Comment:
I took this for a persistent, dry cough. It definitely worked at suppressing the cough and lasted the full 12 hours. However, after the second dose (10mL), I felt lightheaded and dizzy for the next 8 hours. My visual acuity was also impaired. Basically having trouble focusing. I would not advise using this if you need to go to work!

Symptoms include severe dizziness, raised blood pressure, almost a drunk feeling. But, I can breath a lot better, and my cold symptoms are gone! LOL!

Killed my cough but then killed my night and day. I woke up literally dizzy and seeing double after a horribly restless night. All day I have been dizzy, wobbly disoriented. Honestly, it has been 19 hours since I took it and I'm still light-headed. Never again.

Comment:
I've taken this several times to help ease my coughing during the night so I can sleep. I've used the liquid and the lozenges. It had ZERO effect on my cough. Didn't suppress my cough at all. Plus it makes me have extremely unrestful sleep...when I take up I must wake up 30 times in the night! Not good.
