6 month old child, dry cough. Given asthalin, breastfed. Safe medication?

My baby girl is 6 month old. Since last 2-3 days she is suffering from dry cough . Even she don t want to take NAN also. But there is no problem in breast feeding. Her temperature is 98.5 whole day. Though she is very much jolly but last 2 days she is nagging continuously. I have consulted a doctor and he has given Asthalin. I just want to know whether this medicine safe for my baby or not. Please suggest.
