DXM (Cough Suppressant) Drug Testing

“Undercover” medications are similar to prescription medications, except they are even easier to obtain since you don’t require a physician. Some people, especially teens, are now using and abusing over-the-counter medications the same way they would an illegal drug.

The 2016 Monitoring the Future survey revealed:

  • Cough and cold medication use to get high increased has substantially among 8th graders.
  • For these teens (and adults), they use regular cough and cold medications as a means to receive high. While these medicines have a little bit of alcohol in them, it is actually the dextromethorphan (DXM) which cause the desired effects.
  • If they take way more than the recommended dose (around 10-50 times longer!), they could experience the very same effects as conventional illegal drugs.
