In some people. Dm is dextromethorphan, which can act like a neurotransmitter of a stimulatory nature.
I took a regular dose (2 tsp) of non-drowsy tussin dm this morning for a cough. Am I alright to drink some beers tonight?
Yes, you can. There is no drug interaction for the tussin dm and alcohol. However, moderation is the key. If concerned, always discuss your questions with your pcp. Have fun.
No. Robitussin (guaifenesin) is Guaifenesin which thins the mucous and may help with a cough, the dm part is detromethorphan which is a cough suppressant.
Can be abused by som. It has been abused by some due to dextromethorphan ingredient and can not be used in children less than 2 years age and needs to be used with caution in children as it can be toxic if used excessively it shuld only be used for short periods and not in asthmatics and smokers cough for long periods.
Absolutely. Dextromethophan is a cough suppressant but using too much can lead to many side effects including breathing problems, visual changes, blood pressure changes, stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, sleepiness, dizzyness, convulsions, hallucinations, and more serious ones like coma in heavy doses. Minimize use following the label directions. If a cough persists, see a doctor.
