    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.
