Keep Medicine Cabinet Stocked
During the cold and flu season, we prefer to keep our medicine cabinet fully stocked at all times. I prefer to keep things simple by including essential items such as vapor rub, saline nose spray, multivitamins, and Children’s Delsym in our collection.
There are several reasons why I love Delsym cough medicine. One of the main reasons is that it contains only one active ingredient that is designed to effectively alleviate cough symptoms, and it is completely free from pain relievers, sulfites, and alcohol.
You can purchase Children’s Delsym at your nearby Walmart to have a reliable cough medication for your kids in your medicine cabinet, and it can last for up to 12 hours. This product is available in two different flavors: orange and grape. In my family, we prefer the orange-flavored medicine. What’s your favorite flavor?
