    It made me cough more and didn't work for me at all, don't know what this stuff is but I'll never use it ever again. My body didn't like it at all. The rest of the ingredients are nothing but sugar which is always bad for a cold or flu or bronchitis.I returned to essential oils and teas and natural remedies and I'm scheduled to see a natural wellness doctor who I'm sure w ...

    Had congested sounding cough. I coughed so hard I vomited. After one dose of liquid med I spit up a plug of mucus, blew my nose and have felt wonderful since. And with none of the drowsiness I was afraid I would have

    I felt very sleepy after taking this medication and ftel like it was dragging me down. I have never taken Delsym which contains Doxtromethorphan and most likely won't use it again because of the drowsiness it caused me. I have used Robitussin just for coughs without any problems. I think that contains a smaller amount of dextromethorphan than Delsym.

    well just took this stuff and once I figure out if I am even speaking out loud and my brain returns to earth....I will probably retire this stuff. The name obviously speaks for itself....xxmethxxx in a bottle. This is too strong. I think I will just cough. Don't like being in fog. Hopefully will wear down tremendously for my morning drive to work.
