Suggest remedy for persistent cough

Hi Doctor, I live in Bangalore, I am suffering from cough since two weeks. I got viral two weeks back ,I consulted homeopath. She gave me some Medicine but my condition didn t improve. So, she gave Azee 500. After taking azithtromycin, I was well. But I was coughing. I didn t take any medicine for 10 days. Two days back I took benadryl dry cough syrup . after taking benadryl , coughing increased and I was feeling cold and having running nose. Please advise.

All these symptoms stated in the query may be due to flu or allergic bronchitis or cold . Azithromycin is a good drug and help for bacteria . In my opinion you developed bronchoconstriction and this produces cough ( wheezing or whistling sound during inhalation exhalation).

When such patient visit my clinic I advise my patient to take monelukast+ bambuterol , once in day but if cough is severe you may need twice in day .
Benadryl is also a good cough syrup .
Hot coffee and ginger will also provide instant relief.
Since this is a prescription drug so consult your doctor for this.
