if the cough is more in the night and if it is dry cough, it may be due to bronchospasm. for this, inhalers are the best choice. you need not worry that these are powerful medicines. in fact they deliver smaller dose and directly to the lungs. they cause lesser side effects and faster relief than the oral medicines.
