Continuous cold, cough, worsens at night, taken medicines. How can I get rid of it?

Hi. My name is Jennifer. I have had a cold for about a month now. The sniffles aren t too bad. But the cough is still there and it always gets worst in the middle of the night around 3AM. I wonder what causes this to happen? I have tried to drink cough medicine and cold & flu tablets, and even Amoxicillin as antibiotics but it only just calms it down for awhile but the cold doesn t really go away. What should I do? I am tired of coughing like this every night.

hello and welcome to hcm,
do not panic. try azithromycin 500mg for 3 days o.d or any other combination, along with anti cough syrup. also try levo citrazin b.d for allergy as well.
if it still persist then go for sputum analysis and consult a physician for TB CHEST.
