The medication reduced my cough but left me feeling as if I had a raquetball stuck in my throat.

Comment:
I have asthma, so whenever I get a chest cold, it wrecks havoc on my lungs. This medicine really does work in a short amount of time, although I wish it lasted longer than 3 hours. I'm taking it to get over acute brochitis. I'm amazed at how quiet I am (no more hacking!) and my husband is happy he can sleep peacefully (and so can I!)

Comment:
I have cough- variant asthma and have been taking this drug for the past 8 or so years- each time I have had an attack, which I would say is approximately 2-6 times a year.
