Today, I tried to power through work on a construction site after a couple of sick days. I can't do anything without constantly sucking on cough drops. And it turns out that excessive consumption of cough drops can have a laxative effect. FML

1) joke.
2) Why would I be excited to learn about a laxative when I'm having a really bad week? Probably extreme constipation!
Sorry the joke wasn't obvious enough for you. I'll stick to knock knocks in the future to not confuse you.

"sugar free" candies aren't actually sugar free, they just use sugars that our body can't process such as certain alcohol sugars.

These collect in your lower digestive tract and once they hit a certain concentration, boom. Poop time.

Cough drops are medicated. Like any other medicine, you should definitely read the package before you take any. It tells you on the bag not to exceed a certain amount of drops per day.

Anything that is sugar free (like cough drops) can have this effect. Sugar free products like gum and stuff use xylitol as a sweetener, which in excess quantities can act as a laxative
