    Hey guys, I'm looking for a drink that tastes like lemon Lemsip. Because I have a cold ATM, it's fine, I can just drink Lemsip. However, I'm pretty sure that drinking Lemsip when I don't need to isn't the best of ideas. So I was wondering if there are any drinks out there like lemon Lemsip, but without the paracetemol.

    Obviously, I know I could heat up lemonade, but that's impractical for when I'm at work.

    Make your own lemsip..
    I can't bare the stuff, but I believe its hot water, with lemon juice added to taste and honey.

    If you've got a mocrowave at work, just get some old fashioned cloudy lemonade and nuke a cupful. It tastes exactly like lemsip (if you get the sugar filled, as opposed to the sugar free stuff) but without the paracetamol/caffeine hit.

    Umm, each sachet of lemsip contains a full dose of paracetamol, if you drank it more than the recommended dosage it would definitely do you damage :P

    And to the OP you could try making lemon squash with hot water

    Ditto. Some even contain the double dose of paracetemol which is 1000mg and a decongestant,phenylephrine hydrochloride, which causes hypertension and could possibly cause problems in the long run though possibly not at the doses found in lemsip.However, if she was drinking this stuff like water it would probably not be a smart move at all.

    Heh, somehow I don't think that'd be appropriate at work.

    And thanks for the other suggestions guys, I'll probably give them a try at some point in the near future.
