I have used this before and it didn't work then. This time though, my throat and stomach hurt from coughing and I had not had sleep for a couple nights so I had nothing to lose to try it again, only this time I took it with a advil cold and sinus, and phew it worked wonders, no runny nose and no cough!!!!!!
