OK to stop: Cough medicines are only for symptoms so if your cough is better, you can stop the cough medication. If you were given an antibiotic on the other hand, you always want to finish the course.

Stop anytime..: It's just a cough suppressant correct? It's not an antibiotic or asthma medicine? If the medicine is bothering you with drowsiness more than it is helping your cough, you can stop it.
