Phensedyl is just symptomatic treatment and can cause constipation and addiction, so I agree with your pharmacist. If you have asthma, causing the cough you need to be on proper asthma treatment, if it is an infection you need antibiotics. Ask your doctor to examine you and to send you for a lung function test and X/rays if needed to determine the cause of the chronic cough.
