Rename the Package Please!

I'm not feeling well, I'm running a bit of a temperature, I am congested and coughing/sneezing.

Last night I decided to take something before going to bed.

I normally find my body responds very well to TheraFlu when I have these symptoms. So I went to my medicine cabinet for a look see.

I only had the daytime 'Non Drowsy' mix.

'No problem!' thought I, I don't need anything to put me to sleep, I'm so tired that I'll fall asleep naturally, so it doesn't matter that it's Non-Drowsy.

Bad mistake.

The active ingredients are Acetaminophen, Dextromethorphan hydrochloride and Pseudophedrine hydrocholoride.

I had forgotten how my body reacts to Pseudophedrine.

Side effects include: Central Nervous System stimulation, sleeplessness, nervousness, excitability, dizziness and anxiety.

I was trying to sleep but my Spirit was out Clubbing.

I was trying to rest but my body was dancing at 140 beats per minute.

I've had this experience before, I guess the cold addled my brain so I wasn't thinking when I downed the demon TheraFlu.


'Non-Drowsy' should immediately be renamed as 'Anti-Drowsy'!!!!!!!


Needless to say I feel like crap today, so I'm off to bed!
