I couldn't sleep one night due to constant coughing, so I took a trip to 7-11 hoping that they would have some sort of cough syrup or anything to help my cough and let me finally get some sleep before I had to get up for work in the morning. Thankfully they had some Buckley's cough syrup, I remembered those commercials and the line TASTES AWFUL BUT IT WORKS!
I picked up a bottle of their original mixture, sugar and alcohol free formula. It says it is great for effective relief of coughs, congestion due to cold, minor bronchial irritations, hoardeness, croupy cough and minor irritations due to smoking, dust or air pollution
The formula contains potassium bicarbonate, ammonium carbonate, menthol and camphor.
Yes this stuff does taste disgusting and that is putting it lightly! It tasted like how I imagine Vick's Vapour Rub would taste and probably does, it also smells like it! It comes in a thinner syrup liquid than other cough syrups, which helps to get it down faster!
I could feel it loosening up my chest and I really felt it in my chest! Immediately my cough was GONE! I was finally able to get a whole night's sleep, and did not wake up through the rest of the night due to coughing! The next day my chest wasn't tight and I barely had a cough! I will definately be keeping some of this on hand!
