Pros: Works quickly and efficiently
Cons: Have had problems finding it in the stores recently.
Hold cough drops with dextromethorphan (spelling?) are the best in controlling that dry, hacking cough that comes after a tough cold. I used to use Cough Control Sucrets, but many years ago they stopped manufacturing them. Hold is very similar and stops that tough cough that occurs while sleeping at night. I would highly recommend them.
