Guaifenesin is an oral expectorant that is believed to increase the leaking of fluid out of the lung tissue and into the airways. This action thins (liquefies) the thick mucous in the airways and facilitates the clearing of the mucous by coughing. Clearing of mucous from the airways decreases cough.
Camphor and menthol are topical cough medications. Camphor and menthol ointments are rubbed on the throat and the chest as a thick layer. The anesthetic action of their vapors is believed to relieve cough. They are also available as steam inhalation. Menthol is also available as lozenges and compressed tablets.
Examples of products in the cough category include:
Cough suppressants: Benylin Adult Cough Formula, Buckley's Mixture, Diabe-Tuss DM, and St Joseph Cough Suppressant for Children and Delsym (effective for 12 hours).
Expectorant: Hytuss and Robitussin.
Topical cough medicines: Hall's Menthol-Lyptus Cough Supp. Drops, Mentholatum, Vick's VapoRub, and Vick's Vaposteam.
Cough suppressant plus an expectorant and other cold/flu/allergy ingredients: Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold and Cough, Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold and Flu, Comtrex Deep Chest Cold & Congestion Relief, Coricidin HBP Cough and Cold Tablets, Dimetapp Cold and Cough Liqui-Gels Maximum Strength, PediaCare Cough-Cold Liquid and Chewable Tablets, Robitussin Maximum Strength Cough and Cold, TheraFlu Flu Cold and Cough Medicine, and Triaminic AM Cough and Decongestant formula.
Since many of these combinations also contain an antihistamine, a decongestant, and an analgesic in addition to the cough suppressant and expectorant, they also provide relief of nasal congestion, sneezing, fever, and aches.
NOTE: In October, 2000, an advisory panel of the US Food and Drug Administration recommended that phenylpropanolamine, an ingredient in Alka-Seltzer Plus, Acutrim, Contac, Comtrex, Dexatrim, Dimetapp, Triaminic and Robitussin CF, be classified as unsafe because of reports of stroke associated with the this ingredient. In 2001, the FDA banned phenylpropanolamine from all medications.

how long have u had this cold? sometimes colds can linger for 2-3 weeks. drink lots of water and make an appointment with the doctor, just in case. are u running a fever? if so, u may have to be put on antibiotics to get rid of the bacteria.

If you're sure it's just a cold, then entrench. It really isn't at all uncommon for the cough to persist for two or three weeks, and there's nothing to stop it lasting that long. On the other hand, if you're not certain of your diagnosis, this is not the place for confirmation.

to be honest, all the med u taken for cough onli can control your cough, but not healing it. it can control for onli 30 min something like that.
be patient , it will heal completely after few days. when u are coughing non stop and forcefully, means that u r healing pretty soon.Source(s): i am pharmacy student

Were your medications over the counter or perscribed my a physician? If you have not seen a doctor, please go as soon as possible, also you did not say how long you have been coughing. At any rate, prolonged coughing is something to be concerned about, so please take care of yourself, see a doctor.
