In brief: No cough medicine
The best medicine for cough is the medicine that treats the reason you are coughing.
If your cough is due to asthma you need to treat asthma. If its due to reflux treat the reflux. If its due to pneumonia, bronchitis or sinusitis then treat the infection. I do not like treating symptoms unless i know the cause. If you have a persistent cough you need to see your doctor.
