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 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.
