We're between a rock and a hard place with those products..we are inundated in almost every purchased product.
You could very well have a problem with it.....you could call the pharmacy and request the regular one...or at least see what the difference is in the ingredients.
Regarding sweeteners and my consumption...There is sorbitol in the cough/expectorant liquid that I use. It doesn't seem to be a huge problem during those short periods when I use it, but I do sometimes stomach dicomfort.
Last year, my beloved Doublemint gum has been adulterated by the dreaded artificial sweeteners, and I definitely was bothered by it with a severe specific cramping a few hours after chewing even one stick...so had to scrap it after being a loyal consumer of 40 years...sigh.
I found Spry gum that does have Xylitol in it, but I can chew it with no noticable problems (except the cinnamon that my mouth seems to react to).
I won't consume any aspartame, mannitol, or Splenda, but one has to surely read all the labels.
I'm pretty much a sugar consumer. I'll use it sometimes amount in my coffee and about
half the called amount for in in baking/cooking.
When they start to something else such as Stevia or agava in products, I'd consider, but in the meantime, I do keep my consumption of artificial sweeteners very limited.
Hope it works out for you.
