You can become dependent on them. A guy at my rehab died from them a few months ago. They are especially dangerous when taken with carbonated and caffeinated drinks. It is like battery acid to the stomach. Please, stop as soon as possible. Rebound headaches and general aches will be common but will subside with time.

Powdered asprin with caffeine, and they are terrible for your stomach. I know a guy who ate them like candy and ended up having half of his stomach removed because of a bleeding ulcer that almost killed him. The best part....he still takes them. So I would say you can be addicted to them.

Yikes.  We addicts find the best stuff to put in our bodies don't we?

I was taking a lot of cold meds to get a little high a while back and it did terrible things to my stomach.  Better nip this in the bud before it gets worse.  Drink a hot tea or a cup of coffee if you need some caffeine.  You should be feeling better soon if you can manage to just stop now.

Take care

Please be careful with BC powders. A guy I worked with took several of those a day for a few years. He ended up with ulcers so bad in his stomach that it blocked the entrance between the stomach and intestines. He started throwing up everything he ate, lost a ton of weight before he finally went to the doctor and ended up in the hospital for over a week.

I myself was taking BC Powder. I was taking 6 to 8 a day for the pain relief and also the high that it gave me when I took them. I did this for about 2 years. I felt fine, great even that is untill I could not get out of my bed one afternoon BC killed my kidneys I was running at 5% I now have a tube hanging out of my belly that I hook up to a pd mechine every night. If I only knew then what  I know now.

I've been taking BC Powders for many many years for my migraine headaches. I just found out that I might have kidney cancer and I'm afraid that it's my fault, because of my over-usage of this medication.

Popularmicah,
I'm scared of what might happen to me and would like to hear back  from you.
