is there any that could said as the safest of all the OTC for dry cough? (in terms of side -effects). the cough is mild (not heavy or severe) yet persistent (hence very painful throat), so want to start with the lightest dose..

thanks

Water.

In the form of beverage (cough prophylaxis), humidifier (moisten nasal passages to trap more pollutants), and cleaning agent to remove dust and other irritants from your immediate environment.

^ tongue-in-cheek reference

A prophylaxis is a preventative measure.  Condoms are a prophylaxis against sexually transmitted disease and pregnancy.  Flu shots are prophylactic for influenza.

There are also prophylactic moves in chess to guard valuable pieces.
