In brief: Wrong place to ask

This is the HT Public forum where volunteer docs answer questions about health conditions.
We don't offer treatment. The Texas Medical Board considers prescribing without proper evaluation inappropriate. They can/do restrict or cancel the license of any doc who treats without a valid patient relationship, retrievable records, history, vital signs & exam. If you need care find a doc & go in.

In brief: Give it more time

Assuming that you only have an upper respiratory illness and not pneumonia or bronchitis, your cough should last about 1-2 weeks.
There are some claims that honey helps cough, and that elderberry syrup or OTC meds with this help to shorten colds. You are not likely to need a prescription now.
