1 doctor agrees

In brief: I tell patients

To expect no side effects.
....However dextromethorphan can cause drowsiness. More significant side effects include anxiety, slowed breathing, hallucinations all of which require attention. Hopefully it will also suppress a cough which is usually why it is prescribed. www.drugs.com has a lot of good information if you want to check it out.
