I have had a cough for a few days now, and have been using Delsym as directed, but it has not helped. I might also am starting to come down with a cold. I do not know if it would be better to take Dayqyill/Niquill or to look for a different medicine to help my couch. I do not want to take cold tablets too early, as I could be mistaking cold symptoms for seasonal allergies.
Try CEPACOL —the one with benzocaine AND the “dm” cough suppressant. The former works well to help the tickle and kind of numb your throat, and the latter suppresses the cough reflex, since it has a smaller amount of the same suppressant that Delsym has, and that way, you can take it more often and not worry about overdosing.
I find that 2 of these drops(one followed by a second)does the job pretty well.
Let me know how it works for you!!—
