Hello and thank you for your question.
Based on what you described it sounds like you have dry mouth. This can be caused by homeopathic medications, various diseases, dehydration or mouth breathing. My suggestion is to look to see what the side effects are to your medications. Just to treat dry mouth, I would recommend chewing gum with xylitol in it, use biotene salivary supplements, and drink/sip water throughout the day. A lot of homeopathic medications will not help with a cough and you may have to resort to more traditional western medical intervention. I would recommend getting evaluated to see if you have TB, chronic bronchitis, asthma etc which can cause a persistent cough.

Best wishes and good health
