Took a dose after dinner, seems to be having less ahem.
Sleeping in air conditioned room tonight to test out.


MP,
I took Robitussin (red label).
There is a blue label that is a phlegm expectorant cum decongestant for blocked nose.
I paid $9.90 at a Guardian Pharmacy when I bought a second bottle.
Can't recall how much I paid for the first bottle at Unity.
Ah boy n I took this medicine together.
He also saw improvement, in fact he recovered faster than me.

Just make sure you take the right kind of cough medicine - Robitussin has different types for different kinds of cough. If you take the wrong kind (eg. dry cough, but take expectorant), it can make you cough more.

For that horrible clogged-up experience that your son described, I take promethazine (sold under the brand name Rinathiol) which works for me. It's an allergy medication and can cause drowsiness though, so I usually take it at night so I can breathe and sleep.

Honey helps make it easier to expel phlegm. It doesnt have to be manuka, even normal honey is good .The trick is to coat the throat with honey right before bedtime.

Get well soon .


Any idea why honey may help to expel phlegm ? ds is having lil bit of such cough now.
I thought sweet stuff may induce more phlegm production ?


Sorry, just saw this,

You are right, the honey is to prevent drying of the throat so it is easier to expel phlegm. And like Jen mentioned , if one has been coughing a lot, it does cause abrasions on the throat, honey will help heal it faster. So ordinary honey will do.
Traditionally honey is said to be neutral /cooling for the body and is supposed to reduce the formation of phlegm , I cant vouch for it .
Personal experience is taking honey is a boon when having sore throat and have that really dreadful itchy throat morning when I wake up. So take honey early in the morning(3-4 am) and go back to sleep. Then morning the throat is tolerable. I just feel it prevents worsening of the sore throat.

One doubt for those who take honey especially manuka before bedtime for sore throat. If you do salt water gargle then what is the order? I do gargle, and 30 mins later take honey. Not sure if I am doing it right...

Jen, sorry, taking up space in your home :oops:

Jen, you remind me of something a friend said to me - the lines on the face are the love that we share.

I am guessing Elder boy is the one you are referring to?

Seems he is your 'stabiliser' or 'equilibrium'.
