Did not help ease my cough at all. Does not clearly state what medicines are contraindicated. I threw away the bottle after 3 doses. I wish I had insisted on a narcotic cough suppressant so I can get some much needed sleep.

This is the 2nd time I've tried this medication. I can't get past the side effects to know if this drug works on my cough. It makes me sick to my stomache, gives me the shakes, and I broke out into a rash on my forhead. It also made me real dry and very foggy. NOT for me.

Comment:
The medication didn't work initially, but after the second day, it seemed to work -- my cold did get worse but the coughing subsided from 30 coughs an hour to about 2 per hr. For some reason I had difficulty swallowing the pills, not sure if it was due to cold or what. My cough greatly reduced but, I felt kinda dizzy and nausea -- I rarely have this effect with medicines.
