I am a physician with expertise in Functional medicine 

Best cough remedies :

Slippery Elm powder : dissolve in hot water : it forms a gel which helps soothe cough 

Zinc Cough Lozenges :zinc is fabulous for cough avoid chemical additives in the cough drops 

Quercitin : is a plant based remedy that works as effectively as Zyrtec or Benadryl

Honey and lemon in warm water or tea

The best OTC cough medicines contain diphenhydramine ( aka Benadryl) or Guanefisin ( in robitussin ) 

mold fashioned steam humidifier with eucalyptus or lavender or both

If the cough is from a cold, i make a tea of 3 cups water, 5 crushed garlic cloves, including skin, juice of 1 lemon  and the juiced lemons, 1/2 tsp. cayenne, 3 T. honey, 1 thumb of ginger diced. Simmer it for 15 minutes; then off the stove for 15 minutes. Strain. Discard peels, etc. Drink 1/4 cup of juice every few hours.

1-) I use lemon, honey, and red onion but if you don't like the red onion you make without it.

this is very good for coughs, congestion, and its antibacterial.  

2-) Ginger tea is excellent and it has many properties. Ginger is my favorite root, I love it. 

3-) Clove tea is amazing for the phlegm.

I love nature and natural plants are divine. Just try and you won't regret it.

I hope my recommendation can help everyone around the world and you can have a beautiful and healthy life. Love & Peace

I am not expert, and I do not like to use medicine, so in saying that I will tell you what works for me.  I use Elderberry juice, it isn't a fast cure (it took me about 5-7 days to heal when I started it), but you drink a small amount several times a day until your cough passes, then you continue to drink a little every morning and night to help your immune system, so you don't catch it again.  They have several remedies you can purchase at Whole foods or a health food store, just ask the clerk to explain the differences to you.  I started with the Sambucus brand when I was sick, they have several to choose from.  Let us know what you do and how it works for you.
