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!!!

Brand of over-the-counter medicine made by Schering-Plough HealthCare
Products. The most commonly used/abused product of the Coricidin chain is Cough and Cold, often referred to as skittles, candy, red devils, ccc, triple c's, dxm, robo-fry, robo dots, among others, describing the effects as well as the appearance of the medicine. This product is commonly abused by teenagers all over the U.S.A and is becoming yet another drug epidemic to be watched by the government. Effects include body temperature increase, nausea, vommiting, cartoon-like hallucinations, loss of memory, insomnia, paranoia, and the feeling one is physically asleep and living in a dream.
Trust me on this, I am yet another Skittlehead and have done a lot of research on Coricidin. Remember kids, research your drugs before you do them. Otherwise, your pretty much an idiotic junky. If you USE it and not ABUSE it, drugs may not be a bad thing RECREATIONALLY. This is my personal opionion and I am not representing any other person, organization, nor do I associate, represent, or affiliate myself with the Schering-Plough HealthCare Products Company or anybody else except me. So don't sue me, take two more and relax. It'll all be over soon...

Coricidin is a wholesome pharmaceutical company manufactured and marketed by the good people at Schering Plough. Although the corporate name initially denotes scythes and farm implements that rape the soil, Schering Plough has your best interests at heart. Just take far more Coricidin Cough and Cold than the "reccomended dosage" and you too will understand the healthful benefits of over the counter drug abuse.

After selling all your posessions to a pawn shop to support your ridiculous drug habit, invest in Schering Plough stock. If the good people at the FDA can turn a blind eye for money, so should you. 20 billion dollars in fraudulent sales cant be wrong.

this message was not endorsed by Schering Plough in any way and I cannot be held liable for my appropriately slanderous comments. That being said, I hope the executives burn in hell.

also contain other active ingredients which can be dangerous or even fatal in
high doses."

coricidin is also reffered to as skittles, triple c's, whities, etc. . .
if you take more than the recomended dose i guarrantee you the best trip you will ever have. that is if you like trippin balls. if you just like to get a little buzz these are not the things for you to take. trippin skittles is like a very weird dream. everything just seems so weird and different even if everything is fine. for example, one time i popped 16 of them bitches and was sitting downstairs w/ my older brother and i looked at him and was like, wat time is it? and he was like, its 7. i said. . .7? 7? is that late? its 7? 7,7,7,7,7,7, etc. and just kept saying 7 really fast for no reason. and one time when i was at school i took 20, layed my head down on the desk when i started to trip, then i felt like i was gonna throw up but in my mind i thought ppl would've thought i was weird if i got up, so i sat there and started puking up spit and was gagging real bad, then when i got done i layed my head right down in it and went to sleep. lol. they also make you walk like a duck. but if you smoke pot on top of it you'll walk like a robot and get incredibly fucked up. i've had a few ppl tell me that they never wanted to see those things again b/c they got too fucked up and it freaked them out. but i dont recomend anyone take them. they're VERY dangerous. i got hooked on them BAD. i got used to throwing up every time i took them so i made sure i was around a trash can an hour after taking them. it got so bad that i ended up having to crush them up just to take them b/c i couldn't put them in my mouth w/ out throwing up. i could look at them and gag. but anyways, DONT TAKE THEM TO GET FUCKED UP!! the high you get is from your brain swelling and the blood running down the back of your neck and spine!! its a KICK ASS trip but i'de hate to be the one to pay the consequences!
trippin on coricidin is a trip i guarrantee you will not get from anything else!
