Thank you for the info, I hope you feel better soon, Do we count syns in cough mixture? I don't know the answer to that either.

My consultant said that you should count syns in medicine due to the sugar content. Anything we put in our mouths has to be accounted for! A while back there was a section in the SW website for group members about what to do when you are suffering from coughs, colds and flu. I'll check and see what it says and get back to you here. I too am ill so I want to know.

I'm nnot sure about cough syrups but with regards to cough and cold sweets this is what I found in my syns book:

Fisherman's Friend
All varieties 2 lozenges 0.5
Sugar Free, All Varieties 4 lozenges 0.5

Mentho-Lyptus, sugar free all varieties 32g pack; 4.0
original mentho-lyptus, extra strong, 33.5g pack; 6.5
soothers all varieties, 2 lozenges; 1.5 45g tube 7.5

All verieties, 43tube; 8.0

Original/Menthol&Eucalyptus 1 sweet; 0.5
Sugar Free, 2 sweets; 0.5

Hope this helps a bit.

I can't remember the name of the substance they replace sugar with in diabetic sweets etc, but I have an awful feeling it has as many calories as sugar.

I wonder how many pharmacists have been asked how many Syns are in their products! I did find myself thinking how many Syns in Lemsip before having one! X

How awful that they syn something you can't really not have :/ well i'll have a gain this week then, can't help having a chest infection and most certainly not paying £7.40 for some tablets!
