Plead nicely with doc for 100ml bottle of 15mg liquid codine, I was in agony with a cough two months ago, pulled muscles in tum & back & couldn't sleep at all, but this for a week put me right

Hope you get it cleared up soon

Old remedy for tickly cough - can't do any harm anyway , so worth a try -: cover some humbugs with vinegar and leave to dissolve - take spoonful as required. Hope it helps :)


Thanks Wishoz,worth a try :)
