I took great care in formulating this syrup for you. This one is for your average cough. It could be wet or dry, and it can come during or even after an average cold. It might come from cold weather, or the dry air that accompanies being stuck indoors with forced-air heat. It might accompany your spring allergies. It's annoying, and on the verge of becoming chronic. This syrup is good for the coughs of your little ones. It will help them (and you) get the rest we all need in order to heal/stay sane.
