Could you explain the effects of this drug?

This looks like a candy, but it is actually a medicine to alleviate your cough. The sugarcane extract is a natural drug to cover all over your throat and is absorbed into the mucous membrane, which will heal your inflammation. This extract is derived from a natural ingredient which the drug company developed, so they took a patent of this effect. I always recommend this to my patients and they actually get well very soon. Would you try it for a couple of days?

This looks like a candy, but it is actually a medicine to alleviate your cough.

This extract is derived from a natural ingredient which the drug company developed, so they took a patent of this effect. I always recommend this to my patients and they actually get well very soon. Would you try it for a couple of days? It has a proven track record for success, and there are usually no side effects associated with it.

The grammar is great. I've expanded on the subject a bit.
Yes, of course. I hope it will be helpful. Does this medicine have some kins of side effects perhaps?

Well, it you take it too much, you might become diabetes or have tooth decay because the extract is derived from sugarcane. However, as you can see the description on the box, you can take up to 10 pieces per day. You may not be able to take that much though, because it is quite bitter although is is made of sugarcane. As the proverb says, "Good medicine tastes bitter". Another thing is this costs a bit more expensive than other regular drugs, for about 10%. However, my patients say this works better than any others.

1. You want to use an adjective, not a noun.
2. When you say it "costs a bit more" it means it's more expensive. It can't cost expensive, because expensive is not a quantifier.
3. The main object you are referencing is in the singular form.
I see. Should I take it just when I feel like needing it? I do not need to take it if I feel all right?

For the first three days, please take it at least 3 pieces per day so that the sore gets better. After three days, you can take it only when you need. Please come again to check if you are recovered. How about next Monday?

If not, we could find a common time to schedule that appointment.

Expanded on the dialogue a bit.
Yes I'll come back next Monday so see if I've recovered. If I don't recover by then, is there a stronger medicine you can prescribe?

Yes, certainly. I can provide you with a stronger one, but for now, this drop will certainly work. Oh, there is one more thing I have to tell you about this drop. If you take it too much, it makes you drowsy. So, don't take it more than 10 drops per day, okay? What time would you prefer for the next Monday's appointment, at 1pm or 5pm?

1. "Too much" already implies the "it" so it is not needed.
Next Monday ... Let me check my schedule quickly, I think we can confirm my appointment at 1 in the afternoon. I'll use my lunchtime. Thank you so much.

OK, then let's see whether your throat get better at the time. This is not a serious symptom, so you should be fine by then. Take care of yourself and see you next week.

Added a sentence at the end. The grammar is great.
