A: A lingering cough is the worst. Just at the time you think you should be feeling better, the cough takes away any energy you have.
This is the time to pull out Stop The Cough. It will stop the coughing spasms and start loosening up the phlegm within a day or two. You will never need the whole bottle.
Stop the Cough is a mild mucolytic. Mucolytics break down the mucus and make it a thinner fluid so it can be more easily expelled with coughing.
It is also an anttussive. Antitussives (cough suppressants) relax the respiratory system and the blood pressure and then the coughing reflex relaxes and stops.
You will only need one bottle. Take more than the bottle recommends. You can either take 3 capsules 3 times a day or 5 capsules twice a day. Drink lots of hot drinks. Drinking some plain hot water will also speed things up. Within 1-2 days you will immediately see the coughing is less and the lungs feel more relaxed. It is a magic formula for this situation.
