Dextromethorphan is seldom a medication that we reach for with sneezing and nasal congestion due to its potential for toxicity and clinical symptoms in even the lowest dosages. We commonly witness nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, tremors, seizure and sometimes acute death. Have any other medications been tried for the symptoms aside from benadryl? Are you seeing any discharge from the nose?
