i wouldnt worry about the syns you need to take medicine to help you get better.

hope you get better soon XXX
According to the syns pdf document I downloaded from BodyOptimise just earlier today:

cough syrup is 1.5 syns for 2 level tsps.
throat lozenges are 1.5 syns per 2 sweets.

But I wouldn't worry too much about the syns they cost, just focus on getting well again :)

instead of hot lemons try hot lemonade and parocmols.
try crewing gum the way cough sweet work is they increase saliva production and cause u to swallow more,suppressing coughs. so anything that increases salvia will help.
try leaving a few drops of camomile tinture in a bowl above the radiotor in the bedroom at night.
also theres thyme tea (2 tablespoons fresh thyme or 1 dried in a cup of hot water allow it to infuse for 5 mins, strain out herbs and drink.
theres also marshmellow leaf tea
u could try rubbing vicks on your chest.
do u have coughing fits?
hope u feel better soon

If you take things like Benillyn capsules, they are free as most products contain honey and lemon when you have a cough or a cold.....either that or stick to paracetamol and hot drinks, but as everyone else has said....dont worry about syn values, just concentrate on getting better.
