As per title BUT the following criteria must be met:

- can't be medicines etc. that contain alcohol (very important)
- must be low on sugar
- can't contain Aspartame/Nutrasweet sweetner


Open to alternative suggestion such as playing bagpipes on a pogostick or any such thing.

I am not a doctor or a lawyer.

I found scopolamine moderately effective as it reduces the quatity of fluids secreted in the nose and lungs as well as promoting drowsiness and sleep.

Clenbuterol worked pretty damn well for me, and parly counter-acted lethergy from the scopolamine. But seek medical advice first.

Kalms from boots helped me sleep when I had an irritating cough
Sugar free hard sweets. Tablets to reduce irritation of cough (boots again)

I thought scopolamine was a truth drug from the late 60's early 70's, the name is used in a few spy and adventure war movies of that time ??

Nah, Sodium Pentathol (thiopentone) is known as the truth drug. Actually very unreliable because while it may make the patient say things, they are not neccessarily true!

I am deperately trying to remember scopolamine. I think it was derived from the Deadly Nightshade, not sure*. The sequence of events used to be the patient was given a so-called 'pre-med' consisting of, usually, Omnopon (a narcotic) with scopolomine intra-muscularly, about an hour before going to theatre. This prepared the patient to receive the anaesthetic and made them calm and drowsy. The scopolomine dried up secretions, giving an unpleasant dry mouth but reducing the likelyhood of developing pneumonia. Then they were taken to theatre where they were given sodium pentathol intravenously to induce unconsciousness and were maintaned at the desired level of consciousness by a gas, such as halothane. They also had a dose of curare which parylised all their muscles, including the muscles of respiration, so the anaesthetist would keep them alive by ventilating them through a Boyle's machine.

Using scopolamine to treat a productive cough makes sense as it will reduce the amount of sputum produced in the bronchial tree. It is dangerous, so do not be tempted to go out and suck a Deadly Nightshade plant. Get it from a pharmacist.

*Although, the more I think about it, the more confident I get.

Edit for speddling!
