Thanks for the information

She needs to be monitored about any abnormalities of blood pressure and chest pain

She should not receive any further dextromethorphan

She should be better in next 12-24 hour

If the drowsiness gets any worse or any other symptom develop she should be taken to the ER right away

Good luck

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
