I am now 62 years old and one of 12 children. Dr. Drakes Glesco was a staple in our home. Mother used it for every cold we had. I remember the taste was terrible but what does a little girl know. It worked

I am 42 years old and I can still taste Dr Drakes. It for sure worked better than anything today but my stomach turns a bit even thinking about it today.

I am 77 years old and I had to take this awful cough syrup as a kid. I can still taste it today. Guess it worked though. I�m still alive.

I am 58 and I shuddered everytime my Mom reached for the bottle. I never knew it was for cough! It always made me throw up, seriously, without fail. It was HORRIBLE tasting and feeling in the mouth.

I am 58 and I dreaded it when I saw my mom reach for the bottle of Dr Drake's Glesco. I have been trying to find out what was in the horrible tasting stuff. It was thick and felt slimmy in my mouth. I must admit it stopped my cough but my goodness there had to be something they could put in that stuff to improve the taste.

I'm 69 yrs.old and I remember it well.I can see the bottle in my mind.It was the most evil tasting,thick,sweetish,gray with a horrible consistency.But it worked.I think I was too afraid of getting another dose to cough again.
