Is Triaminic your choice for treating a cold? You’re in luck. Novartis Consumer Health, Inc., a NJ-based Novartis company, announced June 10 that the company’s Triaminic brand pediatric cold/cough/allergy liquid medications have been certified as kosher and pareve by the OU. The eight varieties of Triaminic liquid are: Cold & Cough, cherry; Cough, berry; Chest & Nasal Congestion, tropical; Cough & Nasal Congestion, orange-strawberry; Flu, Cough & Fever, bubble gum; Cold & Allergy, orange; Night Time Cough & Cold, grape; and Cough & Sore Throat, grape.
If you prefer something a little, er, stronger to treat your cold/sore throat, you’ll also be happy to know that Drambuie has obtained kosher certification from the London Beth Din (no kashrut symbol is required, according to the London Beth Din).
