If you really can't stop coughing, you can take Robitussin DM (not any other type). Things to try first:
Tablespoon of honey with tsp of cinnamon - just eat this every few hours - try to swish it around in your throat as you swallow.
Vicks Vapo-Rub on the soles of your feet, then socks. Seriously: I had bronchitis while pregnant and didn't sleep for three days because I was coughing so much. I got desperate after even the codiene syrup the Dr. prescribed didn't help. Did the Vicks thing and the coughing was gone within an hour and stayed away long enough for a full nights sleep.
