Although it has helped my cough a bit after 10 days use, I'm still coughing. Going to come off it for a day or 2 then try an OTC cough medicine.

This medicine did nothing to relieve my cough. I went to the nurse at CVS because I was coughing so much and had sharp chest pains when I coughed. If anything after taking this medicine for two days my cough is worse.

Comment:
Very effective and long lasting, but expensive as heck! That's why in spite of effectiveness and ease of use (tiny gel cap) I have to knock down the satisfaction. But if nothing else will kick the cough, I guess it may be worth it. But try others first.

Comment:
Had a sore throat and gradually developed a cough over the course of a week. Contacted the Dr when OTC medications (Mucinex, Nyquil were both tried) were not suppressing the cough enough for me to sleep. 200 MG three times a day + mucinex d, calmed things enough for me to rest.
