After taking this medicine for a week, 3 times a day as prescribed by my physician. My cough continued day & night...I did not get any relief. I never knew that I had taken any medication, my condition remained and my cough became worse.

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*
