In brief: Yes..,.
If you were prescribed this antibiotic by your doctor for your cough, then you need to finish the prescription to reduce the risk of developing resistance.
You were prescribed the antibiotic probably for acute bacterial bronchitis so you need to finish the antibiotic course as prescribed.

In brief: Amoxil (amoxicillin)
Unless you have an adverse reaction, you should always finish your antibiotics as prescribed.
Otherwise, you risk developing antibiotic resistance. If you do have what you consider a reaction, tell your prescriber.
