"I have had a heinous cough for a week now... where i have uncontrollable fits of coughing where I can not stop. My chemist told me that 30mg of codeine usually stops a cough dead in its tracks. This is because it affects the part of the brain that makes you want to cough. It works great to stop coughing so I can rest, but please remember CODEINE DOES NOT TREAT THE CAUSE OF THE COUGH. He thinks I may have a chest infection so I will still need to go to the doctors on Monday and treat the infection as well."

"Great for cough and throat pain. Nothing else would work, I was literally sleeping sitting up before I filled this medication. Promethazine with codeine. I was able to eat and drink, sleep, and go back to work. Helped a lot."

"Don't think it did much for the cough. Made me nauseated. Fell asleep for awhile and was kind of awake and was hearing voices than i had some creepy dreams. Probably the last time I try this..."

"I have use this 4 different times over a period of 7 years when I had such a bad cough that I couldn't sleep for days. As a tip start out slow just enough to get some rest. My prescription says 5 to 10ml I take under 5 ml twice a night once it wears off normally at 1am and it works great. I normally only need to take this two nights in a row and my cough is pretty much gone. So I avoid any dependency issues. I don't advice taking it during the day unless your home all day and you don't need to leave. It'll make you very sleepy."

"This medicine worked on my cough but gave me such a bad sunburn even with protection on that I will not use it. Be careful and take the warning labels seriously."

"It's amazing how this drug works on the brain to stop cough. It's the only thing that works for me when I get a chronic cough."

"Yes it is very effective but has serious side effects like abnormal, fast heart beating and vomiting if its uses against cough regularly or overdose. It must be used very few as possible. It is extremely dangerous to use this with doctor control."

"I swear this is a placebo, did nothing for the pain in my back, chest, and throat, and barely anything for cough. Very disappointing..."

"It is ineffectual. My muscles ache from the wretched coughing. It is functionally a placebo."

"Couldn't sleep due to horrid cough and respiratory infection. Doctor prescribed Z PAC and this cough syrup. About 1/2 after taking it cough stopped for the first time. It did not put me to sleep. But it did help the cough."

"5 days no sleep due to horrible cough. I was very excited to try this. It seems to have made my cough worse or at least didn't help at all. Got extremely drowsy, so fought a hacking cough while fighting to stay awake. Miserable night!"

"Helped a lot with my cough, did make me quite drowsy during daytime hours so beware. After taking for several days as prescribed coming off of it has made me quite dizzy and generally not feeling great, might be a part of the controlled element of it. For me, definitely worth the other stuff, really good for calming my cough."

"I had upper respiratory infection along with a runny nose and a throat infection. This medicine does its miracles. For 2 nights I wasn't able to sleep and I tried over the counter meds however nothing made it better. After I saw my doctor he prescribed me this syrup along with amoxicilin and wow I must say I slept amazingly great and woke up feeling much better. I only took the syrup at night since its not recommended to drive or to use at work. I don't abuse of it, I only took 1 tsp at night with some Sprite for 3 days and my cough got better day by day. This medicine will put you to sleep and it will stop the urge of coughing. Only use at home before bed."

"Have been taking this medication for 2 days for cough associated with upper respiratory infection. It does make me sleepy but does not alleviate my cough. Unfortunately, still up 2-3 times during the night violently coughing."
