Read the ingredient list: many of the sugar-free ones have an ingredient that acts as a laxative. If you are sensitive to intestinal issues, as few as five in a two-hour period will be enough for a subsequent stay in the bathroom.

I loved these cough drops. Helped soothe my minor sore throat. Didn’t realize the package said they May have a laxative effect till after I ate 12 of them in a short amount of time. I have had horrible stomach pain and diarrhea a few hours after using them.... moral of the story... don’t eat too many

I had 2, I repeat 2 of these cough drops within a 1 hour time period. I got horrible cramps, diarrhea, chills. The package said excessive use will have a laxative effect. I would NEVER have imagined 2 was excessive. I would like to state that I have seasonal allergies, I was not sick and do not have any health issues. I do not take any medications. This was strictly caused by the sugar-free Halls menthol cough drops.

I developed a habit of eating about 4 or 5 Hall's cough drops while driving to work daily. Became a candy habit and as a result developed 3 cavities. I routinely go to dentist twice a year and last visit is when cavaties appeared. Lesson learned, don't over do those cough drops. Dentist said too many are bad.

I still have my cough which defeats the purpose of the cough drop. I will admit the cough is not as bad as it was. Over the product works well but i can't stand the flavor of the drops.
