Have you heard of the popular term Robo-tripping? Robo Tripping is when one drinks a bottle of Robitussin (containing DXM) in hopes of hallucinating. According to SecretDrug Test "Taking such high doses of DMX is extremely dangerous. Not to mention that other ingredients found in these cough and cold medicines, such as acetaminophen, can cause liver damage, stroke, heart attack, and possible death when consumed in high doses". This is a very dangerous drug that teens or anyone for that matter should try. What do you think you can do to help prevent your teen from overdosing? Peer pressure can play a large factor in why a teen would want to try this dangerous drug. People explain robo-tripping as walking through space. Many have said it feels like everything is slowed down and they love the feeling. You can stop your child from doing this by simply using the best cell phone spying software to monitor their mobile device.
According to Addiction hope Statistics show:
· In 2006, about 3.1 million persons aged 12 to 25 (5.3 percent) had
ever used an over-the-counter (OTC) cough and cold medication to get high (i.e., “misused” the drug), and nearly 1 million (1.7 percent) had done so in the past year .
· According to the Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) for 2004, an estimated 16,858 emergency department (ED) visits involved pharmaceuticals containing dextromethorphan (DXM). This was just under 1 percent of all drug-related ED visits .
· Among youths aged 12 to 17, females were more likely than males to have misused OTC cough and cold medications in the past year, but among young adults aged 18 to 25, males were more likely than females to have misused these medications .
· The rate of emergency room visits resulting from non-medical use of DXM for those aged 12 to 20 was 8.0 visits per 100,000 population, compared with 2.5 visits or fewer per 100,000 for other age groups .
