Well, I made my first batch of Wild Lettuce Cough Syrup. I don't have a Cough right now, so I wanted to test the sedative, pain relieving abilities of this syrup. First, let me say that it is as awful tasting as described, even though I mixed two cups of Sugar with it to make a light syrup. After it had cooled I bottled it, and about 9:00 PM I took about 1/2 of a shot glass as a dose. I don't remember going to sleep, and woke to my wife shaking me awake at 10:30 this morning. I suffered no Knee or leg pains, which often keep me awake, or wake me during the night. There also no side effects, or after effects. All in all I think this is a good Medicine, easy to make, and effective.
