Adolescent Abuse of Cough and Cold Medicine

If a parent is not familiar with the abuse of cough medicine and how it can affect a teen; they are not alone, and it is very common that many parents are not familiar with how adolescents can abuse this drug. Most cough medicine has dextromethorphan in them, which is a psychedelic drug with hallucinogenic effects, when large quantities are used. Because cough medicine is so easily accessible and is usually within most homes, it can be easy for teens to get these drugs and potentially abuse them once they discover the effects of them.
