    It's only the cough syrups have may have syns so cold remedies in tablet form should be okay - but at the end of the day you are ill and getting better should take priority. Even the cough syrups are not horrendously high in syns if you wanted to count the syns.

    I totally agree with Circes but if you boil diet lemonade then add soluble aspirin or a paracetamol tablet it acts like a alemsip and soothes colds/sore throats etc. Don't fill the mug with lemonade as it will fizz up when you add the tablet.Boiled onions are also something my Gran swore by for colds.

    Ginger tea
    Having hot blackcurrant dilutant juice
    Sugar free strepsils

    Not all syn free but should be low enough, although I am with Circes in that if you're sick that should take priority.
