I give him "Buckley's" cough syrup. Any other suggestions to help the cough go away?
I suggest you contact his Dr. as cough is a common side effect and also a severe allergic reaction where one must seek immediate medical attention. His Dr. must evaluate if it is an allergic reaction or a common side effect.
