Lemsip is extending its cough range with two new products for winter 2014.

Lemsip Mucus Cough Sugar and Colour Free contains guaifenesin 100mg and cetylpyridinium chloride 2.5mg in each 5ml. It is intended for the symptomatic relief of acute chesty coughs and catarrh associated with flu, colds and mild throat infections. It is suitable for use in adults and children aged 12 years and over.

Lemsip Cough Max for Chesty Cough & Cold Powder for Oral Solution are sachets to make into a hot drink. Each sachet contains paracetamol 1000mg, guaifensin 200mg and phenylephedrine hydrochloride 12.2mg. They can be used for the relief of symptoms of colds and flu, and are suitable for use by adults and children aged 12 years and upwards.

RB launched the Lemsip Cough range in September 2012, and says the range has been “further developed to meet shopper cough needs and increase category value by bringing new customers to the cough sector through a variety of formats.”

Supporting the launch will be a 360-degree promotional campaign beginning in November, which will include a new television advert.
