It is not the simple problem of cough. As he is a smoker from a long time, it can be chronic bronchitis with acute exacerbation. Do a chest xray, blood counts, sputum culture senstivity. Use aporopriate antibiotic and use only expectorants like ambroxol and guaenifenisn. Do not use cough suppresants.

Good suggestion Dr!, definely a better replacement for codeine as dextromethorphan the replacement for banned cough syrups with codeine by our policy makers is not only less effective but almost ineffective.

Detailed history of duration of cough is necessary. Only syrup will not help. If every other possibility is ruled out of chronic cough then consider smokers cough and advise to stop smoking and various options to help quit smoking. Cough syrup content has to be decided mainly on the cause of cough.
