    Gave my 8 year old Kroger Children’s Mucus Relief Cough syrup. She reported that it made her stomach hurt. Next day, she was very nauseaous and threw up repeatedly. I thought the cause was a new mood medication she started the previous week. However, a little later, I gave some to my son (6 yo) for a cough and he almost immediately complained of stomach upset and thought he might throw up. Went aw ... Show Full Comment

    I have been giving this to my sixteen year old for two days, every four hours and he woke up with rashes all over his arms and legs and his lips were also swollen. This is a side effect that this drug has and was omitted off the carton.

    It smells like dog treats. But if you can work past that, it does help break things up and makes coughing easier and more productive. I haven't had any nasty side effects. I have been sick a couple of times, but I was doing that before I started taking these. I'm chalking it up to mucus build up in the stomach and poor timing.

    This drug did get me coughing and broke up the mucus. It also gave me severe stomach cramps and I was throwing up repeatedly. Thank goodness I didn't take it before going to work! I only used two pills in a 24 hour time frame and won't be taking this medication anymore since the side effects are so horrible and painful.
