19 Apr 2014 My 8 year old took it in combo w/ignatia and had a bad reaction. Her face went white, trembling, breathing difficult, she became very very hot, and nauseous. It was scary. I called poison control & they said it was probably the ignatia but weren't sure. It subsided in about an hour. We sat in the ER just in case.
