Obviously you want to cut this torture as short as possible, but turning to cough medicine might not be the answer. Instead, you should be looking to booze. The YouTube channel Reactions breaks down every active ingredient in standard cough syrups, going over their purpose but questions their effectiveness. The team behind this science-driven series also looked at 19 different studies to find that 15 of them either stated the medicine resulted in no benefit or the results were conflicting.
