While there is not yet firm evidence for adverse effects, there is also no firm evidence to the contrary and medical science indicates some pretty scary suspicions, which is why I'd personally be cautious. I'm also a bit skeptical of Dr Andrew Saul personally, there's so little info about him online except self-promoting stuff, and by his own resume, he doesn't have a medical qualification- he's a Dr of Philosophy to start with, not a medical doctor. Must do some further reading anyway- curiosity is piqued!

Definitely second the mega doses of vitamin c. Helped when our kids had whooping cough amazingly.

I think with EVERYTHING we need to question things time and time again! Not just natural therapies, the pharmcuticals as well! We're not robots were not a one size fits all either!

Ok so I ended up taking him to our gp. His cough is being caused by a sinus infection and the (Ewww) mucus is tickling his throat causing the persistent cough. Gp prescribed antibiotics and recommended chemist own kiddicol mix which has a decongestant and a suppressant in it but at lower doses for ages 2-10. It has worked brilliantly, we got through the night mostly unscathed and doubled with a little honey here and there and he's looking pretty healthy
Thanks all for your replies. Oh and re: vitamin c, my kids take daily vitamin c and Echinacea tablets and gp confirmed that excess vitamin c is passed out of the body through urine
