Coricidin & Triple C: Overview

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:47 by admin
Coricidin HBP Cough & Cold tablets or "Triple C" as young people sometimes refer to it, is a widely available over-the-counter cough & cold medication. Triple C contains a powerful dose of dextromethorphan, a substance related to morphine. While Triple C is safe and effective when used properly to battle symptoms of the flu, many young people are attracted to Triple C because of the high it produces when taken in large doses. Some middle schools and high schools have seen an increase in abuse of Triple C by their students. Abuse of Triple C can produce behavior similar to that experienced by alcohol and marijuana users. More ominously, many students appear to mix Triple C with alcohol and other drugs. Such mixtures can be fatal.

Seek professional help for your child if you suspect that he or she may be abusing Triple C. In addition, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
