WHAT IS DXM?   At dangerously high doses dextromethorphan can have dissociative effects. Since the 1950s dextromethorphan (DXM) has been used primarily as a safe and effective cough suppressant ingredient and is found in many over-the-counter cough medicines. When taken according to directions, products containing DXM produce few side effects and have a long history of safety and effectiveness.

 

When abused, DXM can cause serious damage. Also, many over-the-counter medications that contain DXM may also contain other ingredients such as antihistamines, analgesics, or decongestants. High doses of these mixtures can significantly increase the harmful effects, and may for example, include potentially fatal liver injury, cardiovascular effects and over-sedation.

Health Blurbs: What Drug Overdose Means, Drug Overdose Side Affects and Symptoms

 

What drug overdose means is taking an excessive amount of a drug, either unintentionally or on purpose. Too much is often based on what’s normal or prescribed. Yet, your individual sensitivity to a drug can cause an overdose even though the amount you took is within normal or prescribed limits.

Although many who overdose recover without any long term effects, some drugs taken in excess can cause the failure of major organs or systems.
