My 13 year old son was prescribed Bromfed DM for cough and cold symptoms. Not only was it awful tasting, it did not work well. My son was acting weird so I looked it up and Bromfed DM has a very very high alcohol percentage of .95% per teaspoon.

Comment:
This medicine worked well on the cough but my 2 1/2 year old daugher had many side effects. She started getting very clumsy, irritable and talking out of her mind. Though the medicine worked as it said it would, we made the decision take her off the meds due to the side effects.
