My daughter is 4 and had a sinus infection and was given this medication. It helped her get over the drainage and the coughing. She is actually back on it and cause she is now having sinus problems again. This did not change her personality in any way.

I completely agree----I have to say that it did suppress my cough but my side effects were frightening. I was very dizzy, light-headed and nauseous. My thought even seemed impaired. I hope I never have to take this again.----Terrible medication.
