I've had a bad cold for a week and saw doctor, the expectorant he prescribed was out of stock so the pharmacist gave me Mucinex. I felt awful all day today and hadn't eaten anything. I took a pill on an empty stomach with water and felt good pretty quickly. About 3 hours later I came down with uncontrollable diarrhea. It was so bad I decided to take a shower, while in the shower I lost control 2 more times, I managed to get out in time the 3rd time. I lost so much fluid so quickly I felt faint and got a headache. I just went again a few minutes ago and when I wiped, there was no color.
I have felt no pain, and there is no smell; I'm dumping water at this point. I'm also urinating during these episodes and that burns.
If my reaction were any more severe, I think it would be life threatening. Then again, I'm in currently in the middle of the reaction, I may be Mucinex's first official fatality.
Do these companies even test this stuff?
