I Hate Cough Medicine

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 17 People


    I hate cough medicine, I hate the way it taste, the way it makes me feel. Sure it stops the cough, but it makes me have such a bad headache. I don't like it at all! BroknWings

    Sooo Nasty

     I refuse to use cough syrup. It makes me gag, and I have to make a concentrated effort not to toss my cookies for 5 minutes after I take it. Therefore, I just cough my lungs out or make due with Luden's cough drops. Much more preferable, in my opinion. ~Jennie

    No, cough syrup, you don't taste like grapes.

    Have you ever tasted grapes!?! You taste more like death and the tears of small children mixed. NOT grapes.

    Cough medicine is disgusting, revolting, and all around terrible. I haven't had it since I was little. I might have had it 2 or 3 times, and then refused to take anymore. I didn't care how much I coughed, I was happy not to take that stuff. Blegh!!!

    Also Liquid Antibiotic

    I had a chest infection in January I can not swallow pills so had an antibiotic as a liquid. Its pink but tastes of banana's and it feels like liquid chalk and swallowing it well put it this way if it happens again I will see if I can manage the pills instead. It was horrible.
