Pros: Good taste; Plastic spoon included; good relief
Cons: Each dose good for only 4 hours.
Cold and allergy seasons can really wreck havoc on young children, causing them to cough with that deep, chest- oriented hack that is indicative of excess mucus. Medicines specially made for children exist in most every drug aisle and one brand my kids have tried and liked is Similason Cold & Mucus Relief Cough Expectorant Syrup, a sweet, fruity liquid for fighting mucus and related problems.

I have two little girls and they have been forced to take allergy medicine for a couple of years now. Unfortunately, for my girls, it appears they have both inherited my problems with allergies and sinus and they will have to deal with coughing, congestion, and related symptoms for the rest of their lives. They consume some of these medicines on a regular basis and this frequency of use is what led us to purchase Similason Cold & Mucus Relief Cough Expectorant Syrup. It is an all- natural product and is thus safer to use over an extended period.
So, this product is safe but what about its effectiveness? Well, our experience with Similason Cold & Mucus Relief Cough Expectorant Syrup has been positive. This liquid goes to work quickly and helps to break up mucus in the chest and throat, making it easier for kids to cough up the mucus and eliminate the rough, scratchy sound that comes from their chest each time they cough. After a few hours, there is a noticeable difference so the product earns good marks in this respect.
Kids often do not like to take medicines, but they should have no problem taking Similason Cold & Mucus Relief Cough Expectorant Syrup. This product is liquid in form and fruity in taste. It is slightly sweet, so most kids will like the flavor and have no problem swallowing the proper dose. Similasan includes a small, two- sided measuring spoon for consumer convenience and most kids will have no issues at all taking this medication.
Similason Cold & Mucus Relief Cough Expectorant Syrup is good and safe for kids. It can even be taken by adults (which I have done a few times) who suffer from allergy problems and do not have an adult- strength allergy medicine available. This product is certainly no match for Zyrtec, but it does help in a pinch. I can sense some relief from my mucus and other symptoms when I take this product, but it often must be accompanied with a quick second dose if I want more thorough relief. Even for kids, a second dose is often needed, mainly because each dose is good for only two hours of relief.
Overall, Similason Cold & Mucus Relief Cough Expectorant Syrup is a good product for kids. It helps to break up chest congestion and mucus, eliminating the nasty cough often associated with allergy problems.
