WARNING, if you try DXM and do anything dumb, its your own fault. Don't try to blame your actions on anyone else. I'm not listing these products here to help people get high. I'm listing them here because most people that come across this site are going to do it anyways, it's just that some people don't know enough about the ingredients to choose which ones are safer for them to use.

Here are some of the more common over the counter medicines containing DXM. If there is something other than DXM as the active ingredient and I have it listed, then I will state so. But dont take my word for this, always read the box before ever doing any of these recreationally. Just look on the side of the box for "Active Ingredients". There you should only see "dextromethorphan", "dextromethorphan HBr", "dextromethorphan hydrobromide", "dextromethorphan polystirex", "dextromethorphan polystyrex", or anything along those lines. If it doesnt say that, or has something else listed under active ingredients, then don't do it, or if you know what your doing, do an extraction. Be sure to read the FAQ before trying any of this.


Active Ingredient: DXM HBr
4oz = 354mg DXM
8oz = 708mg DXM

This is probably one of the most used products. Some have said their's contains no menthol, and some have said theirs does. If given the choice, take the one without methol. Menthol can irritate the throat, and makes some gag.


Active Ingredient: DXM HBr
4oz = 354mg DXM
8oz = 708mg DXM

This is an example of a generic equivalent of Robitussin. The ingredients are basically same as Robitussin, just cheaper, thinner, and no menthol. While CVS is a regional drugstore, and not national, you can always look around in your local drugstore for generic brands. Just check your active ingredients!


Active Ingredient: DXM HBr
4oz = 237mg DXM
8oz = 474mg DXM

This is similar to the maximum strength cough, except that it has a much more "normal" taste (strange honey taste), but it is alot thicker. Alot of people dont advise this syrup because of its thick consistancy, which makes it alot harder to take in large amounts without getting nauseas. Not too many people prefer this brand, or if they do, they usually get sick of it eventually.


Active Ingredient: DXM HBr
4oz = 237mg DXM
8oz = 474mg DXM

Some people choose this brand. It tends to be thick, nasty tasting (like most syrups) and contains less DXM than Robitussin Max Strength.


Active Ingredient: DXM Polistirex
3oz = 534mg DXM Polistirex

Most people say this is the easest to drink (taste wise), but its fairly expensive for one 3oz bottle. This syrup contains DXM Polistirex which is usually not as good as DXM HBr. This takes notably longer to kick in, takes more to be as intense, and lasts longer. For more info on DXM polistirex click here

   Robitussin Cough Gels

Active Ingredient: DXM HBr
Package = 20 geltabs
1 Geltab = 15mg DXM

This is the easiest dxm-only pills to find out there. Contains half the amount Dexalone does but easier to find. I personally would rather chug a semi-liquid syrup than eat all those lil gelcaps. (barf)

   Zicam Cough Max

Active Ingredient: DXM HBr
1 spray = 6 mg DXM
bottle ~ 300 mg DXM

This is a highly prefered way to some, because it's like a shot of DXM water (not syrupy). It is becoming harder to find.


Active Ingredient: DXM HBr
Package = 30 geltabs
1 Geltab = 30mg DXM

These pills contain only DXM and can be difficult to find. Check out their webpage for more info. Its not that great of a deal for 900mg for $12. Most pharmacies will order this product for you if you ask, and maybe even stock them on the shelves if you give them enough business.


Active Ingredient: DXM HBr
Package = 18 lozenges
1 lozenge = 10mg DXM

This is a throat lozenge that contains 10mg of dxm a piece. Some people choose this route and eat them whole, or they might try an extraction on them.
Active Ingredients: DXM HBr, chloropheniramine maleate
Package = 16 tablets
1 Tablet = 30mg DXM / 4mg CPM

Warning! DO NOT take this recreationally! The chloropheniramine maleate(CPM) has been know to cause deaths and comas when taken in large amounts. Many people have an allergic reaction to this antihistamine, and bad things happen in large amounts. This became popular because it was alot easier to do instead of downing some cough syrup. It is not recommended to take this, but if you want, check the extractions for info on removing the CPM.
