 1  Cough This medicine made me unable to BREATHE!!! I went to urgent Care to appease my boyfriend. He hounded me about taking the meds they prescribed even though I felt the intuitive urge not to... As soon as I took one, about 30 minutes later came a cough episode from hell, with my throat closing up. Thought maybe it was cold air. Took another one. Same thing. This time chest tightness and burning. I went to another urgent care where they gave me a breathing treatment and a z pack for suspected bacterial bronchitis. I came hm and told my man I think it was a side effect of the meds. He said let me take one, I've been coughing a little let's see if it works for me. 30 minutes later he had a migraine from hell and a fever. DON'T TAKE THIS TRASH!!! F 30 1 days

 1  Severe cough w/respiratory infec symptoms similar to a heart attack -- tightness/pressure on chest from front and back, everything went gray, extreme nausea, feeling faint, stumbling, weakness, heaving. I saw a diagram of a heart -- almost like my "check engine" light came on -- as the symptoms began. I was so wiped out by the experience it took 1 week for me to lay around the house and rest before I could feel slightly human. This stuff could have killed me! Was on 100mg 2xday and did not have side effect except for a little drowsiness. Dosage was doubled by MD due to persistent cough, and that's when the trouble began! I would NEVER take this med again and will just use over-the-counter products and stay the course. F 58 1 days

 1  Bronchitis with severe cough This was an awful medication -- and that means a lot coming from a person with Bipolar Disorder who has taken more than her fair share of medications! This little pill was evil. The irritation and negative reaction was immense for my esophagus. It produced a feeling of blockage, and I had great difficulty swallowing. My throat swelled up and I have pain from my tonsil area all the way down into my esophagus. I had to go to urgent care where the doctor was surprised by the reaction. Now I have to take Prednisone to alleviate the inflammation and swelling (not a great med for BP people to take but it's better than feeling like I'm choking!). RUN AWAY from this hateful pill!! F 41 2 days

 1  Persistent cough I recall a severe light sensitivity, which may have been due to the headache, and general sense of lethargy and confusion. I was on vacation and spent 2 days in the hotel in the bed with the lights off. I remember thinking that this pill was evil, which reminds me, I may have been having slight hallucinations. It did help with the cough. M 50 2 days

 4  Cough Vivid dreams, sleep paralysis This was prescribed for me to take 3x a day for 10 days as needed for cough. It helped for the cough but the dreams I had were very vivid ! The first night I talked in my sleep and went in and out of consciousness. That didn't bother me too much . What bothered me was the next night when I had constant nightmares and sleep paralysis. It was very scary because I was aware yet I could not wake up . I wouldn't advise against taking it necessarily, however I would suggest to see if there was an alternative drug available for the ailment the person has . F 18 10 days
