An Over-the-Counter drug containing 30 mg of dextromethorphan and 4 mg of chlorpheniramine maleate. The common misconception is that Corocidin and DXM are interchangable, the truth is that pure DXM is not found over-the-counter. Chlorpheniramine maleate is an antihistamine that causes drowsiness, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and loss of appetite, which can often counteract the high desired. When taken in large doses (often required to produce the desired high), the liver cannot break down the chemicals quickly enough (due to the fact that the same enzyme controls the breakdown of both chemicals in coricidin), and will cause poisoning. Often times, after several uses, a user will find that Coricidin has a negative effect upon the user. Hospitalizations and death have resulted in overdoses of Coricidin.
Woah this coricidin is so cool.....OW, MY LIVER!!!
