Hello everybody, I was wondering if anyone seen Dateline on TV 3-26-04, and the issue about dextromethorphan. I guess the claim is, people are somehow misusing the drug and it has caused 12 deaths.
Its a common ingredient in over the counter cough medicine. My doctors prescribed this for me to help desensatize the nervous system.
This med has helped my rsd from becoming worse, and I have had no issues with the med.
People should realize any medication whether over the counter or prescribed by a doctor, if not taken directly as written, it could cause a overdose.
Lets not blame the medication, BUT BLAME THE PERSON WHO IS MISUSING IT.
