Triaminic Throat Pain & Cough

Pros:Liquid form & chewable form both taste great. Works Great.

Cons:None

The Bottom Line: I recommend Triaminic Throat Pain & Cough Softchews for kids & liquids for the adults. Doesn't work if they will not take it!


Doesn't work if you can't get them to take it ! Well, we have the liquid form for my husband and I, and the chewables for the kids. The chewables have been tested by me when I got sick, and had finished off the liquid version. They are delicious, but too expensive for adults to take.

I will be discussing both, and will have the information on both. Only one set of information is given for general info, and for the warnings since they are both the same.

Triaminic Throat Pain & Cough tastes and works great. Both versions start working within 30 minutes. Great grape flavor. Smells like grape Kool-Aid. This Triaminic eases sore throat pain, quiets coughs, clears stuffy heads, and reduces fever. It seems to work faster for my youngest, Cody who is now 3. But starts working about 30 minutes for the rest of us.

Provides effective, symptom specific relief for your family. Softchews are great for children because there is no measuring, no dosage cups, or teaspoons needed just easy dose chewable tablets. Softchews dissolve quickly in your childs mouth and taste great.

The liquid form comes in a 4 ounce and an 8 ounce. The softchews only come in an 18 pack. {the only ones I have ever found} My pediatrician recommended this brand and type when we were on vacation, and thank God for 24 hour Thrifty. Never saw one open 24 hours before, nor have I seen it again, since Rite-Aid pretty well took over.

Warnings: (same for both versions}
