I have used Benylin in the past but I wouldn't use it now, as I know more since I used to take it. I actually know of a couple of people who are addicted to Benylin, and take it because it makes them feel drowsy and helps them to sleep, one person is finding it almost impossible to come of and goes through about 4 bottles of it a week! If you have a bad cough that persists for more than a few days you should visit your doctor. I am actually against using cough medicines and I don't use them at all now and won't give them to my children either. The reason being is if we have a cough it is a perfectly natural response from your body, coughing helps ... Read the complete review

When I was a teen I remember I drank a small bottle of Benylin cough medicine just to get a cheap high. I was out of it for three days or more. I have no idea how I heard that this cough medicine can give you a buzz. People must be very bored to experiment with stuff like that. I have heard that mouth wash, cleaning products, and even urine, can get you high. Yes I said urine, how DISGUSTING, but very true! A few years later I started using cocaine, then I quit cold turkey. Then I started experimenting with gravol for about a year. I wanted something to relax me, since I quit using drugs and alcohol. Somebody mentioned to me that gravol works like an anxiety ...

Having suffered from asthma for almost 37 years, I think I am a guru on Benylin. Personally I have used it for 30 years to my knowledge. Back in the old days, you got Benylin in large brown bottles prescibed by the doctor. Benylin was the only thing that ever stopped me coughing, as soon as the cough starts up I still reach for the trusted Benylin, but only the original recipe works. It was taken off presciption and now sold over the counter. A small bottle costing a high price. In my mind such a good product should be still on prescription and be available through the doctor. Some people really rely on this tried and trusted medicine, me for one. ... Read the complete review

This is not a good choice for you if you like non-drowsy medicine, Benylin actually contains more of the same active ingrediant than is found in over the counter sleeping pills! However I love Benylin, I have been using it for coughs since childhood and have always found it effective (but maybe that is because it knocks you out for a few hours). Definatley not one to use when driving etc, I actually used to fake a cough on Christmas eve to get Benylin from my mum because I was always so excited I could not sleep! Not unplesant to take, but I have tasted better! ... Read the complete review

Benylin Childrens Tickly Cough medicine works wonders!! I have just popped out to buy my child some medicine for his poorly cough and stumbled across this in ASDA. The medicina cost around 2 pounds 50 and comes ina small box, within the box there is a measuring spoon (2.5ml and 5ml - one each end) and a glass jar containing the medicine itself. The medicine has a screw on safety cap to prevent any unwanted hands inside of it (i.e. baby!! lol) and has directions for use stuck via a label on the bottle. I gave my baby a 5ml spoon full at around 10.00am and from then to now his cough has cleared right up, ..ok his cough has not ... Read the complete review
