    I will never take this again. My throat has been swollen ever since and I have had a very difficult time swallowing. I was up all night and sought medical attention from my ENT.

    Persistent cough with no mucous being expectorated!!! One pill left me sleepless and jittery, and unable to control terrible and painful coughing fits- with ZERO mucous getting expectorated! I now have SEVERE throat pain, an acute inability to swallow, and painful, uncontrollable fit of wheezing.

    I took 2 20mL doses to quiet a cough that was making a back sprain even more painful: The first 20mL at 7 pm, and the second 20 mL at 11pm. I woke up at 2am, relieved that I was not coughing, but aware that I help loopy. When I got out of bed at 6am, I noticed that I still felt loopy and lightheaded. I fainted and fell straight backwards onto my tile floor, resulting in a scalp laceration that req ... Show Full Comment
