Veno's Chesty Coughs
Advantages: Eases chesty coughs, easy to take
For as long as I can remember my family have used Venos for chesty and tickly coughs. I can remember from being a little girl the box being in the top of the cupboard for when we would need it and my Mum still swears by it today. I always make sure we have some in the cupboard too so Venos is something that is ingrained in me!
Venos comes in two different types - one being this Chesty Coughs version and the other is the honey and lemon tickly coughs version. I have used both in my life and at the moment it is the chesty coughs version that is in our cupboard. The chesty coughs version is an orange box and it has "Venos" written in bold white font at the top on a blue background and the bottom says "Chesty Coughs" and an outline of a person on an orange background. The bottles comes in 100ml and come with a cap to take and measure the medicine with. Venos is available in all major supermarkets and chemists. I have also noticed that a few of my corner shops are selling it as well so it is a readily available, over the counter medicine. The costs varies between £3-4.
Venos does not use any sedatives in it which means you can still drive and work or just go about your daily routine. Ingredients Venos does use are: liquid glucose, guaifenesin, treacle and sugar.
Venos is a liquid so is very easy to take and swallow. With this one I would recommend having a drink nearby as it isn't a particularly nice tasting medicine!
I had a chesty cough last week which just came out of nowhere and it was slightly sore too. It was nothing to bother the Drs about so I pulled out our bottle of Venos. I take 10ml at a time and take it 3 times a day. Now this particular Venos tastes awful - it tastes bitter and is just really disgusting. I much prefer the taste of the honey and lemon one but that one just doesn't work on chesty coughs. When you swallow this one, you can feel it running through you, it is a really strange feeling but it is such a sharp feeling as it goes down. It almost makes your chest feel cold! It also soothes your throat if your throat is a little bit sore. It takes the edge of the pain of a sore throat for a about half an hour which is always a nice relief as we all know sore throats are just horrible.
I always find after a couple of days Venos does help to clear my chesty coughs up - it definately did last week. It doesn't get rid of it entirely but it does ease it off and turns it into a small every now and then cough. Venos for me does relieve the soreness a chesty cough can create. As I said previously, my family has been using it for years and swear by it. I definately recommend it.
