“ Brand: Beechams / Dosage Form: Liquid / Type: Coughs, Colds & Flu „
The weather is turning, the child have gone back to school and of course loads of germs flying around which means snotty colds or of course in the husbands case Man flu argh!!
Enter stage right Beechams all in one what a lot of fuss but imagine his joy when he discovered Beechams all in one pocket so off he went to work looking like a martyr with his Beechams pocket what a hero I hear you say but just to set the scene he walked out of the door leaving me with two young children one having an almighty tantrum and the other crying because she wanted dinners work seems the easy option!!
What is it?
Beechams is a cold and flu medicine that helps to relieve the symptoms as it combines three different medicines to fight the symptoms one being a decongestant which reduces the production of mucus helping to ease congestion, the medicine also contains a cough expectorant which loosens any phlegm making it easier to cough this up. And lastly good old paracetamol which helps to lessen pain and fever.
Cost and stockists
The pocket packs are available from most high street pharmacies and also the bigger supermarkets they come in a box of 6 and cost around £4.88 which in comparison to paracetamol at around 16p a box is expensive. However as it means he feels better quicker to me it is worth the money and of course these are very convenient for emergency use.
You can only use this medicine and cannot take with any other cold or flu medicines or paracetamol products you take 20ml up to 4 times in a 24 hour period. The medicine is non drowsy so is safe for anyone to take and to drive on as well. Like many medicines it is not safe for use in pregnancy.
I think these are excellent and do recommend them no more sticky caps everywhere and if you have a man like mine he will not take the tablets he prefers the liquid oh what a man! They are excellent for keeping in the travel first aid kit or for taking on trips a really good useful product.
Symptomatic relief of colds, chills and influenza including chesty coughs.
