In my humble view there are no
cough syrups on the market that really help with cough. One has to address the underlying problem
causing the cough, e.g. post-nasal drip (mucous dripping at the back of the
throat) or an upper respiratory tract infection (usually viral). Best that you chat to your doctor and he can
treat the underlying cause. Additional
cough mixtures sold over the counter or by prescription have little value and
in fact can cause problems. In the USA
such cough mixtures are banned in children.
