In my wellness kit, Robitussin® 12 Hour Cough Relief helps me take back my day (or night) by taking a dose* that will last. Whether it's knocking out the cough for a proper night or quiet, or taking it out so I can properly speak (or remain silent) during the course of the daylight hours, the extended-release action of Robitussin is appreciated.
Because I'm my own boss (for the most part), I don't get a "sick day." After all, even if I did, who really wants to be held hostage by a cough or cold? Certainly not me.
*10 mL every 12 hours, not to exceed 20 mL in 24 hours. Available in Orange and Grape Flavored Liquid. Check out Robitussin.com for more.
