Simple Linctus Cough Syrup

Simple Linctus is a demulcent cough syrup used to treat dry, tickly coughs. The Citric Acid Monohydrate coats the throat in a calming, protective balm and cure irritation brought on by extreme coughing.

How effective is Simple Linctus?

Simple Linctus and Simple Linctus Sugar-Free are an inexpensive and harmless way to treat dry, irritating coughs. The oral solution works by coating the throat, and the Citric Acid Monohydrate reduces the urge to cough. The syrup coats the throat reducing the irritation from excessive coughing. It gets to work right after the first dosage.

How to take Simple Linctus?

Shake the bottle. Only use a medicine spoon, medicine cup or oral solution syringe. Do not use a kitchen teaspoon, this will not be suitable for measuring exact amounts and will result in over dosing. It is only intended to be taken orally, or by mouth.
