My doctor told me Tylenol PM but sparingly. I also heard Robotusim works.

PLEASE just be careful with Robotusim (spelling?).  I am an alcoholic and used to drink it by the bottle for the buzz.  It still scares me and I won't take it to this day.  There is an ingredient in it (I don't remember what it is) that makes people abuse it.  There was even a documentary on TV about teenagers who were hooked on it.  They even had a slang name for using it (drawing a blank right now).  Just a heads up.

I just looked it up:
----------------------------------------
Besides Triple-C, other street names for DXM include: Candy, C-C-C, Dex, DM, Drex, Red Devils, Robo, Rojo, Skittles, Tussin, Velvet, and Vitamin D. Users are sometimes called "syrup heads" and the act of abusing DXM is often called "dexing," "robotripping," or "robodosing" (because users chug Robitussin or another cough syrup to achieve their desired high).

What Happens When Teens Abuse DXM?
Although DXM can be safely taken in 15- to 30-milligram doses to suppress a cough, abusers tend to consume as much as 360 milligrams or more. Taking mass quantities of products containing DXM can cause hallucinations, loss of motor control, and "out-of-body" (disassociative) sensations.
----------------------------------------------
If you take it once in awhile as directed, ok.  But us with our addiction issues, it's really not something to mess with.  Sorry to preach, I just know from personal experience.

Yes you can take 2 at a time if 1 isn't working for you....They are very safe!

You can get them at any drug store, got mine at CVS...
