Honey is actually a cough supressant (not sure how to spell that and spell check doesnt either). So I make the honey/lemon "tea" if I am laying down for a nap or sleep. I also take it if the cough is being unproductive and I just need a break from it. If that's the only symptom i have I just drink water. My current cold was bad enough I did take a dose of Robitussin for three nights so I could sleep. Unfortunately most of my colds turn into sinus infections and this one is no different. Luckily I dont get sick very often.
