This is a wonderful product that was recalled because a two year-old boy chewed on one of these patches and had a seizure. There were no other incidents and the boy was fine afterwards.
I tried several stores over a period of a couple weeks searching for these as they are the only thing that works for my nonverbal autistic son.
He cannot do cough syrup or cough strips, the patch worked great for many years. Luckily I found two in my earthquake kit as he has a cough now.

They have received thousands of calls complaining about this no longer being available. If this was a product that worked for your child, please do call and help get it back into the stores.
The number is available 24/7 and it is to Novartis. There was no other product like this that works on the skin or clothing to sooth coughs and can be worn while sleeping. I would put on a fresh patch before my son went to school if he had a mild cough.
Consider calling 1-800-452-0051 and giving feedback on how this product worked in your household and how you want it available again in the stores.
