Beechams All In One
Advantages: helps reduce fever and aches and pains
Disadvantages: I am not a fan of medicines, prefer tablets
I like to think I am quite a healthy person and don't get really ill all that often, but when I do get ill, I am out for the count. Last month I was particularly under the weather and bless my boyfriend's cotton socks he came to my work place and presented me with a box of Beechams!
The medicine is produced to relieve the symptoms with cold and flu such as runny nose, headaches, chesty coughs etc basically all the symptoms I had! The three main ingredients (let's see if I can type this correctly!) are : Phenylephrine, Guaifenesin and Paracetemol. The Paracetemol helps relieve pain and fever, whilst Phenylephrine is for nasal congestion and to allow clear airways for better breathing and Guaifenesin helps clear the chest so secretions can be coughed up (bleurgh!)
I never like the taste of medicines to be frank so was slightly disappointed in the type he brought, but nevertheless feeling rough as ever I downed it anyway. It is orange in colour and and is quite thick and warm in terms of consistency and taste. It does seem to help my coughing, blistering throat as I swallowed it, so on this merit it is a good medication for me!
It is recommended to take 20ml every four hours or as necessary. As I am not a big believer of these medicine types I only took one dose a day for about 3 days but this was enough to perk me up a bit! I know full well that none of these medicines are actually going to cure me, but help me to feel a bit more lively and less drowsy and tired and I find I feel less sweaty and just feverish in general after having some beechams. In addition, the beechams within 15 minutes of swallowing I definitely felt my headache fade away which is amazing, and so the Paracetemol in this product is fast acting and provides quick relief However, I know the only thing that is going to help me get better is some good old bedrest!
I would definitely recommend a box of beechams if anyone is feeling under the weather as it does help the recovery process. At around £5 in boots its not half bad and will help you fight those cold and flu symptoms!
