Cough prevention

Patient

Q: Hello Doc, im now having a bad cough, and im taking a lagundi leaf capsule... im removing the powder from the capsule. i was thinking that it could have a quicker effect? am i right about what i think... also, its always a sequential illness. first, i was catching cold. then it will be followed by a fever with colds. when fever subsides, next thing i'll be dealing with would be bad cough. its always been this way with my system. next time, when i catch fever, may i already take cough meds to prevent coughing the next day? or what can you suggest, so next time this happens, i would be able to prevent coughing. thanks
