Ahhh, I was not sick when I got this cough syrup in the mail. But then my husband got sick with the flu and was coughing nonstop. I decided he was going to be the guinea pig and try it. First, when I opened it, a few drops spilled out onto my sheets. Let me just say I was not too keen with the smell or texture (it stained my sheets by the way). But I am not the hasty type and decided to keep an open mind. "Open wide husband" :). Lo and behold, it was not bad tasting he said. And most importantly, it worked. Within 10 mins the coughing almost stopped. So for the next week, whenever his cough would act up he would immediately ask for it. Inevitably, I caught the flu, coughing included. I asked him where he had stored it. I took one dose, it is definitely an acquired taste but it did its job. Unfortunately, that all there was left. One dosage. The coughing eased and i was able to function normal. Will definitely be keeping this one in my medicine cabinet!!!
It was a different colour and taste than I am used to with cough syrup. I finally got a cough and used it this morning. Initially, I quite enjoyed the taste. It has a dark red colour and a thin consistency but tasted nice however, the aftertaste left much to be desired. Probably didn’t help that I drank coffee soon after having a teaspoon. BUT, I no longer have a cough today...so that is interesting and awesome.
'Better than Buckley's' My only critique is the flavour; Most efficient cough syrup I've ever used -- I'm really impressed with the all natural aspect of it..
I found that I was unable to get past the taste of the product. As I believe the product helped ease some of the symptoms of my cold, I was unable to try a second dose due to the taste.
I liked that all medicinal ingredients in this syrup are organic herbs and oils. The taste was tolerable, but effective at suppressing my cough and relieving symptoms. It's very likely that I'll purchase this cough remedy over any other over the counter remedy.
