Nope. One does not take someone else's prescription. A dry cough is very different from a congested cough, please see a doctor. You may may strep throat or another ailment needing very different treatment. Suck on cough drops or hard candy. Chewing gum can also help a dry throat. Drink tons of water, not coffee, soda or alcohol. Do so until you see the doctor if this does not relieve it in a few days or it has been a few days. Again, don't take her medication.
I usually recommend to my patients to take 1 teaspoonful by mouth ever 6 hours as needed. I would definitely take it before bed time. So you get a proper sleep,because usually with a dry cough.It messes up your sleep pattern. But in my experience with patients this is the most effective cough suppressant medication. No more then a week your cough should be gone
