I bought this 200ml bottle of cough medicine from my local pharmacy. It cost me just £1.05, which I thought was a bargain.
The medicine comes presented in a 200ml glass bottle and it says on the bottle "for symptomatic relief of coughs and sore throats", just what I needed at the time. The medicine is a honey like colour and it smells nice and sweet. The dosage is 2 x 5ml spoonfuls, so 10ml in total. This is just the right amount to soothe the throat and take away the tickly feeling that you get with dry coughs. The medicine keeps well. I keep mine under the sink away from direct sunlight and it looks fine, even though I bought it around a month ago now.
After using this medicine my throat felt a lot better. It wasn't as scratchy and my cough died down a little bit too. Obviously you don't see the results straight away. It took around twelve hours before I started to feel a little bit better. The medicine is easy to take and it's also pleasant to take. It tastes really nice and you can feel it soothing your sore throat as it goes down. It does taste a little sugary but I wasn't put off by the sugary taste as I knew it was just a temporary fix. This wouldn't be something that i'd consume all the time, just as required.
This is great value medicine and it works. It's suitable for most adults and you get 200ml of it so it will see you through your cough/ sore throat until you feel better. Try it!
Thankfully I was not ill over xmas this year, but by the time the new year rolled in I was suffering with a pretty heavy cold. This dragged on for a few weeks and I was in need of something to relieve my symptoms. As well as having a blocked / runny nose, headaches and sore throat, I also had a darn annoying cough. I was stocking up on cheap supplies and found this Care+ Glycerin, Lemon & Honey with Glucose medicine in Poundland, where of course it cost just £1.00.
Product description: "For symptomatic relief of coughs and sore throats. This medicine contains glycerol, to soothe the throat and relieve the symptoms of coughs and sore throats."
The medicine comes in a glass bottle with a screw top lid. The liquid inside has a pale golden colour that goes with the lemon and honey flavour, and you can see the level clearly through the bottle which allows you to know how much you have left. It is very runny and this meant it got a bit drippy and messy when pouring out the required doses. I found it was a easier to take it using a little plastic medicine cup, rather than trying to balance the liquid in a measuring spoon.
Recommended adult dosage: 2 x 5ml spoonfuls.
This cough medicine is very easy to take. It has a lovely flavour thanks to the honey and lemon, and it tastes very sweet. The consistency is quite sticky and it gives a nice feeling against the throat when swallowing it, which I guess is the first step to soothing away the symptoms. It's always nice to take medicine that tastes good rather than having to suffer a bad tasting medicine when you're not feeling well! When I had a cough I would take this medicine 3-4 times a day, and would spread my doses throughout the day so that I could carry on about my usual business without my cold interfering too much.
The medicine does take a little while to get to work, but once it does start taking effect I felt completely at ease and my symptoms practically vanished. My coughing was significantly reduced and my sore throat was soothed. This really helped to make me feel more comfortable and gave me a much needed reprieve from feeling the effects of my cold. With using this medicine I was able to carry on with my work and it helped to improve my overall mood as I became more focused and less distracted by the cold. The only bad thing is that this just masks the symptoms for a short amount of time, and it does not actually work to make the problem better and remove the cause. However, it does exactly what it says it will and is effective without causing any side effects.
I think that this medicine gives very good value for money. It comes in a 200ml bottle, so contains 20 uses based on the adult dosage of 10ml per use. This works out at 5 pence per dose, which is excellent considering that I had to use a whole bottle over the course of just one week, and I can afford to buy plenty of it when I need to.
I would definitely recommend Care+ Glycerin, Lemon & Honey with Glucose, as it was a real bargain and works effectively. It gives pleasant tasting relief for dry coughs and I would happily buy this again.
