In brief: Depends on cause...
Is your cough worse at night because of being in the supine position? If so, your cough could be due to gerd or post nasal drip or even both.
Both have different treatments but the treatments for both are very effective. See your doctor so treatment can be initiated and you can get a good night's sleep! good luck!

In brief: Treat the reflux
Night time coughing could be due to reflux.
Eliminate caffeine, elevate the head of the bed and try otc reflux meds. You should also be evaluated and have someone look down your throat to rule out other causes.
