This is the ONLY thing that works for a cough (Cherratussin MIGHT if it didn't taste so bad it makes you throw it up). I treat Tussionex like GOLD when Rxed. ONLY problem I have is that it's very thick, but dosed in tiny amts (0.5 tsp-1tsp), AND THEY MEAN IT (one ml too much, you're dizzy), but it's tempting to be safer (no cough) than sorry (cough, not sure if you should take m ...

If you need to really get rid of your cough this is the best medicine on the planet. Do NOT confuse this PRESCRIPTION syrup with anything over the counter. It is expensive but worth every penny. Yes you will feel sleepy and you must be careful and take an exact dosage. Any other cough syrup is laughable compared to Tussionex.
