I was talking to my brother and my 15 year old nephew "Overdosed" yesterday (he's OK) on DXM (dextromethorphan) based Robitussin (mixed with Medicated Sucrets). Anyone know, if it is that common now. When I was a teen the only kids I knew who swilled Robitussin or Nyquil for the Alcohol content were the kids that were pretty much alcoholics but could not get their hands on beer or pot and this was their next step for the desperate, the kids after the weekend beer high did not take that path??? Or is this something totally new and the DXM connection to Alchol just something I have stuck in my head,and it has nothing to do with the Alcohol??? Now the fact that my nephew was the "Ring Leader" of the outing for his group of 4 friends pretty much has me thinking that he needs some type of drug conseling now (he wasn't just trying to keep up with his friends and keep cool, he was leading the charge). My Sister-In-Law is of the mind that he dosen't need the counseling, "he isn't a drug addict". I figure that the trigger in his brain has obviously gone off, keeping him grounded for 6 months is not going to prevent his desire to get high somewhere. And maybe counseling may help nip this in the bud???
