Adverse Effects

Phenylephrine: At usual doses, a reflex bradycardia, CNS effects (excitement, restlessness, headache) and, rarely, arrhythmias are seen. Blood pressure must be monitored to prevent hypertension.

CPM: Most commonly seen adverse effects are CNS depression (lethargy, somnolence) and GI effects (diarrhea, vomiting, anorexia). The sedative effects of antihistamines may diminish with time. Anticholinergic effects (dry mouth, urinary retention) are a possibility.

Dextrometorphan: The drug hardly causes typical opioid side-effects. High and very high doses in particular can cause neuropsychiatric symptoms (euphoria, restlessness, misperception, hallucination, schizophrenic reactions) that are similar to the effects of the hallucinogenic agent phencyclidine. It has not been established whether these problems are related to the metabolic phenotype of the individuals. Besides that, there are gastrointestinal symptoms and skin reactions. The most immediate risk arising from dextromethorphan seems to be its sporadic abuse. A few cases of addiction have been recorded.
