If the source of your cough is any kind of bacterial infection, getting that treated with anti-biotics is probably the best way to go.
If the source of the cough is irritants such as dust or chemical fumes, you should, of course get away from them. Then simply constantly sipping water might help, as can using any sugar free hard candy to sooth the irritation if it is in your esophagus. Sometimes even if the source of the cough is irritation further down, such as in the bronchus, the throat can become so irritated just from that coughing that you begin to cough even more from throat irritation. Water and candies can slow that coughing too.
If you are coughing due to asthma or pneumonia, geeze, get those treated!
All this is just based on my own experience, of course.

I have been coughing now for 5 days, don't know why, what is the best cough suppressants for people with diabetes and high blood pressure.
Good advice has been given. I would just add a bit more. You should NOT suppress a productive cough; that is, a cough that produces sputum that you can either swallow or spit out into a tissue. If you have an infection, coughing is the body's way of self-clearing the mucous produced. If you cough up stuff that's not clear or white, it's highly likely that you have a bacterial infection and need to see a medical professional for an antibiotic. Also, try drinking plenty of water if it's not a dry cough.
As was mentioned, nasal allergies can often produce a dry, irritating cough that lasts for days. If you're having sneezing or a runny nose, and if and only if your cough is NOT productive of sputum, you might want to consider trying an over-the-counter antihistamine drug like Zyrtec. It could stop the drainage that might be the trigger for your cough. But again, only consider an antihistamine if you're sure that you don't have an infection. Good luck!
