    Had an extremely congested cough with heavy mucous that would not dislodge. Tried some of this new stuff at a pharmacist's suggestion. Expensive.

    I have had congestion in my chest and a horrid cough for months. Ivy Extract is the only thing that I have come across that can stop the cough and relieve the symptoms.

    Comment:
    My naturopath gave me some english ivy cough syrup to sooth a cough I had with pneumonia. The only help I could tell it gave was the same benefit I get from drinking water in the middle of a coughing fit - it settles my throat. But it didn't appear to diminish my cough or help me to sleep at night w/o coughing.
