My son has taken this two times today for his cough and it has not helped AT ALL. After reading these reviews, I won't be giving it to him again --especially if it even isn't working.

My daughter was given this medication mainly for her cough. After the 2nd day of use she began not sleeping well at night, and by the 3rd day her attitude was way different and she was having more fits of rage.

Comment:
Diagnosed "just shy of strep throat," this was my second experience with AldexDM - with the same results. The side/after effects made me feel worse that I already was! Just taking 1 teaspoon I would be very sleepy, and wake up with hangover effects (headache, spinning room, stomache upset). The same dosage of VI-Q-TUSS was taken with no problem during or after. And, apparently it is ... Show Full Comment
