Dear Friend.

Dry cough can have many reasons. Most commonly allergy but for that montek LC would have helped you.

Sometimes, GERD (Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease) causes dry cough especially during the morning time.

Are you a smoker?

I would suggest you to take a combination of Pantoprazole and domperidone.

If it helps, its GERD.

you should get a chest x ray and haemogram with ESR.

Stay Healthy
