenylephrine and dextromethorphan, available in brand name like Syp. TUSQ-D.

- Also take T. SINAREST twice daily for 3 days.

This should help you with your symptoms.

Please feel free to discuss further,

Regards
