Hello,

First, let me explain why your mother's cough aggravates when she lies down.

When someone is having cough there is some amount of fluid inside the lungs and in the lying position the fluid trickles to the throat, irritates and so the irritating cough starts.

Now so far as deriphyllin is concerned, it is a simple bronchodilator which dilates your airways and helps relieve coughing. So don't worry, the doctor has prescribed it right.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
