Definition


Dextromethorphan is an antitussive medication intended to combat irritated coughs, but it is also used recreationally (under the name DXM). From a medical standpoint, it is used to fight dry coughs and it is over 120 mg per day that it becomes psychotropic. Generally, it is recommended to take dextromethorphan at the end of the day in order to avoid its possible side effects (behavioral troubles).
