1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    The aim of this study was to investigate the Dextromethorphan (DXM) abuse side effects. Subjects were 53 volunteers who had consumed DXM with mean age 23.4 years. The mean of side effects during first day was 12.49 and during first week was 5.57. The causes of repeated DXM abuse were psychological dependency 46.5%, recreational abuse in 32.6%. Neurological and psychological symptoms were the most common of side effects in DXM abusers.
