I took some benylin (dextromethorphan) extra strength that had already expired. What is this going to do to me?
Nothing bad: After a certain period of time, drugs lose potency. The rate at which a drug can be expected to "expire" is generally when it reaches 90% of labeled strength. A very few drugs, especially "biologicals", may become toxic. Check with your pharmacist about this. Benylin's ingredients don't become toxic as they age (provided storage requirements such as temperature, sunlight & humidity are maintained). ...Read more

I would suggest you consult your doctor for a real work up to find out what, if any, damage the overdose may have caused. ...Read more

The sirop has a med in it that makes people drowsy. To abuse it to get high hurt you from the cause in your personality that makes you look for such a chemical. Treat your mental problem vigorously to have a better future. ...Read more
