10 Sep 2012 I am just reovering from a chest infection and cough for which I was taking over-the-counter Robitussin about 4 times a day. This evening, my heart started beating twice and then skipping a beat in a regular pattern of three. I felt bad. Walking up and down stairs kicked it back into normal rhythm. I was motivated to Google "arrythmias" where I rapidly discovered that arrythmia is a known side effect of Robitussin. It was scary. I will not be using it again.
