I was excited hoping that I would be able to sleep without having coughing fits, took my pill before bed, went to lay down 20 minutes later I was up most of the night coughing and could not sleep...Did not work at all it seemed to make my cough worse! I took Nyquil the next night and slept like a baby and barely coughed through the night.

I was prescribed this for bronchitis and It worked instantly, till the next dose. My sinuses started draining and my left side of my face and eye swelled up and then my whole face swelled and I had the worse headache I have ever had. Please use caution with this drug.

I am a 270 Lbs man and 200 mg of benzonatate made me hallucinate. Especially taking late at night before bed. Confusion and some slight dizziness also occurred.
