At that time, like year 2003 time, I was supposed to drink 5 packs of the medicine. Each pack costs Php125. I was advised that if I didn't like the taste of the drink, I can just add sugar and it will taste like Milo. I opened a pack, dissolved it in water. It taste like ground tree dirt. I can still remember my boss laughing at me for pushing through with a crazy idea. But hey, it's been paid for, so I'll stick to it. I added in sugar to make it taste like Milo as the good doctor advised. It tasted like ground tree dirt...with sugar. If that's how Chinese Milo tastes like, I'm sticking with the Philippine blend. So, what happened to me after going through 5 days of drinking crap? I haven't used an antihistamine up to this day. So, I was convinced that I was one of those who respond more to eastern medication.
Since I wasn't able to go back to SynergyMed or found something like it, I was back to western medicines except for cough medications that include:

Snake Bile with Honey
(I don't know how you call it in Chinese, but I take this when the other 2 didn't work)

Thinking about it though, maybe I need to revisit TCM for detox or realign my meridians or something. Hmmm
