Doctor's Response (Posted on : 28 Jan 2009 )


Coldact contains Chlorpheniramine and we don't know if taking 5-6 tablets can cause sleep for a day but it will cause hallucinations and put the person in life threatening sitatuation. The side effects include extreme sleepiness, confusion, weakness, ringing in the ears, blurred vision, large pupils, dry mouth, flushing, fever, shaking, insomnia, hallucinations, and possibly seizures.
