My husband and daughter have cough at the moment and they sound weird. The doctor prescribed Robitussin (Guaifenesin) to loosen and releive their chest congestion due to cough.
I feel so bad seeing them cough like barking dogs and I know how painful it gets in the throat and chest. I had been sick too few years ago and I learned to care for myself better and effectively now. Early signs of catching fever, cough and colds are dealt with seriously now in our household. We just want to be very cautious with all these weird viruses floating everywhere.
Robitussin is an alcohol-free cough formula which is good for both children and adult. It comes in 4 fl oz or 118 ml plastic bottle with a twist cap and a small measuring cup.
The cough syrup does not have any drowsy effect at all which is really good because my husband drives around and concentration and alertness in his line of work is also required. It is also non-narcotic and will not leave you feeling hooked or doped.
Dosage can be administered for both adult and children with adult getting at least 2-4 teaspoonfuls every 4 hours and children with 1-2 teaspoonfuls every 4 hours.
The effect is evident after few days within a week depending on how bad the cough is. Of course, on the onset, you should have yourself checked right away before the cough leads to something terrible.
I have entrusted my family with Robitussin's effective expectorant power without leaving us groggy.
