I had a really congested chest, heard great things about this product, but it actually just made things worse. I couldn't cough, or break any of the mucus up.

I had not slept for a few nights because I kept coughing and it would wake me up. My husband suggested I try Benelyn. I wish I had thought of it sooner. After one dose of Benylin, my lungs felt so much better and I was not coughing all the time. That enabled me to get to sleep. We are going to a wedding and I will make sure I pack a bottle of Benylin.

I had a cold last Winter and had heavy chest congestion and cough symptoms. I bought this syrup after hearing good things but unfortunately it did little to relieve phlegm and control my cough. My coughs were still unproductive and didn't feel like my coughing was reduced. It did however help with sore throat.

This Extra Strength BENYLIN Product is Great!!

Review Text: 
When I get sick, which is usually once a month, this is my go to cough syrup. I can take it throughout the day and not get drowsy at work. I take it before bed and by the morning I can breathe and I am not having a coughing attack which is nice. This product is amazing, thanks Benylin for such a great product!!
