Benylin Convulsion Causes and Reviews
Seizures are symptoms of a brain problem. They happen because of sudden, abnormal
electrical activity in the brain. When people think of seizures, they often think of Convulsions in which a person's body
shakes rapidly and uncontrollably. Not all seizures cause Convulsions. There are many types
of seizures and some have mild symptoms. Seizures fall into two main groups. Focal
seizures, also called partial seizures, happen in just one part of the brain. Generalized
seizures are a result of abnormal activity on both sides of the brain.
Most seizures last from 30 seconds to 2 minutes and do not cause lasting harm. However,
it is a medical emergency if seizures last longer than 5 minutes or if a person has many
seizures and does not wake up between them. Seizures can have many causes, including
medicines, high fevers, head injuries and certain diseases. People who have recurring
seizures due to a brain disorder have epilepsy.

I took 7.5ml of Benylin Mucus and Phlegm which is less than the recommended dosage for my age (39 yrs). I did not sleep all night, my eyes are puffy, my vision is blurred caused by a thick discharge in both of my eyes. Never have that before. Its the LAST TIME I TAKE BENYLIN.

I took the night time version and now I am wide awake 4 hours later, every time I am about to fall asleep my throat starts twinging and a coughing fit follows. Without the drug I don't have this it has also caused disgusting discharge from my eyes, a horrible headache and tightness in chest. I would highly recommend NOT taking this product it is horrible and I have a feeling has probably caused serious damage to my bronchial tubes with the amount of coughing its causing.

I took Benylin the other night and I could not fall asleep. I was awake in my dream, or my hallucinations. My husband woke me up and my hands we crippled up and I could not move feet. He took me to emergency, as I thought I was having a stroke. The drs said it was probably a reaction to Benylin. I am 58 yr female, healthy and I do not take any other medications.

Took the prescribed amount for my age. Did wonders in getting rid of my cough but was to busy enjoying the hallucinations to feel the relief. Took it once. Won't take it again. I like being in reality.
