Cough is a very common symptoms of post-nasal drip.  Cough mixtures unfortunately don't work.  You need to start with some antihistamines.  These are available over the counter.  However, it's best to visit your medical practitioner and take a 360 deg approach on the problem.  Treatment options may include an anti-inflammatory nasal spray, allergy avoidance measures, and even desensitisation injections, which can work within specific context.  There are also other treatment options for more difficult cases.
