How long til Hall's "laxative" effect wears off?
Normally when I have a sore throat, I use the Ricola cough drops and eat them as if they’re candy-as soon as I finish one, I start another-that’s how bad my throat gets.
This morning, we were all out of Ricola, but we had a spare bag of the sugar-free Hall’s Fruit Breezers lying around. I didn’t bother looking at the bag (stupid me), and ate them the same way I eat Ricola. It wasn’t ‘til (approx) 13 drops later (around mid afternoon) that I learned the side effects the hard way. . . And then when I checked the bag, there it was. “Excessive dosage could cause a laxative effect.” And it still hasn’t stopped.
Now, all I want to know is how long will it take for it to wear off? I really ought to go to school tomorrow, but if I’ll still be running to the bathroom every five minutes, I’d rather stay home than face the disgusting high school bathrooms.
