I've had a cold thing that's dragged on and am in the tickly cough phase. I very rarely get a cough and haven't taken anything for years but as this is keeping me awake I thought I'd risk a medication. The pharmacist recommended pholcodine. I was a bit wary but tried two doses last night. I think it was a huge mistake as have such severe abdominal pain today. I looked it up after I'd taken it. A bit silly but there you go. I think everything in it is a no-no. Anyone else had experience with it or found an OK cough soother. Many thanks, sue.
