 2  Upper respiratory infection My Dr. was on vacation this week, and his replacement gave me these, which I've had before and found them ineffective. But being desperate, I took one. About 30 minutes later I realized that my breathing was labored and my eyes were burning. The Dr.'s solution was Benadryl, which knocks me flat out on my butt. Needless to say, I'm not taking these any longer and I'll be suffering through my cough. F 31 1 days

 5  Bronchitis/Cold Slight dry mouth, slight difficulty swallowing. It helped me sleep throughout the night without coughing. Also helped me cough a lot less and avoid coughing fits. I made sure to follow all of the directions and did not mix it with other drugs without consulting with my Doctor first. Tessalon is great! F 4 days

 1  bad cough Paranoia, suicidal. The most horrible time in my 55 years. I became extremely paranoid and suicidal. My wife had to literally lay on me in the bed to keep me from getting up in the night to kill myself. I ended up in lock-up in the psychiatric ward of a local hospital for three weeks, and took over a year psychiatric counselling and more drugs and more recovery from the symptoms from those drugs. After three years, I am finally getting back to normal. PLEASE EVERYONE READ THE FINE PRINT AND BE AWARE OF POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS BEFORE YOU START A NEW MEDICATION. M 55 6 weeks
