Hello, I am Dr RB and I am licensed veterinarian. I am assuming that Brownie has a history of allergies and this is the reason for Chlorpheniramine? Has the Chlorpheniramine helped the coughing to subside at all? This medication is an anti-histamine and typically used in cats due to lower mg content of the medication. The problem may be with dosing; how much does Brownie weigh?

Can you explain the coughing in more detail? Is anything produced from the cough or is a dry hacking cough? If productive, is it mucous or clear in color?

Did the veterinarian detect/hear any evidence of heart murmur? Coughing can be symptom of heart disease, especially if you hare noticing other changes in Brownie such as decreased energy or getting tired easily. Does he have any of these symptoms?
