availability of or not of brondecon elixir
I recently went to my local chemist and was told that brondecon elixir is no longer available. WHY? It was the best stuff for a cough or cold and I want some for my bronchitus ## I had this issue also, i spoke with about 7 different chemists. They have stopped making it!!!!. I was it shock and horror, i suffer chronic asthma, it helped. I have been trying *NUELIN SYRUP* It is helping, but no as good. ## The only thing I can suggest is discussing it with your doctor to find another option that works for you. We have had several posts about this no longer being available, but I have no specific information as to why. What other options have you tried?

This is another expamle of something that was discontinued that defies logic. ## My daughter has had it since a very young girl and it is wonderful, now on steroids and that can only be taken for a short peroid of time, did't have to take steroids when on the brodecon for asthma now back to the same old sickness. Y is it that the majority suffer for the minority idiots. When you are very sick and on oxygen and a simple thing from the chemist can work why can't something be done. MM...
