Covonia Dry and Tickly Cough Linctus
Advantages: Eases the discomfort more than some
Disadvantages: can be a bit expensive depending on where you buy
I am currently experiencing something new to me, and have been for about five days now and although most of the medicines I have tried have been helpful mostly, I still find myself almost without a voice and still with a very dry chesty cough. I usually get a 2-day sniffling and perhaps just a hint of a cough and then I'm OK again for another 4 years. Coughs and colds have always eluded me until this year when I seem to have accumulated my 57 years worth in a oner.
Covonia Dry and Tickly
I'm guessing most of you will have experienced this all before, but as I say it is all new to me, so I have to rely on advice from those who've been there and got the T shirt, namely my wife. I've tried all the expensive and cheap bronchial mixtures all with varying amounts of successes, but if I've learned anything from this pretty ghastly experience then it is that in the case of cough medicines the cheapest one's have certainly proved more beneficial than those supped up brands.
This said I was at my wits end and knowing the likelihood of getting antibiotics if I went to the docs was slim I decided to try yet another branded product. To be honest I had heard of Covonia only a little until that bull thingy appeared on TV saying it was the best. It has the usual ingredients of aniseed, menthol, capsicum tincture and glycerine so I wasn't expecting miracles.
Being the ingredients were similar the taste came as no great surprise, pleasant but not something you'd want to take frequently unfortunately. The only difference with Covonia was that on its way down it felt like it was doing something, the warm feeling usually associated with these types of medicine was there in abundance and it was way warmer than the others. This warming sensation seemed to spread out as the thick dark brown liquid struggled down my dry throat leaving a rather hot yet comforting film over my throat. At about half way down and at lung level probably, it seemed to spread wider and it did feel as if it were easing the discomfort and dryness. Unlike other similar products I had tried this warming persisted longer and seemed to be far more beneficial than the others. It could simply have been though that the warming effect being so powerful in comparison was taking my mind off the dry and irksome chesty cough.
Covonia cost roughly £2.49, but can be substantially dearer depending on whether you are prepared to shop around, and frankly if your feeling a bit **** have a chesty cough and a very dry throat, then you ain't going to be worrying about a few pence or maybe even a few quid..................you just want fixed. My purchases were made via a laughing wife who although sympathetic to my plight just finds the fact I'm almost speechless very funny.
Over the last week I have perhaps tried six different bottles, I haven't finished some that were less effective, and I have come to the conclusion this is perhaps the best, or at least it has been for me, it has seriously eased the pain and discomfort, and although I know it is no cure it has made me feel at least slightly better. Apparently my lips are moving whilst I type this, which has provoked yet another little smile from you know who.
Summary: Probably the best cough mixture in the world
