If you are pregnant or breastfeeding it is always a good idea to check with a doctor before taking any medicines.
It is recommended that you do not drive or opperate heavy machinery while taking these tablets.
What did I think?
I swear by these tablets. I usually use Lemisip however I use these when I feel my cold has gone too far for simply using Lemsip but not far enough to see a doctor. I find after taking these pills for a day or so I begin to feel some bit human again and I would certainly recommend tham to anyone suffering with flu symptoms who can take this sort of medication. They did not make me feel drowsy and I think at £4 for a pack of 24 it is fairly good value.
For the relief of symptoms associated with colds and flu including coughing, fever, headache, muscular aches and pains and congestion.
