Re: problems swallowing cough syrup
WanderingSoul, I know that you wrote this a while ago, but it will probably be a valid question for others out there. Cough syrup is horrid, there is NO doubt about it. I think that we can develop a gag reflex because we know how awful it tastes. My kids would rather cough than take it! Now, the best invention of the 21st century in my opinion are Robotussin Cough Gels. You just swallow two capsules and be done with it! There are also Theraflu cough strips, that don't taste quite as bad as the cough syrup. I knew from reading the ingredients in Tylenol Cold and Flu, and similar products, that the anti-cough ingredient in cough syrup could be packaged in capsule form, but for some reason, they NEVER made it alone, until the last two years or so! My youngest son won't even take the cough strips, so the cough gels are the greatest! Warning: They are a bit pricey, so shop online, or look for generic. Anyway they are worth whatever price (and I am a famous tightwad).
