MADISON, N.J. -- November 25, 2013

With more than 40 million Americans expected to travel this holiday season,
facing the increased chance of catching a cough, cold or flu while on the
road, Robitussin® has introduced Maximum Strength Cough + Chest Congestion DM,
its new liquid-filled capsules that control cough on-the-go. This formulation
not only harnesses the power of Maximum Strength Robitussin® cough liquid, but
is a convenient option for those hitting the road or boarding a plane this
holiday season.

Travelers should take steps to avoid the consequences of cough – or
“COUGHequences” – this holiday season by avoiding contact with cold and flu
sufferers, frequently washing their hands, and treating cough, cold and flu
symptoms when they appear. Each year in the U.S., there are more than one
billion cases of the common cold and on average, five to 20 percent of the
population get the flu. Cough is one of the most common symptoms of cold and
flu, affecting up to 50 percent of sufferers.

Robitussin® has a variety of products tailored to effectively treat different
symptom combinations for the entire family, including new Maximum Strength
Cough + Chest Congestion DM liquid-filled capsules and new Maximum Strength
Nighttime Cough DM.

Plus, whether traveling cross country or staying close to home, families can
track when cough activity spikes in their local area via the Robitussin®
COUGHCAST™ tool. This tool, available on Robitussin.com, can let people know
when cough is most likely to strike, so they can be prepared to effectively
treat their symptoms – and avoid the “COUGHequences” of missed vacations,
holiday parties and workdays.
