USER REVIEWS: Prospan Cough Medicine

Clinically proven for chesty coughs.

Prospan is a clinically proven cough medicine that is suitable for chesty and bronchial coughs. Made in Germany and distributed worldwide, Prospan has been subject to rigorous clinical testing* in both adults and children. Manufactured by Engelhard Arzneitmittel

Prospan’s powerful active ingredient, hedera helix has a special two-fold action to help relieve and ease coughing. Prospan Expectorant has a non-drowsy, sugar-free, gluten-free and alcohol-free formula and even the fussiest children will like the pleasant taste of it.

With this powerful cough medicine, you only need half the dosage of most other cough medicines. So instead of a standard adult dose (up to 15ml three times a day), you only need 5ml of Prospan Expectorant three times a day. The dosage for children is also much lower, making it even easier for little ones to swallow! For more details about Prospan Expectorant’s Dosage Guidelines, please see below.
