Don’t take 30mL of Vicks 44D. Even though they give you a cup that is 30mL big, and most liquid drugs make the cup the size of the adult dose, the correct adult dose is 15mL.
About ten minutes after taking 30mL of Vicks 44D, if you’re like me, you’ll break out into a sweat, feel nauseous, and generally want to die. And then you’ll look at the label, because you’re an idiot who didn’t look until then, and you’ll realize the mistake…so you’ll dry heave over the sink for awhile, hoping to get some of it out of your system…and fail. So then you’ll lay on the bed and stare at the ceiling like an addict on a bad trip while waiting for the badness to go away. It takes about 15 minutes for the badness to go away. Then, you’ll feel fine, except for then realizing that it could have gone MUCH worse and that you’re equally stupid for not calling SOMEONE just in case your heart explodes or something.
Yay for my body being awesome enough to survive. 🙂 Boo for being an idiot who assumes and doesn’t read labels!
On the plus side, my sinuses have cleared up.
