His cough could be from a variety of causes. You should be able to use medications that his doctor has already provided him for symptomatic relief. However, if you note that he has difficulty breathing, blue lips or face, significant & persistent chest pain or he appears confused- then I would get emergency care. If he only has mild coughing immediate intervention may not be necessary.
