I have used this for years in the winter when I have a hacking cough that won't let me sleep. The only time I take it is before bed and I have found that as little as 1/4 teaspoon works without the other side effects.

Worked immediately for my bad cough. Also took away muscle cramps. Had a little bit of a sore tummy but it went away within half an hour.

I had a really bad cough and it was hurting to breathe. This medicine is wonderful. I've noticed that some people aren't sleeping while taking it, but it's knocking me out. I couldn't possibly take this and work.

Stopped my cough, and I didn't gag on the taste. Medicine is not supposed to taste good... however this was not at all bad!

Second bout with pneumonia in the last 3 months. was given this after the perles made me worse. It controlled the cough to let the antibiotics work. Not drowsy, but not wired either. Thankful for the cough relief, better then the codeine syrup if you have sensitive stomach

This medication is very effective for suppressing a cough. It may cause trouble sleeping, so take it a couple of hours before bedtime.

besides the fact of not being covered by my insurance this medication was effective and wasn't too horrible to swallow.

Anti-cough effect seemed to wear off too soon and I was dealing with another bout of coughing until time for the next dose.

Works great - dr prescribed for bronchitis - used for daytime and Tussionex for nighttime - does make me a little shaky - but nothing I couldn't deal with to stop the cough
