Reviews for Ephedrine/guaifenesin
Primatene (ephedrine / guaifenesin) for Cold Symptoms: "I caught the flu a month ago which eventually turned into breathing difficulties and a never ending cough which is not good as I am a professional Singer ! I tried all the cough meds and syrups The cough would not relent ! Then I remembered about Primatene as I seemed to have all the symptoms of previous asthma attacks I had had Within two to three days of taking primatene the endless cough and wheezing has nearly completely stopped. I actually performed tonight for the first time without the continued feeling I have to cough ! It’s done wonders and I highly recommend it It truly truly has helped me to recover from the worst case of flu !"

Primatene (ephedrine / guaifenesin) for Cold Symptoms: "I had shortness of breathe for 2 days. I'm not the type to sit in the emergency room over ever cut and scrape. So I looked for something to help me breathe. I went to the Walgreens and the pharmacy suggested primatene. ITS AMAZING!"

Bronkaid (ephedrine / guaifenesin) for Cold Symptoms: "Couldn't breath and Doctor wasn't open. This medicine helped me breath again in minutes :). Reason I couldn't breath is complications from upper respiratory infection. So happy pharmacy suggested this."

Bronkaid (ephedrine / guaifenesin) for Cold Symptoms: "First time user. Was having a slight deep cough, which alone would've been fine but it was accompanied with shortness of breath, wheezing and tightness in my chest (common asthma symptoms). I haven't had this problem in years so I asked a pharmacist. She recommended this and one dose made a huge difference. The tightness went away and the breathing got so much better. Even the slight cough was productive now. Definitely recommend this to anyone with the same symptoms."

For Cold Symptoms: "This is a better cold and cough medicine combination than the others. I have been using it for about 5 years, but only when I get a cold and once in awhile. Also for shortness of breath since a cold triggers my very low grade asthma/bronchitis symptoms. Ask your doctor before taking this medicine."

Primatene (ephedrine / guaifenesin) for Cold Symptoms: "I have had a horrible cold with terrible coughs and unable to rest much. Mucus and stuffy/runny nose too. I took only one tablet and it works better than the cold/flu medicine I have been taking for a week. I can breathe better and my lungs feel much more free to breathe. Thanks!"
