What works better for colds and coughs?

My son will be 9 in March and now he is really starting to give me a hard time about the taste of the medicine in liquid form. I told him I would buy him pills next time my husband disagrees said they don't work fast enough. What do most 9 year olds take?

  • Chewables do work quickly. The strips do too.

  • Thanks to everyone. He is now at the age where he can make his own decisions. It is hard watching that happen.
