Where are cough and cold medicines typically found?

There are more than 100 different over the counter drugs that contain Dextromethorphan, which is a cough suppressant, and when used in large quantities can cause a significant high. The drugs sold over the counter will come in the forms of capsules, gel caps, liquids, lozenges, and tablets. Some cold medicines are given as a prescription, and these drugs contain codeine, which can be an addictive opioid. Unfortunately, many of these drugs can be easily accessed by teens and younger people, and are commonly mixed with other drugs to increase the effects of the high.
