    Vicks 44 Dry Cough Gets the Problem Under Control

    By 

    from Houston, TX

    Comments about Vicks Formula 44 Custom Care Dry Cough Suppressant:

    A dry, hacking cough can disrupt an otherwise normal day and it can greatly interfere with getting a good nights’ sleep. That is why it is so important to eliminate the coughing as quickly as possible and one good option is **Vicks 44 Dry Cough Relief.**

    ** **

    **Medicine Commentary:**



    Vicks 44 Dry Cough Relief is a liquid cough suppresent that contains the active ingredient Dextromethorphan HBr (30mg), which is utilized as a cough suppressant. One tablespoon is the standard dose and it is good for four hours of relief.



    Vicks 44 Dry Cough Relief is a useful medication that helps to control coughing and it is one of several medicines I have used over the past couple of decades. A dry cough is most unpleasant- even worse than a bad case of congestion or other cold- related symptom. Anything that can help get this problem under control is worth using and Vicks 44 Dry Cough Relief is very effective at this purpose. Its thick, berry- flavored liquid coats the throat and helps to eliminate the scratchiness that leads to persistent coughing.



    Vicks 44 Dry Cough Relief is a good product overall, but it does have a few drawbacks, among them the product’s use of high fructose corn syrup and the short duration of relief. An individual dose is only good for four hours of relief so you may find yourself waking up in the middle of the night to take another dose.



    **Bottom- Line Viewpoint:**

    ** **

    Coughing is an extreme annoyance and anything that can help get the problem under control is worth consideration. Vicks 44 Dry Cough Relief is good in this capacity, helping to coat and soothe the throat so that coughing is lessened. It does have a few drawbacks, but it is still a good product for relief from a dry, hacking cough.

    Coughfree

    Comments about Vicks Formula 44 Custom Care Dry Cough Suppressant:

    For the past 4 months my four year old has been bring me home colds. I first started to use Vicks 44 when the Pharmacist recommended that I gave it a try. This product subsided my cough and left me feeling as though I never had a cough to begin with. The only thing was that I was a little bit drowsy so I took a nap. I woke up refreshed and breathing.

    Vick's Dry Cough leaves you cough free and refreshed!

    By 

    from Nashville, IN

    Comments about Vicks Formula 44 Custom Care Dry Cough Suppressant:

    I love Vick's Dry Cough when I am feeling sick. Don't get me wrong, this is cough syrup and should be taken responsibly. However when you do have that pesky cough and sore  throat but do not seem to be coughing anything up then this cough syrup is for you. As soon as you take it you immediately feel the cooling sensation down your throat. It numbs it somewhat so it immediately feels better. You do immediately stop coughing as well. I was skeptical when I first deicded to use it, but I was desperate to stop coughing and to get rid on my sore throat so I gave it a try. I was so pleasantly suprised when it immediately started working! I felt better immediately and was able to get back to my life. Now, it is the first product I turn to when I get a sore throat or pesky cough. So, if you are suffering from a dry cough and/or sore throat I highly recommend you take some Vick's Dry cough to immediately feel better!
