For Cough: “I have been prescribed the benzonate pearls before and they helped. That was for an upper respiratory infection. But this time I had strep throat and then a week later started with this terrible cough, for me I have to say this time it hasn’t really helped at all. Only makes my throat very dry and makes me cough to the point I feel like I am drowning in my own mucus. I’m also using abuteral inhaler every 6 hrs as needed and it’s needed.Why don’t they prescribe the purple cough medicine anymore. Had this cough for a week been on medicine 4 days I am over it. I’m ready to change doctors”

Tessalon Perles (benzonatate) for Cough: “Have been given these for a horrid cough. They don’t really do much except make me sleepy. The cough is still there. Makes me miss being in Australia where I could get codeine cough syrup over the counter if I needed it.”

For Cough: “Ok so yeah this last Saturday I woke up with a sore throat, Sunday it turns into a bad cough ( almost like bronchitis sounding ) and Monday I woke up with a headache. I went to dialysis on Monday and luckily my doctor was there. He listened to my lungs and said they sounded “chunky” he prescribed these pills to me. Plus the antibiotic Doxycycline monohydrate. The Benzonatate pearl I took one earlier in the evening and then my second dose when I was going to bed. Still have that Damn cough! After I finish this prescription I’m not taking it anymore.”

For Cough: “Did not work at all for me. It did not make the cough worse, but it, certainly, did not lessen it either.”

For Cough: “This pill has helped me considerably. I just took a pill about an hour ago and controlled my cough for now. Well see what happens.”
