Review: Boiron’s Stodal Cough Medicine


Review: Boiron’s Stodal Cough Medicine

February 15, 2016

It’s cough & cold season again! Have you ever googled “how to naturally get rid of cold”? The answers are:

  • Wait for it to go away on it’s own in 4-7 days
  • Lots of hand-washing
  • Drink warm liquids
  • Take a steamy shower
  • Oil Pulling (I had to look this one up – swish a tablespoon of oil in your mouth for at least one minute

Well, I have a 3 and 4 year old and for me, none of those answers are going to cut-it at 2:00am when they are awake because they can’t stop coughing! STODAL-CHILDREN-HONEY-125ML-RIGHT-EN-HR

I started using Stodal Honey after I received a sample in my first Mommy Connections Tots class and we have been buying it since. The best part of Stodal Honey is that it tastes great, as it is a honey-based syrup. There’s not much worse then fighting with a tired toddler in the middle of the night because the cough syrup you gave them tastes gross, or even worse when you give it to them and they spit most of it out, then you don’t know how much to give them as you can’t tell how much they’ve already ingested!

Children’s Stodal Honey cough syrup relieves both dry and wet coughs and is intended for children 1 to 11 years of age. After about 2 days of giving my kids the recommended teaspoon – 3 times a day, their cough’s are usually cleared up and it does not make them drowsy during the day so we can continue on our activities as usual.

STODAL-ADULTS-CC-200ML-EN-135x300Boiron also makes Stodal Cold & Cough for a runny nose, sneezing, nasal congestion, cough, chest congestion and a sore throat. This is for adults and children as young as 1 and is also a non-drowsy medicine. I tried this for the time this morning as I have a mild sore throat. The taste isn’t too bad and it provided almost instant relief for my sore throat. For adults Boiron recommends taking it 3-5 times a day, (3 times a day for children). I am the type to take 1/2 a Nyquil dose and have that dreaded “Nyquil Hangover” for 2 days straight so I was very happy to try this out and not feel light-headed at all.

We have been fortunate so far not to need the Oscillococcinum, which is for flu-like symptoms including body-aches, headaches, fever and chills – but I would certainly use it if the flu arises in our house after seeing how well both of the Stodal cough syrups worked for us. Oscillococcinum is for all ages, babies to adults and also claims to be non-drowsy.OSCILLO-ADULTS-6D-EN1
