Recreational Use of Dextromethorphan

Dextromethorphan is a medication found in many cough, cold, and flu medications. It is available in both prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) drugs. If you have a history of drug or alcohol abuse, dextromethorphan may not be the best choice for you.
 
There have been cases where people abused dextromethorphan by using it recreationally for nonmedical purposes. Abusing this drug can be quite dangerous and may result in seizures, loss of consciousness, and even death. This type of abuse seems to be more common in teenagers who may use dextromethorphan to get "high."
