    I've hat two severe colds. This medication stopped the spasmodic coughing that made my back and chest yo sore and was wearing me out. It worked very well for me.

    This drug actually seems to make me cough more (lengthy, uncontrollable, spasming coughing)rather than suppressing my cough. It does not make me drowsy (wish it did; then at least there would be one benefit). For me, it is completely ineffective.

    I have an ear infection and post nasal drip, along with a sinus infection. I have been coughing like crazy. This medication really did help with my cough but not for more like 4 hours. It is meant to be taken 3 times a day in my opinion. But it worked wonders for me and helped me sleep.

    I was prescribed this for a cough induced by bronchitis. I might as well have swallowed a Tic-Tac for all the good this medication did me.

    I had a URI and was coughing pretty bad. This was one of my prescriptions and it has barely helped. I've been taking it 3 times a days as prescribed and haven't noticed and significant changes other than being more drowsy.
