Safeguard Your Medicine & Know What is in Your Cabinet: Over 100 OTC Products Contain DXM

stopmedicineabuse.org

Below is a list of popular brand-name over-the-counter (OTC) cough, cold, and u medicines that contain the active ingredient dextromethorphan (DXM), which is the most widely used cough suppressant ingredient in the United States. While millions of Americans rely on OTC medicines containing DXM for cough relief, some teens ignore labeling instructions and intentionally take large amounts – sometimes more than 25 times the recommended dose – to get high.

Not all forms of these brands include dextromethorphan, so it’s important to always check the Drug Facts label and look for the Stop Medicine Abuse icon to identify whether a medicine contains DXM.
