Welcome to HCM,
As you have finished Z-pack course, continue with Mucinex for few days more.
Mucinex contains Gueaniefen which will help cough reflex.
With Mucinex you will good expectoration and will help to bring more cough out.
As you are having more phelgm, take Z-pack for 2 days more.
Avoid fried, cold drinks and junk food.
Ok and bye.
