    What is Coricidin? Is it the name of the next president of Serbia?

  • Eagles says:

    Reported Symptoms Include: increased heart rate, elevated blood pressure, increased pupil size, drowsiness, dizziness, slurred speech, unsteady gait, hallucinations, confusion, and nystagmus (involuntary rapid, rhythmic movement of the eyeballs).
    An additional risk for teens is choosing the wrong Coricidinâ product. Some of the other Coricidinâ formulations include other ingredients such as acetaminophen (the active ingredient in Tylenol) and/or phenylpropanolamine (a decongestant). Overdoses of acetaminophen can cause liver damage. Large doses of phenylpropanolamine are toxic to the heart and central nervous system.

    Some teenagers and young adults, 13-19 -years-of-age, are deliberately ingesting large amounts of Coricidin HBP for cough and Cold; as many as 15 tablets at one time, and they get the stuff right off the shelf at the neighborhood supermarket or drugstore.
    Authorities say a growing number of teenagers are using over-the-counter cold medicines and cough syrup in excessive doses as recreational drugs –seeking what they describe as an LSD-like “high” from dextromethorphan, a non-prescription cough suppressant, an active ingredient of such products as Robitussin D and Coricidin D.

    According to the DEA. “The abusers report a heightened sense of perceptual awareness, altered time perception and visual hallucinations.” Most are discovering the practice on the Internet (Teen jargon: Dxing, Robo-trippin’ and tussin’.) or from friends at school. Because the medications can be acquired legally, there is no means for tracking the breadth of abuse.

    Dextromethorphan abuse is not new. Cold medicines have a history of being abused in an attempt to seek a cheap accessible high, but abusers often experience respiratory distress, slurred speech and hypertension.
    Large amounts of Robitussin DM and other similar dextromethorphan-containing liquids have been uncommonly abused for years. This new trend of Coricidinâ abuse (taking 12-15 tablets) is an attempt to avoid drinking four to eight ounces or more of cough syrup at one time, a frequently nauseating experience. An excessively large amount of dextromethorphan could lead to coma and death.
