Does the Levolin inhaler aggravates the viral cough?

Can Levolin Inhaler aggravate the viral cough? My son is 5.5 years and he has always been suffering from viral cough. He has severe cough at nighttime. Our doctor suggested Levolin inhaler on sos basis along with some cough syrup. But, immediately after we use the levolin inhaler, we find that the severity as well as the frequency of the cough increases, what might be the reason? is there any other solution we can have other than levolin inhaler.
