Triple C", sometimes also known on the street as "skittles" (due to the fact that they typically come in the form of a small red pill, similiar in appearance to the candy), comes from "Coriciden Cold and Cough", an over-the-counter cough medicine containing the drug Dextromethorphan. (Sometimes referred to as DXM)

The pills have become increasingly popular as a recreational drug due to it's legality and the high which can be obtained by taking excessive dosages (typically 8 to 16 pills, although some users take even more). Exceeding the recommended dosage (usually 1 or 2 pills) will often cause nausea, and can occasionally result in very serious injury (such as liver damage) or death.

(Note: I am a paramedic, and have seen first-hand the consequences of overdosing on DXM. This is not propaganda or myth... the last patient I hauled who'd overdosed on them, ended up in a very serious heart arrythmia which nearly caused his heart to stop. He also suffered from some permanent liver and kidney damage. Believe the warnings.)
