In brief: Depends....

Treatment of your cough depends on the etiology of the cough.
If bronchospasm is present, treatment would include bronchodilator and steroid inhalers. Other possible etiologies of a chronic cough include gerd, post-nasal drip or a combination of factors. If your cough is not improving, see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment.

In brief: Mucolytic

Something like Guaifenesin is good to help break up the mucous.
It is found in Robitussin and mucinex (guaifenesin).
