    I've done it many times. It sends you off to sleep nicely. i've never had any *bad* side affects. On the other hand, you shouldnt use it too much, the stuff is addictive....

    come to think of it, I wouldnt mind a swig of it right now....

    actually i took about half a bottle once. It was like being drunk, no worse.

    Taking another dose isnt going to harm you....

    yeah, be careful. i think double dose should be enough to send you off.... don't go too far...

    give it a second to work... lie down in the dark and see whether you accidently fall asleep. Wouldnt recommend taking any more than that, especially if you arent used to it.

    Good advice, then again, have you tried a glass of warm milk? Sounds stupid I know, but then again putting plaster on a broken arm may sound stupid to some people too.

    because i have taken lots of benylin in the past, both to stop me coughing and to go to sleep. and once because i wanted to see what would happen if i took half a bottle.

    Oooook. The answer is simple. Half the bottle would disappear. *nods insistently*
