Delsym (dextromethorphan) for Cough: "My six year old daughter is an asthmatic and the coughing she does while having a cold/flu tend to trigger it. I wanted to try a cough medicine just for bedtime to help her sleep comfortably without coughing spells. Sure enough Delsym did the trick! I had tried Mucinex and several others for children but felt they only made it worse. Within 35 min. The couching had stopped. I give Delsym an 8 out of 10 because it doesn't last the full 12 hours but close to it. My daughter had no side effects as far as bowel movements, gas, or hives. Just a cured cough"

For Cough: "I went to my dr yesterday n was diagnosed with severe bronchitis and was told this was a good med to take to alleviate my 'tight' breathing and coughing. My Dr suggested it for night time use. I took the recommended dose and it did great with the cough. However, I woke up a few hours later and felt my insides shaking like mad, having horrible stomach cramps like I was going to have diarrhea, it never really 'came about' but when I got up in the middle of the nite I hit a wall I was so dizzy. Never again. I get better results from other much cheaper products. So wanted to love this. I am a pharm tech and I have seen many people buy it. I thought I was just sensitive to the med because I am sensitive to meds sometimes."

Delsym (dextromethorphan) for Cough: "works great most of the time, only thing i can say is that it doesn't necessarily work for 12 hours but still gets the job done for half that time at least. Usually dims the coughing but doesnt stop it, buy cold medicine to treat the cold"

Delsym (dextromethorphan) for Cough: "I had purchased Delsym nighttime night strength for a cold the first night it worked great the second night I got the worst pain in my upper abs, than came nausea , followed by actually throwing up and a small bout of diarrhea. I am not sure if it was the lack of food contents in my stomach or what but it was a horrible experience"

Delsym (dextromethorphan) for Cough: "Been using this for about 7-8 years now. Unlike the sugar laced alcohol that is in most cough syrup, this stuff is the best. Takes about 45 min before it starts working, but after that, no more cough. In regards to diarrhea, no one in my family has had the experience described by some (or the same person posting over and over)"

Delsym 12 Hour Cough Relief (dextromethorphan) for Cough: "I have a chronic cough for 2 months from allergies that turned to a bronchitis/asthma thing. On other inhalers and allergy medicines and took Delsym, because the cough wouldn't stop. Soothed the cough a little so I could get some phlegm out. Thinking next dose would do the trick, but 8 hours after the first dose I had bad gassy poops! Don't think I will take the second dose"

Delsym (dextromethorphan) for Cough: "Gave this high priced, 12 hour cough "suppressant" in the kiddie version, to my 6 year old. The only thing it suppressed, was his ability to sleep. Worse product I've ever purchased for him."

Delsym (dextromethorphan) for Cough: "Stopped the cough, but jump started my bowels. Took it before bed and spent the morning on the toilet. All I had before was a cough, now I can't leave the house. Wish I could charge them for a sick day. On the upside: I'm just one dose of Delsym from my goal weight!"

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."
