Brief Answer:
You should change the medicine.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
As you mentioned that Ritidine is not working since 2 weeks,it's better to change the medicine.
I prefer Rabeprazole 20mg tablet along with Levosulpiride tablet. I got excellent results with this combination.
Please take frequent small feeds.
GERD can cause cough.
If cough doesn't subside with the above medicine, please take Cough Syrup containing Codeine phosphate and Chlophenaramine maleate.
Nothing to worry. It will come down.
Hope I answered your query. If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.
Regards
