Q
Which cough syrup can I use for a persistent cough?

I am taking Lisinopril at this time. Is there anything that can help with the coughing or does the medication need to be changed? I have had this cough t\for over three months now

Don't bother. None of them really work. You can stop the lisinopril and if the cough goes away within a week or so and comes back after you restart lisinopril, then that is the cause. You should stop that and ask your doctor to substitute an alternative anti-hypertensive.
