The blackcurrant powder version is the best one I've found. the one you pour straight in rather than mix with water. Calpol rules as does bonjela :D

I would say lemon and honey.. but home made none of this lemsip rubbish..

get 2 lemons and some runny honey (manuka is good) and some hot water.. mix it together.. and add some sugar to taste.. :)

Or what you could do is mix hot water with ribena it tastes nice and it's been proven that drinking any kind of squash hot, helps ease the symtoms of a cold!

Just crush it up and shot it in... or take paracetemol before you have ya drink. I get special tea bags with natural stuff in like Echinecia and add them in... dunno how much it helps but makes ya feel good!

I totally agree, plus there is always the option of adding whisky!

Other option is Night Nurse, it should help knock you out tonight and sleep straight through.

Best not doing both at once though.

I had a deadline on a project and lemsip saved the day. I would not have got things done if I hadnt had some, however it did taste awful. If it tasted nice then it wouldnt do you any good, rule of thumb with medicines.
