Disadvantages: Strong and bitter
Every now and then, we may catch cold or flu or wake up with an annoying sore throat and we always want to get it rid of it the quickest rouse cause trust me, we all know the feelings when set to go work with a running nose. Flu cannot be cure in one instant but you can always prevent it from deterioting and reduce its effects and this where Lemsip lemon-flavoured come into the picture.
The Lemsip brand has been around for years and I always make sure to keep one lemon-flavoured pack at home. It is useful when you feel the early signs of a cold coming and by drinking a sachet may help you recover early as it also acts as painkiller. Preparation is straightforward; empty one sachet into a cup and pour hot water and make sure to stir well before intake. For better effects, it is advised to drink in small sips while and make sure finish it completely as most powdered contents are at the bottom.
While there are numerous ways to combat flu, it is advisable not to treat the medication as a straight remedy for all symptoms.
I consider Lemsip as a strong medication which helps me a lot during those bad hours and it is always been my first option when I feel weak and sick .However, be sure that you are able to take the medication if you have some other complications and consult a doctor for permission.
Summary: Lemon Lemsip may feel bitter to the tongue but so is all medications.
