the med has been in my system almost 24 hrs and not much, if anything, yet. After reading these reviews, I see it may not work for another 24 hrs. If it does it will be great, otherwise, I'm sure it's a dr's office visit - yikes!

I got this drug yesterday and it does not work. I cough just as much as I had before. I am calling the doctor today to see if I can get something else.

I must be immune to any cough medicine ever created. I have 200mg and they've done nothing for me. They don't make me drowsy either, which is a good thing. But, they have not effected my cough at all.
