Also comes in syrup form. And it's also pinkish in color. Apparently, in the hospital, they would ask you first if you prefer the tablets or the syrup.
Note: This medication is intended for adults only. I believe the government hospital here also dispenses a similarly named medication for children in the form of a yellow syrup. So, it's quite a different thing in terms of strength, I believe.
Results: Very efficient in unblocking the nose, especially when you find it hard to breathe and your nose is completely stuffed up, or when your nose keeps dripping. It dries up the nose, so there are no drips or mucus to deal with. Will take about 15-20 minutes for it to take effect. Will last a couple of hours, so if you feel your nose getting blocked again, you can retake it. However, it causes extreme drowsiness. So I only take this when I'm about to go to sleep. It has a very bitter taste once it touches your tongue, so get that cup of water ready.
A handy medication to have around, in case someone feels like they are coming down with the cold. Just take one of these immediately and if you're lucky, the cold would not even materialize.
I bought these in Guardian in Miri, so they came in these little tablet sheets. The tablets are exactly the same as the ones they dispense at the government hospitals here.
The dosage written at the back. According to the pharmacist in Guardian, you just need one at a time.
Price: RM3.30 per sheet of 10 tablets from Guardian Parkson in Miri. Or you can request for it at the government hospital here.
Would I buy it again? Yes. If I go Miri again, I will stock up on it because sometimes I'm just too lazy to go queue up at the government hospital here just to wait for my meds. And sometimes they would only give 10 tablets or if they are nice enough and you ask for another pack, they might give 20.
Rating: 9/10 (point deducted for the drowsiness factor)
PRECAUTION: As with all medications, please consult your doctor before use.
