    This drug caused great confusion for my father, who was prescribed it by his doctor for bronchitis. My father was also VERY drowsy, talked in his sleep and when awake and talking did not make any sense at all. Very disturbing for his family, and I do not recommend it at all.

    It did reduce my cough, but I thought that a productive cough would be more effective (by taking an expectorant). ?

    I have been on this drug of 9 days now. It has helped very little. I still cough until I gag and can still not sleep because my cough is so bad. I just want something that will quieten this cough so I can sleep. Oh, and it has caused my temper to act up really bad too. Getting mad at the least little thing. Will be so happy to be off of these!!!

    My doctor prescribed this to me for a severe cough which was making me gag constantly. After about a hour the cough has subsided quite a bit. I have been taking this for about a week and my coughs have been more productive and are very light now if any. Without this pill I would have still been miserable. it has worked better than anything I have ever taken.
