I'm sitting at home today, huddled in blankets, with a January cold. And feeling thoroughly down in the dumps and not at all Elle Woods-like, let me tell you! However, without this product, I doubt very much whether I'd actually be able to sit at the computer at all - I'd probably have to go to bed, and would get no writing at all done today. Lemsip are sachets of flu remedy. You pour them into a mug and add hot water, producing a steaming hot lemony drink. The taste isn't something you'd go out of your way for, but it's not unpleasant (unlike Beecham's Flu Plus, which I personally found made me feel more, not less, sick!). For those that dislike lemon ... Read the complete review

I felt compelled to write this after one of the most horrendous experiences I have had. I woke up this morning with an awful sore throat and blocked nose knowing that this will be the seventh cold since September...still I continued to attend my first ever driving lesson and wait until I got home to see if it 'passed'...it didn't and this evening I raided the medicine box looking for my tub of Vicks (I used it up last time), my Sudafed tablets (someone pinched them) and my cough medicine was also taken. I realised that after the chemist had closed and with a 'farty' supermarket on my doorstep the Lemsips were the only option. At about £3 for box containing 10 packets I .. Read the complete review

I thought I?d got away lightly this year, but oh no? here?s the customary cold, a month or so late this year. I remember being given Lemsip as a teenager and hating it ? I don?t know whether it has changed or my taste has, but now I love it! I was bought a pack of the blackcurrant flavour sachets last November/December for a really bad cold and found that they had a very positive effect on me. This time I picked up a box of original lemon sachets, and I have to say I seriously like them both, despite half the world still thinking they are repulsive! *Price* I paid £2.89 in Superdrug for a box ...

My recent bout of the dreaded 'virus' left me scouring the shelves of Boots for some comfort. Knowing that nothing would cure me other than time, I was happy to take something just to help me along. Boots were offering 3 for the price of two on hundreds of over the counter medicines so I was able to try a couple of new products, well new to me anyway. The kids were coughing quite badly so I bought them some Buttercup Syrup, I got myself some Beechams tablets and for the hubby some Lemsip. Unfortunately I used up the Beechams pretty rapid and that left me with the option of my usual co-codamol, which would only help with the headache and any fever or the ... Read the complete review

You simply boil the kettle, empty the contents of the sachet into a mug and then fill with boiling water. Give the fluid a little stir and then drink away. Within 30 minutes or so you'll start to feel better. The lemsip sachet contains paracetamol, and phenylephrine hydrochloride to help relieve "headache, fever, blocked nose, body aches and pains and a sore throat" as Lemsip say themselves. The Lemsip Max range contains guaifenesin which I believe helps relieve chesty coughs. Although I have seen blackcurrant flavours on the shelves, I always opt for lemon. I love the taste and would quite happily drink it of an evening if it didn't contain ... Read the complete review
