    I took this the first time and got stomach cramps, severe stomach cramps and felt the urge to go to the bathroom. I thought it was just coincidence. Several months later, I took it again (tonight) .. had the same problems .. the horrible stomach cramping, the heart palpatations ... dizzyness. I will NOT take this again.

I found it very effective to help loosen/lessen my cough and experienced NO negative side effects; in fact, I took another pill this morning before I left for work. After reading so many bad reviews from other users, I wonder if perhaps a combinati ... Show Full Comment
