Can I take Buttercup cough mixture when I’m pregnant?

Buttercup cough mixture is not suitable for use during your pregnancy or while you’re breastfeeding.


The syrup contains alcohol, which is not safe to have during pregnancy as it can risk long-term harm to your baby.


If you’re suffering from a cough or cold during your pregnancy we’d recommend asking your doctor or pharmacist to recommend a more suitable treatment for you.

Can I take paracetamol and Buttercup cough syrup at the same time?

Buttercup syrup is not known to interact with paracetamol, so you should be able to take both of them at the same time to ease your cold symptoms.


However, you should always speak to your doctor or pharmacist before taking any medications at the same time, just to be sure that the combination is right for you.

Should I use Buttercup or Bronchostop?

Buttercup and Bronchostop are both herbal cough remedies, but there are some differences you should be aware of when choosing the right one for you.


Buttercup syrup is a traditionally used cough remedy which may also help to soothe a sore throat or cold symptoms.


On the other hand, Bronchostop syrup is a traditional remedy for coughs alone and isn’t thought to ease sore throats or cold symptoms.


Both remedies use different natural ingredients traditionally used to ease your symptoms, so the biggest consideration will be what you plan on using your medicine for.


If you’re unsure, ask your doctor or pharmacist to help you choose the right product for you.

Is Bronchostop gluten-free?

Bronchostop pastilles and syrup are both gluten-free and are not exposed to gluten at any part of the manufacturing process.

What is the best medicine for treating a cough?

The best treatment for treating a cough is dependent on the type of cough that you have. If you have a dry or tickly cough then the medication that you should use will be different than the one you should use for a chesty or mucus cough.

Are there any home remedies for a dry cough?

There are a couple of things you can do at home to help ease your dry cough, and they can be done at the same time as taking your cough syrup.


We recommend getting plenty of rest when you have a cough, as it’s often caused by a cold or the flu or another infection which all need some serious rest if you’re going to get over them as soon as possible.


You should also drink plenty of fluids, as this will help to keep the back of your poor irritated throat hydrated.


We’d also recommend trying a hot honey and lemon drink, which may help to soothe your throat and make that cough a little better.

Are there any home remedies for coughs in toddlers?

If your toddler has a cough that’s making them grumpy, the best thing you can do for them is to make sure they get lots of rest and drink plenty of fluids.



If your little one is over a year old then a hot honey and lemon drink may also help them to feel a bit better, but make sure to check the temperature of the drink carefully and monitor any young children who are given hot drinks.

Which dry cough remedy is suitable for children?

Dry cough medicines are available for children aged 3 months and over.


These cough medicines often contain an ingredient called glycerin or glycerol, which coats the back of the throat, soothing and lubricating the area and reducing your little one’s dry cough in the process.


Glycerin cough medicines are available from popular brands like Benylin, CalCough, and Tixylix, so you’ll be sure to find one that’s right for your child.


If you’re not sure which cough syrup will be suitable for your child for any reason, ask your doctor or pharmacist for some advice.

How do sore throat treatments work?

Depending on the treatment that you use, there will be different active ingredients that have different properties.


The main properties of sore throat treatments will either be a painkiller (known as an analgesic) or as an anaesthetic, which numbs the throat area.
