Calcough blackcurrant is a soothing glycerol and sucrose based syrup designed for relieving dry, tickly coughs and sore throats in children over the age of 1 year.


Calcough blackcurrant is a non-drowsy cough liquid that has been developed by our specialists to help gently relieve dry, tickly coughs and sore throats. This product can be taken alongside CALPOL® Infant Suspension if pain and fever relief is also needed. 

Calcough blackcurrant is a treatment that is designed to treat a child’s cough. It does this thanks to the two active ingredients contained in the syrup:

  • Glycerin
  • Liquid Sugar

Glycerin works as a lubricant to soothe a sore throat and reduce the effects of a cough. Liquid sugar works in the same way, helping to reduce a dry, tickly cough. This syrup has a blackcurrant flavour and is non-drowsy.

There is nothing to say that an adult cannot use this medicine if they are suffering from a dry, tickly cough. Though it might be better if medical advice is asked for before using.
