Buckley’s Mixture is a cough syrup used to treat cough caused by the common cold or flu. Its original version has been available in Canada since 1919 and it is still being produced today.

The active ingredients include potassium bicarbonate, ammonium carbonate, menthol, and camphor. Adults and children over 12 years old are advised to take 1 to 2 teaspoons (5 to 10 mL) of the syrup, not exceeding 5 doses daily.

The syrup can be mixed with equal parts honey if preferred. While noted for its strongly unpleasant taste, Buckley’s Mixture is a popular cough syrup available in many countries.
