I was given tessalon perles, singular, and Ventolin inhaler last week, then a Z-pack Tuesday. Still have a dry hacking cough. Anything else to do?

I would suggest seeing your PCP for cough that lingers or worsens over the next one week. You may need a course of antibiotics or steroids, depending on other factors. A spacer mask should be used with the inhaler for better delivery.
