This product claims to be an expectorant. An expectorant is supposed to help release phlegm built up in the chest, which was what I desperately needed. Unfortunately, in my case, it dried up my throat and chest, raised my blood pressure and did not allow me to sleep for 24 hours now. Let's see what happens in the next 24 hours. This is not what I was expecting from an expectorant. And this was all from one dose. I would not recommend.

This is my go to product when I have a wet or chesty cough. You can feel the product going to work within minutes and the effects last about 5-7 hours for me. Helps make my cough more productive and eases and discomfort of congested chest every time.

This product isn't strong enough for acute asthma.and clearing out the phlegm. Unfortunately I also had a reaction to the dyes which did not help me

Your company should really look into creating some of your products with menthol as a.flavor and dye free .. I had another reaction to the dyes in your products.

Works well but wish it lasted longer

Im currently going through a very chesty cough. I find this is the only stuff that keeps my cough at bay. I do wish it lasted longer as the 8hr claim on the box is incorrect. I can usually go for about 3 - 4 hours before i break out in embarressing coughing fits again.
