Yes. Take to ER now.: DXM OD can be life-threatening. Signs absolutely do include red skin, sweating, heart racing, as well as increased blood pressure, possible nausea/vomiting, lethargy/hyperactivity, slurred speech, altered mental status, even hallucinations & seizures. This drug is abused recreationally now. Your friend needs definitive medical care/observation immediately.
