It appears that your son has upper respiratory tract infection mostly due to viral origin.

You will have to continue with robitussin to relieve the congestion .If the URI is of viral origin it might take a week time for him to get better.If he develops fever and cough even while sleeping or has vomits after coughs then get him examined by his doctor again to rule out Bacterial infection or allergic bronchitis.
