    After trying many different meds, this is the only one that seems to relieve my 4 yo daughter's cough. She's had no adverse reactions, except she's slept, which is good.

    I gave this to my 10 month boy and it worked good for about the first day. Then the next night it seem to lose its effectiveness. Some reviews said that it made their kids restless and sick but that didn't happen with mine. It worked ok, he really didn't enjoy the taste but it worked ok in the beginning.

    I'm 26 and have been taking this for 3 days for a cold that I've had for 3 weeks. This medicine works great although it does have side effects. I have diarrhea and I feel pretty droggy but I am not coughing and my nose isn't stuffy. I don't look sick anymore. I would take ask for this again if I get sick. But like the other reviewers wrote I would not give this to a child.
