Increase dose: If in fact the cough is caused by acid reflux coming up into the laryngeal area it may take using the Prilosec twice a day. Of course, the problem may be caused by something else such post-nasal drip or even cough varient asthma. It may be time to see a cough specialist such as an allergist or pulmunologist.
