About Delsym

Delsym was one of the leading pioneers in developing long-lasting cough syrup in the 1980s, and the first cough syrup to deliver 12 full hours of cough relief. Delsym’s long-lasting delivery system is so unique that it inspired the brand’s name “DELivery SYsteM.”

Today Delsym is the #1 12-hour cough medicine.* The advanced time-release formula helps control your cough for up to 12 hours. That’s three times longer than the leading cough liquid,** for long-lasting relief, all day or all night.

Delsym has products for the whole family. In fact, Children’s Delsym is the #1 pediatrician recommended children’s 12-hour cough suppressant*** as well as the most recommended children’s cough medication by pharmacists.**** And if you’re dealing with more than a cough, try the Cough+ range for both adults and children with daytime and nighttime formulas.

Benefits of Delsym
