Some Covonia products also contain alcohol, therefore overdose of these products or ingestion of additional alcohol may result in alcohol intoxication. To check the dietary properties of a specific Covonia product, visit the Dietary Properties Table.

The small amount of alcohol in this medicine will not have any noticeable effects. This medicine contains sodium methyl, ethyl and propyl parahydroxybenzoate which may cause allergic reactions (possibly delayed). This medicine contains less than 1mmol sodium (23mg) per 5ml dose, that is to say essentially 'sodium-free'.

Can You Overdose? It is very easy to overdose on this drug, in part because opioids depress breathing to the point of oxygen deprivation while the person is asleep. Mixing alcohol and opioids enhances the effects of both drugs, making it harder for emergency responders to treat the overdose.

One active ingredient is Ethanol 7.5% so much stronger than Stella but half a bottle isn't much. However certain covonia formulations (and there are loads of 'em) contain paracetamol so read the label- you can't get a much nastier drug than paracetamol: in extreme cases 6 paracetamol tabs (500mgm) have caused fatal liver failure.

WebMD explains that the biggest risk from drinking too much cough syrup is overdose on DXM, a common ingredient in nearly all over-the-counter cough medicines. DXM overdose may result in impaired vision, sweating, fever, disturbed breathing, irregular heart beat, blood pressure irregularities, stomach upset, impaired mental function and hallucination among other serious side effects.

It is thought to be of low toxicity, but the effects in overdosage will be potentiated by simultaneous ingestion of alcohol and psychotropic drugs. Symptoms of overdose include respiratory depression, nausea, drowsiness restlessness, excitement and ataxia. Treatment should be symptomatic to maintain vital functions.

Just pour it on top of his feed - soon cleared the cough up. Two bottles is normally enough to do the trick. My vet recommended to use benylin when he had the same cough about two years ago - again when living out, no snot etc so think he just had a cough in the way we do occasionally. Again gone within the week.
