    Easy to take, not to bad on the taste buds. But it did NOTHING! It did not make me tired, but the opposite, up all night. Did NOTHING for cough. Waste of money.

    Stop my cough due to Bronchitis very quickly. Taste isn't as bad as some of these review suggest. Drink a lot of water with this medicine.

    Comment:
    I have to be honest; being a narcotic I thought it was heavy duty and would work great. I was prescribed due to bronchitis, my recommended dosage was 5ml (my doctor said 7.5ml wouldn't hurt) and after taking 7.5ml at once, I still found myself coughing. I wasn't even really tired by it.
