I have a cold right now and have been eating a lot of Fisherman's Friend throat lozenges. I've been using the blue package kind and now I'm cramping but I haven't eaten anything today that would usually make me cramp. It also seems to make me go to the washroom. Don't ask how many I've eaten, I'm not sure. Not a whole package. Has anyone else experienced this with Fisherman's Friends or other OTC medicines?
Wow, thanks for replying! I didn't think anyone would answer. Yes, the blue package says its sweetened with sorbitol, I'm not sure what that is really. And yes, I appear to have started to kick the cold already. Does anyone know of any other over the counter medications that affect IBS?
