I have been so sick from a bacterial infection and strep throat.The coughing was pure torture.I couldn't sleep or eat.My P.A. prescribed Tessalon for my It's like a miracle,the coughing has stopped,but I do feel like I'm drunk,and it's difficult to concentrate,it's hard to walk a straight line.But that's the only side effect.If this happened again,I will be asking for this.I love it

I've had a cough for 3 months and my doc prescribed this med. I take 2 pills at a time and it hasn't done a thing to reduce my cough. But then again I've never had any med including the codeine cough syrup that has ever worked for my coughs.

I almost died because of this prescription. Mostly Dr. error, but beside the point. This medication is paralytic and if taken with other meds that have a sedative side effect, DO NOT TAKE.

This medication does absolutely nothing for my cough. Also it has not made me drowsy like other people have posted.

This drug did nothing for me at all. I took a 200mg dosage and within an hour took a second. Didn't touch my cough at all. The breathing treatments they gave me at the hospital def. Worked better.

I had an acid reflux situation to the extent I had uncontrollable coughing. I went to a walk-in ER and the doctor discovered by X-ray that I had cracked four ribs from the coughing. He prescribed Tessalon 200 mg. Subsequent use has been very effective in ending the coughing.

Totally ineffective, was given this med in ER. Coughed all night, no sleep and I think this med gave me a headache on top of everything else.
