Health Canada issues cough syrup warning
March 14, 2005

Health Canada is advising consumers to avoid a generic cough syrup because it contains twice the amount of active ingredient listed on the label.

The product is sold across Canada as "Cough Syrup DM" under the following brand names: People First, PharmaChoice, Procurity Encounter, ARP Preferred, Medicine Centre, United Pharmacy and Western Family.

The cough medicine, made by Jamp Pharmaceutical Corp. in Langley, B.C., contains too much dextromethorphan.

Health Canada warns consuming the wrongly mixed medicine could result in light-headedness, fatigue and slurred speech. It also warns children under the age three may be more vulnerable to other possible adverse effects, including seizures.

The recall applies specifically to "Cough Syrup DM" with a DIN 02015781. Look for lot numbers beginning with 2J29 and 3J29.

I remember when I was little I ate a pack of sucrets I found in the bathroom cupboard. Then I said I felt funny and stopped moving until my mom carried me to bed.

And I thought they were just delicious candies...

Couldnt possibly be that much if its double dose of DXM... But i have always wondered...those machines that are mixing and (a diff machine) pressing 5mg hydrocodone into a pill and then 500mg acetominophen... I've always wondered if it ever happens to get reversed by accident. So the pill would accidentally be pressed with 500mg hydrocodone and 5mg acetominophen. I know this dosage would kill many people who just take vicodin for pain, but i have always wondered if this happens, and i keep thinking that it has to, with all the pills that are being pressed by the second....

If they can accidentally double the dose of dxm...

I'm guessing if this ever does happen, no one would really know.
