It depends on what is causing the dry cough, so it would be best to consult a medical professional, it is best not to use an antibiotic, without it being prescribed for you.

The NIH warns that it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash.

Are either of the patients in question on any other medications?
