This is usually £3+ so a great deal imo.

Tixylix Chesty Cough contains an effective expectorant (Guaifenesin) that helps loosen phlegm and also help your child to breath more easily.
Its soothing formulation also helps to relieve a sore throat.When a cold virus attacks, your system produces more mucus than normal to fight the infection. The body tries to get rid of this excess phlegm by coughing.
Tixylix Chesty Cough has a pleasant blackcurrant flavour and is both sugar free and colour free. It does not cause drowsiness and comes with a measuring spoon for easy dosage control.

Grow up :thumbsup:

we never ever have cough syrup in the house, mainly cos it's useless.

always use (never failed..yet) a mixture of honey and fresh ginger. works WONDERS. honestly- esp on babies who cough and splutter and end up crying cos it disturbs their sleep etc- it tastes horrid, but a spoonful does the job.

There is absolutely no evidence that the active ingredient in this has the slightest effect. Cough medicines are there to amuse you while nature cures your infection. Save your pound!

you do know that you are not suppost to use cough medicines on children under 6 anymore? voted cold as its a waste of a pound IMO, let nature do its thing

Good price, bought some yesterday in Boots for over £3. Someone recently recommended giving my daughter honey but when I looked at bottle, honey shouldn't be given to children younger than a year. Supposedly to do with the bacteria that is present in honey.

yes.. but mums have been giving it to babies for centuries..
my mother gave it to me, i gave honey to my kids- i think such 'finds' are to put the scarers on..as if parents aren't nervous in the first place. my daughter got a terrible cough at abt 6months, i used the honey and ginger trick- though she gagged at the taste- she slept through the night without one splutter.. it worked miracles.

by the way- not attacking you, just expressing my view

Thank you

in chemist over christmas and was refused cough mixtures of any kind for my 2 boys, 4 yrs and 2 yrs. Not for "under 6yrs" even though i pointed out the age on box, was told old stock. So be aware if you are buying of shelf with no advice.

i used to work for a pharmaceutical manufacturer, we once found medicine that had been send for destruction being sold in a pound shop

although I'm sure this product will be fine, i'd only buy medicine for my kids from a major retailer

Hi , the guidelines have changed for under 6 yrs now and pharmacys are no longer allowed, by law, to sell any of the banned medicines over the counter. Also they should no longer be available to buy "off the shelf" in supermarkets or any other shops - they are breaking the law.

The current leaflet handed out by Boots is: pagb.co.uk/pre…pdf

So it's essentially back to basics.

Thanks all for your input, I so didn't know this! Such a shame poundland are breaking the law here. I will not be giving my little one this. Thanks again.

It's all about minimising risks though we've given all manner of things to babies in the past which have turned out to potentially do horrific things or be dangerous it's now proven honey for
As with everything comes down to personal choice but I know if anything happened and it turned out it was to do with something like that which i'd given them i'd never forgive myself.

Having said that IMHO the only thing that works on a problem with your lungs is something that gets into your lungs - some kind of menthol rub like Vicks or (and I love this stuff) Karvol and during the day inhalation of steam and menthol to loosen it up and help clear it up everything else just lessens symptoms and doesn't help treat

Please dont as you may kill him.
As mentioned above swallowing something down your oesophagus to cure an infection of the lung is madness. Are people really that ignorant of basic anatomy?
You may want to try and inhale the medicine so it gets to your bronchi but that has the undesirable side-effect of killing you.
Dont try the old wives tale approach either- we used blood-letting and leeches for centuries. Doesn't make them any good.
These medicines should be banned outright- cynical marketing con that they are

I'm a little concerned as new government guidelines issued a couple of months ago said this type of cold / cough medication could no longer be given to children under 6 years. I asked the pharmacist in asdfa about this too as this was still on shelves a few weeks ago. She confirmed that its right - it should no longer be given to children under 6 and bottles should be removed but that she only had responsibility for the pharmacy, the medicine on shelves should be removed by 'Asda'. So - Caution!!! great price but worth investigating first!!! (I have no idea what the problem was - just that guidelines had changed. I assume something must have gone wrong!:?
