Cough mainly at night is usually associated with gerd or asthma. Use a ppi pantoprazole along with probiotics. Can go for dextromethorphan for cough.

The treatment of GERD includes: --------------------- * PPIs - esomeprazole, dexlansoprazole have worked really well in my experience * H2 Receptor Blockers - famotidine works best in my opinion * Gastric Prokinetics - cisapride in my opinion * Antacid - Gaviscon is quite good Additional measures for reducing night time cough: --------------------- * Elevate the head end of your bed a little * Have early small meals. Dinner especially should be light and at least a few hours before bed time. * Avoid lying down directly after a large meal * Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, spicy food, fried foods, chocolate, cheese, etc. * Excercise - reduce weight (if overweight) And if nothing seems to be working, Transoral or Laparoscopic Fundoplication to treat the cause of GERD that is the lax lower esophageal sphincter.
