I smoke so I cough on occasion anyway but I got a cold that went into my chest and this medication worked for me. I was surprised because most cough meds. I've had in the past just put me to sleep but this one actually allowed me to sleep thru the night without coughing.

I have Chronic Bronchitis and this is what my doctor gives me for my cough. It works well with no side effects. I try not to use it very much so that it will work the next time I need it.
