Are you feeling a little under the weather? Is that constant cough or sore throat annoying?

Our Recommendation:

Hy-Vee® Sugar-Free Cough Drops

How Can It Help?

  • Temporarily relieves cough symptoms, minor irritation and sore throat due to the common cold and flu.
  • The active ingredient, menthol, acts as a pain reliever and numbing agent, which gives temporary relief of that painful and bothersome sore throat.

How Should It Be Taken?Hy-Vee Pharmacists Pick - Hy-Vee Cough Drops

Adults and children 5 years of age and older:
Dissolve 1 cough drop slowly in mouth. Repeat every two hours as needed or as directed. Ask a doctor for children under the age of 5.

Important Considerations:

  • Cough drops have a sweet taste, so children can mistake them for candy; always keep out of reach of children.
  • Contact your doctor if your cough does not improve after 7 days or for a severe sore throat lasting longer than 2 days.
  • Ask your doctor before using if you have a sore throat with fever, headache, swelling, nausea or vomiting, if your cough is associated with COPD or other respiratory conditions, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Don't forget to get your flu shot this season!
