  • Marina, 33 years old: "As an independent drug, I did not take dry cough syrup for children, but after having had pneumonia it was prescribed as an additional remedy. Personally for me, "pleasant anise smell" is not very impressive, but this is probably the only claim to the drug. With a cough he coped with a solid "four", and given its cost, it is impossible to desire more. To my children, I sometimes buy it instead of synthetic cough syrups. They drink it quite willingly, and the action is especially effective if one catches a cold at the beginning of development. "
  • Olga, 24 years old: "For the first time, I was hospitalized with a child just before my first birthday. Complex bronchitis, which he could not cure at home. After a course of two antibiotics, we returned home, but continued to take the medicine prescribed by the doctor. One of them was dry cough syrup. At first, I was skeptical and wanted to buy another drug( more expensive, and, therefore, more effective).The pharmacist dissuaded, saying that practically the whole composition is natural, and we took enough chemistry in the hospital. In general, we bought this medicine and thanks to it completely got rid of a cough. The little son at first did not drink it very willingly, but then got used to it and opened the mouth itself. Now in the home medicine chest just in case there are a few sachets, let's not be useful ".
  • Svetlana, 36 years old: "I myself am a doctor, although not a pulmonological profile. I often come across the opinion of patients when they perceive affordable medicine as obviously ineffective. This is fundamentally wrong, many expensive and "effective" drugs actually have significantly cheaper analogues with a virtually identical composition. Dry cough medicine is a proven remedy that has a good mucilage effect. Pneumonia or strong bronchitis to treat it, I would not advise, but that's to remove the residual effects or cope with ARVI or a slight cold is quite possible. "
