Guide to DXM
in Non-Prescription Drugs
by Erowid
v 2.0 - Feb 26, 2008
INTRODUCTION
For those who choose to use DXM recreationally, it is extremely important to pay attention to the active ingredients list of the brand they choose to use. People knowledgeable in the field recommend that only products containing DXM alone (sometimes listed as 'Dextromethorphan hydrobromide') in the Active Ingredients list should be used.

The Active Ingredients list on the side of pharmaceutical products will include all ingredients which may have a strong effect on the mind or body. While some ingredients shown in an Active Ingredients lists may have recreational potential at higher-than-recommended dosages, others may be deadly. It is extremely important to know which is which. Never use a product recreationally which contains an Active Ingredient which you are not familiar with. Users should be familiar with each ingredient's possible side-effects, likelihood of allergic reaction, dose range, and overdose symptoms.

Most products will also include an Inactive Ingredients list. In general, substances in this list will have little effect on the mind or body. One exception to this is Sorbitol, a sugar substitute used in diet foods. See below for more details.

Below are two lists. The first describes some of the most common ingredients found in combination with DXM in over-the-counter products, and lists possible side effects and health hazards from ingesting high doses of these ingredients. Second is a list of more than 60 non-prescription medications containing various forms of DXM. Listed are the common active ingredients (as of 2008 in most cases) and any relevant notes or cautions. Be aware that over time, companies may change what chemicals are in a product. In other cases, products with different names have the same ingredients lists and UPC codes. Always read the label.




SPECIAL WARNING - Coricidin HBP Cough & Cold (formerly Coricidin Cough & Cold)
There are many over-the-counter products which contain DXM. Most contain additional active ingredients which are best avoided at high doses. The higher the dose, the more likely problems are. One product which has caused problems for many people is Coricidin [HBP] Cough & Cold, which contains DXM and Chlorpheniramine Maleate. If you are using DXM recreationally, avoid using Coricidin Cough and Cold as your DXM source. We have collected a few reports specifically about people's experiences with Coricidin.



INGREDIENTS
  • Acetaminophen
    • High doses of Acetaminophen can cause serious liver damage and possibly death. Symptoms of overdose may include bloody, black, or tarry stool; bloody or cloudy urine; pain in lower back and/or side; sores, ulcers, or white spots on lips or in mouth; sore throat; or unusual bleeding or bruising.
    • We have seen recommendations that no more than 4000 mg of acetaminophen be taken in a day (and no more than 2600 mg/day for long-term use).
    • ReadersDigestHealth.com

  • Aspirin
    • Symptoms of overdose may include rapid breathing, difficulty swallowing, ringing in the ears or loss of hearing, bloody urine, diarrhea, nausea, dizziness, fever, swelling of eyelids, face or lips, and convulsions.
    • Toxic Aspirin overdoses can be seen beginning at 150-300 mg/kg (10,000 mg for a person weighing 160 lb).
    • HealthCentral.com

  • Chlorpheniramine Maleate
    • High doses of Chlorpheniramine Maleate (CPM) can cause severe and life-threatening symptoms including seizures; shortness of breath or troubled breathing; weakness; loss of consciousness; severe dryness of mouth, nose, or throat; bleeding from skin, mouth, eyes, rectum, and vagina; and possibly death.
    • We have seen recommendations that no more than 24 mg of CPM be taken in a day.
    • Medline Plus Chlorpheniramine
    • Search PubMed
    • See Experiences with CPM Containing DXM Products

  • Guaifenesin
    • High doses of Guaifenesin can cause severe nausea and vomiting.
    • Because of its mucus-thinning properties, which can affect the mucus plug of the cervix, guaifenesin may contribute to an increase in the likelihood that a woman will conceive.
    • MedlinePlus

  • Paracetamol
    • See Acetaminophen (above).

  • Phenylephrine (Hydrochloride)
    • High doses of phenylephrine phenylephrine can cause hypertension and seizures. Phenylephrine has replaced pseudoephedrine as a decongestant ingredient in some cold medicine following restrictions on pseudoephedrine sales.
    • Medline Plus
    • Search PubMed

  • Pseudoephedrine (Hydrochloride)
    • High doses of pseudoephedrine can cause irregular heartbeat, headaches, difficulty breathing, anxiety, and seizures. Though some people use pseudoephedrine recreationally, there is too much pseudoephedrine in these products to use them as a source for DXM.
    • Medline Plus
    • Search PubMed

  • Sorbitol
    • Sorbitol is a sugar substitute that is used in some "sugar-free" brands of cough syrup. High doses of Sorbitol (between 10 and 50 grams) can cause gastrointestinal distress from mild discomfort to severe diarrhea.
    • MedlinePlus
