In brief: Possibilities...
Possibilities include bronchospasm, which you are being treated for. Other possibilities include gerd, post-nasal drip or even a combination of factors.
You should see your doctor again and perhaps add the treatment for one or both of these to see if your cough resolves and then meds can be taken away slowly to see if and when the cough recurs.
