May 02, 2017Reviewer: Sue in Massachusetts* This is not medical advice, only my personal experience with this product. I hope someone finds it helpful. I just ordered my second bottle of Umcka Coldcare even though the first one isn't empty. I just want to be sure I have some in reserve in case I need it. I used it for the first time a couple weeks ago. I had a bad cold and ordered this to try it. My cold was quite bad, and had been getting worse, when I took my first dosage and I noticed results almost immediately. I have mild asthma, so anything that effects my respiration is noticeable. It's pleasant tasting and very easy to take. I just used 2 droppers full each dose, the dropper is conveniently marked with dosages. I didn't even have to use it as often as the recommended dosage suggested. I was using diabetic tussin for the cough, but I don't really like to take OC meds. I was able to use less cough syrup when I started using the umcka drops. In the future I will also use it when something in the air is making me cough. In the past I've had to use diabetic tussin or an inhaler when I had one of those "coughing fits", as I call them :) I think the umcka will be a better option for me. To me they seem much more in line with holistic or homeopathic treatments which I prefer instead of OC or even prescription meds. I'm trying to do without prescription meds whenever I can find more natural alternatives. This website has some good information on the main ingredient. https://www.drugs.com/npp/pelargonium.html As with anything you take, you should use caution if you have any serious illnesses or take prescriptions.
