I OD'd on 700 mg of Dextromethorphan HBr a month ago and since then I've been constantly spaced out and anxious. What could be causing this?

Many things: Dextromethorphan itself can cause a sense of anxiety. As dextromethorphan overdose is associated with seizures, it is also possible that you are experiencing a sense of being spaced out for this reason, or for some others. 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

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 have been having flu for the past five days. I took benylin 4 flu but I'm not getting better. What must I do?

I have been having flu for the past five days. I took benylin 4 flu but I'm not getting better. What must I do?

Natural remedies: Flu often lasts about a week so 5 days is normal. Benylin can help relieve symptoms but does nothing to speed your recovery. Rest and fluids are important, but high doses of Vitamin C and many herbs such as elderberry extract can be very helpful. Homeopathy can also help a great deal. See https://drrandybaker.
