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 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 is the only product my husband uses especially in the winter season when he gets sick. It gives him relief and shortens the period of his cold and symptoms.

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!!
