In Germany, I usually get Acetylcysteine, but in the UK you need a prescription for that. So the clerk in the pharmacy sold me cough syrup. Looking at it after leaving the shop, it is only sugar, water and some flavouring. I dumped it and got some sugar-free cough drops instead.

When I have a cold, I take a good dose of cough suppressant and sleep. Lots of sleep.
