In brief: Depends...
Treatment for a nonproductive, chronic cough depends on the etiology.
Some possible etiologies include bronchospasm, gerd, post-nasal drip or even a combination of factors. All these etiologies have entirely different treatments so treatment depends on the suspected etiology. Your doctor should evaluate your cough so the correct treatment can be rendered.
