Robitussin CoughGels Long-Acting (dextromethorphan) for Cough: "Every time there's a virus or allergies in the air due to having asthma I usually end up catching bronchitis from it and these by far are the only thing that really helps the coughing. Not to mention I've tried A LOT of other cough suppressants even prescriptions and these truly do help better than any I've found! I would definitely recommend trying them!"

Delsym (dextromethorphan) for Cough: "Helped a lot with the cough. if you take it without food it does give you that 'out of it' feeling. The downside was that it gave me terrible, super watery diarrhea."

Delsym (dextromethorphan) for Cough: "I was traveling and started having dry, allergy-related cough. Trying to suppress it long enough to give a presentation and Delsym worked perfectly. But as others noted, started to have diarrhea. I didn't connect it right away to Delsym, because when traveling everything is disrupted. Now home, everything had mostly cleared up and took the last dose last night, and sure enough diarrhea back today. I take no other meds."

Delsym (dextromethorphan) for Cough: "It definitely helps my cough. But it makes me so dizzy, I feel like my surroundings are going by at 100mph when I walk. I would NOT drive after taking it. I also feel a little "out of it", but that could just be having a sinus infection. I didn't have a problem with diarrhea like some people have mentioned."

For Cough: "I have had a non-productive cough for the last four months. I had two laryngoscopies which were both negative. My wife asked me to try this drug which as a physician I took reluctantly. My cough miraculously stopped after two hours. It has been 48 hours since my first and last dose and no cough. I cannot rule out a psychosomatic reaction. However I don't care I am no longer coughing!!"

Delsym (dextromethorphan) for Cough: "This medicine gave my 7 year old and his schoolmate a serious case of the Hives. If this happens to you, stop taking it and Benadryl will counteract the Hives."

For Cough: "My husband had a nasty cough for days that wouldn't go anyway and kept him up all night. He tried a couple different over the counter medicines but his cough increasingly got worse. Someone recommended Delsym which he tried and FINALLY he got the best night's sleep...not one coughing episode all night!! I would truly recommend to anyone who's sleep deprived with a nasty cough and worried spouse."

Delsym (dextromethorphan) for Cough: "Delsym is ok at cough suppression, depending on severity, but if you want to have hot liquid diarrhea all night within hours, then this is your medication. It sent me to the toilet faster than the laxatives you take the day before a colonoscopy. And it did not stop until 12 hours later. This is the single most poisonous substance I have ever ingested. "

Delsym (dextromethorphan) for Cough: "I had a long term chronic cough a few years back & was buying everything on the shelf, nothing worked. My hubby asked the Pharmacist what he would recommend & he said Delsym the orange stuff, thought it was expensive but bought it. I immediately stopped coughing. Well here I am coughing again for a long time & finally broke down & bought some, no more cough with one dose & may take a dose today. Thanks for this great product."

For Cough: "This medication didn't have an awful taste (I bought the liquid) and took care of my cough. Unfortunately, I had severe diarrhea and ended up having to take an anti-diarrheal. I probably won't use this medication again - the diarrhea was horrible! I would rather have a cough!"

Delsym (dextromethorphan) for Cough: "It did stop the cough, got up all the junk in my lungs and allowed me to continue my work day. However it gave me such terrible stomach pain I was very near calling it quits and going home. Taking a smaller dose with food made this problem much more tolerable, yet that burning feeling lingered for hours after."

Buckley's Mixture Cough Suppressant (dextromethorphan) for Cough: "Severe coughing and cold, tried other over the counter cough and cold products. The only product that really worked was Buckley Cough Mixture and I did not experience any side effects. I recommended it to many people and it worked for them. Now we can't find it anywhere. "
