Sorry, no idea!  Has Lemsip got caffeine in it?

Try hot squash with honey (not quite in the same league as drugs, I know but might help a tiny bit!!)

Hi,
I'm not an expert but I would avoid lemsip because I think it has a stimulant drug in it - ephedrine or something like that.  You are ok to take paracetamol though.  Hot lemon and honey drinks are great for a cold.

Hope you're feeling better soon

Hiya firstly shouldnt take lemsip and calpol together as both contains paracetamol - whether having tx or not

safest thing to take is paracetamol just on its own as though you are preggers - honey and lemon as the girls above has said is fine for a sore throat

becareful with lozengers too - try ordinary cherry drops or barley sugar sweets instead

get well soon

I just spoke to my gynae today as I also have a bad cough and cold, wanted to know if it would affect the drugs I am taking (puregone).  I was told it was ok, it is after ET that they worry about what you take.

Hello
A question also on a similar thread. Can you take asprin for headaches due to downregulating, I have taken some now I am worried. What painkillers should you take or avoid
