Benylin Expectorant

Hi. My wife's been having a cough from her 8th month of pregnancy. She delivered on July 3rd, 2013. However, the cough continues. Negative on a blood test to see if it is an allergy. What could be the possible reason & why does it take so long to recover from the cough? She was having Amydramine cough syrup. Today the Dr. prescribed Benylin Expectorant & we were also handed Diphelin by the pharmacist. Is it ok to have this? I'm a bit concerned as it's been over a month now with the cough.
