A Lackadaisical Lexicon for Laggard Logophiles
DEXTROMETHORPHAN
[noun]
a common active ingredient found in many over-the-counter cough suppressant cold medicines - also used as a recreational drug for its often euphoric dissociative effects. Dextromethorphan has powerful dissociative properties when administered in doses well above those considered therapeutic for cough suppression. Recreational use of DXM is sometimes referred to in slang form as robo-tripping, whose prefix derives from the Robitussin brand name, or Triple Cs, which derives from the Coricidin brand (the pills were printed with “CCC”).
At high doses, dextromethorphan is classified as a dissociative general anesthetic and hallucinogen, similar to the controlled substances ketamine and phencyclidine (PCP). Like those drugs, dextromethorphan is an NMDA receptor antagonist. Dextromethorphan generally does not produce withdrawal symptoms characteristic of physically addictive substances, however there have been cases of psychological addiction.
