What is the patients tongue and pulse indicate? What is your overall diagnosis? Start by reading our acupuncture for cough section.
If the cough is productive with phlegm, I really like San She Dan in the honey vials. It used to have snake bile, but these days it's usually Chuan Bei Mu. When I use this with children, I call it Poo Bear Honey. They love it. It's very good for phlegm. If it's a dry cough, you'll need something else.
