Yesterday was my first day to use. Right before I went to bed last night, I took this medicine. All night I felt like I had caffeine so I couldn't sleep at all. I coughed all night.

Comment:
After a week of all-day/all-night coughing, I'd hoped this would work. I'm still coughing like I'll cough up a lung, and now I have a stuffy nose too (one of the listed side-effects). Every 8 hours is not a good dosage regime for someone hoping to catch up on lost sleep. Requires utmost precision on timing. (Not that it matters, since the cough is still here anyway). *sigh*

I just started the meds today and I have cronic COPD with a flair up of bronchitis and when I cough it felt like my eye was going to pop out. After taking the pill my cough subsided.
