Dextromethorphan Hbr Oral Dosage

If you are taking this product on a regular schedule and miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule. Do not double the dose to catch up.

It is important that  Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide Oral Solution is measured with an accurate measuring device (see PRECAUTIONS-Information for Patients). A household teaspoon is not an accurate measuring device and could lead to overdosage, especially when half a teaspoon is to be measured. It is strongly recommended that an accurate measuring device be used. A pharmacist can provide an appropriate device and can provide instructions for measuring the correct dose.

Promethazine HCl and Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide Oral Solution is CONTRAINDICATED for children under 2 years of age (see WARNINGS Boxed Warning and Use in Pediatric Patients ).

Dextromethorphan hydrobromide (DXM for short) is an antitussive drug that is found in many over-the-counter cold remedies and cough syrups. In considerably higher doses, DXM is a powerful psychedelic drug. (Specifically, it is a dissociative drug. The dissociatives are a major subclass of the psychedelic drugs.) It is not physically addictive, but may be psychologically addictive (see below).
