or Covonia is delicious for adults - imagine kids would hate it though

I don't think any cough mixture really works on the cough. There was a recent study which showed that any benefit from cough medicine was due to the soothing effect on the throat, so you could give something plain like honey, glycerin and lemon. Hope she's better soon.
