It actually may not be a good idea to suppress your cough since it’s “the body’s way of cleaning the upper chest and throat.” However, when it’s to the point where you can’t sleep at night, then two teaspoons of honey will help ease your cough. (Source from Fitness Magazine).
Honey works in three ways; “(1) It soothes your throat, (2) it also contains a compound that blocks the cough reflex in the brain, and (3) its acidity kills bugs."
Remember the darker the color of honey, the more effective it is in your relieving your cough.
Have you tried this technique before? Do you know of any other methods that worked for you?
