  • You may need to see the Dr for a prescription strength one. Guaifenesin is the ingredient your looking for in a cough syrup.

  • Only kind that has helped me is the prescription ones like Tussinex or Robitussin with Codeine. Tessalon Perles also help. But nothing OTC really helps when I have a cough.
