Note: Acetaminophen is very deadly. DXM products which contain this substance can kill very easily. Use the following at your own risk...


Notifications of any additions or changes are welcomed. Additions will be tacked on to the end.

Included below are 80 non-prescription medications containing various forms of DXM. Listed are the active ingredients, any relative notes or cautions, and a rating of the medication. Ratings are based on the amount of DXM in the medication and if any harmful ingredients are available. Ratings range from one * to 4 *'s, with no *'s being the worst rating; if something is rated with no *'s, you should avoid taking it, probably because of the presence of Acetaminophen in the medication or very low amounts of DXM.

Most of the products found here are found in the U.S. Sorry for all Canadians. Can anyone write one for Canadians?
