Read The Fine Print

You know how a hacking cough sort of convulses everything and makes you flail around grasping for relief?  Well, I got bounced out of bed by it, stumbled to the medicine drawer, grabbed the plastic bag and started sucking with relief on a lozenge. At some point yesterday it occurred to me that they didn't have that characteristic eucalyptus coolness and actually looked at the bag.


Oh, well, they stopped the tickling.  Then I read the fine print on the back.


Oh, good. Glad to know that one's vitamin C levels will remain good while you've got the trots.

  1. I've always had success with the zinc lozenges on the few occasions that I come down with a cold.

  4. We are like Bob...we use elderberry and zinc drops and they work fantastic! Labels actually are like reading horror stories when you get to the nitty gritty!

    1. Yeah, I didn't care for the list of chemicals, including artificial sweeteners. To have to choose between a cough and the runs seems unhealthy. I'm becoming less and less inclined to eat processed foods except in an emergency.
