I like that you can buy this in night time and day time versions. It really helped with nasal congestion, and made it possible to sleep. It's probably one of the better products I have used to combat a flu-like virus, and it made me able to function in the day.

Tried these caplets as a last resort and was amazed how fast it cleared my mucus/phlegm, which enabled me to sleep well at night. Highly recommended but not sure where to buy the product in Australia. Can anyone help?

When I have viral bronchitis this is my go-to medicine. The expectorant helps me get the phlegm out and the other ingredients help my aches and fever. I buy it again and again and recommend to everyone.

Best product to clear phlegm

Review Questions: 
Province: Manitoba
Age: 55-65
Review Text: 
After being hit with a cold for the second time, and trying numerous over the counter liquid cough products, I tried this product for the first time. I was able to sleep the first night as it controlled my coughing. It appears to have cleared the phlegm from sinuses and throat and definately is helping clear the chest congestion. The next morning I did not take a tablet and by late afternoon was coughing again so have learned to take every 6 hours until congestion is cleared.

As a senior, the instructions are too small to read, therefore, opening the blister pack was almost impossible, until I used a magnifier!! Would not buy again, althought the product itself is good.

Product with serious side effects

Review Questions: 
Province: Quebec
Age: 55-65
Review Text: 
I used this product to relieve cough and congestion. The first night I had problems sleeping with heart palpitations and restlessness. The following day was not better as I felt dizzy and nauseous the entire day. This continued the second night with increased heart pounding. I stopped taking it. Although this product cleared the congestion for what would be restful night, the side effects were counter-effective. I would not reuse this product.

Would recommend but with caution

I am 58, over the years I have taken many such cold relief products without issue. Using this product for the first time, three nights in a row, I consumed two tablets before bed. Each night I had borderline horror dreams and severe sweats. The first night I did have a fever so I took no note. However even as my cold was abating and the fever had been long gone I suffered poor interrupted and irregular sleep, bad dreams and sweating so bad I had to change my T shirt twice in the night. I had purchased the 24 tables box but after the third night I gave the balance to my neighbour who has yet to test the product. I would never use this product again. In light of how well the product worked at reducing chest and nasal congestion, I would recommend it to anyone who does not suffer such debilitating side affects. After all, maybe it's just not for me.
