I've read all the comments about the taste, and it's not that bad. I've certainly had worse. I'd says DayQuil or Nyquil is worse. As far as the reactions of making people vomit, abdominal pain, etc. Those symptoms are different for everyone, and may have just been an allergic reaction. So far it's worked better than others.

I have used this before and it didn't work then. This time though, my throat and stomach hurt from coughing and I had not had sleep for a couple nights so I had nothing to lose to try it again, only this time I took it with a advil cold and sinus, and phew it worked wonders, no runny nose and no cough!!!!!!

I took the dose prescribed to me and within a half an hour I was violently ill... my cough had actually worsened and I started to vomit. I did not sleep a wink!!! Tossed and turned ALLLLL night. The next day I felt worse than before I took it. I thought it looked too watery for a cough "syrup" so I called my Dr to make sure the pharmacy gave me the correct medication. They said they did. ...
