Florida joins nine states in restricting DXM access to adults

BY Michael Johnsen
WASHINGTON – Florida recently became the 10th state to restrict the sale of cough medicines containing dextromethorphan to adults over the age of 18, a move lauded by industry. 
 
“Florida is the tenth state to pass a law addressing the issue of cough medicine abuse among teens,” stated Scott Melville, president and CEO for the Consumer Healthcare Products Association. “Florida will join states across the country that have acknowledged that limiting teen access to DXM is an effective way to prevent abuse. We are assured that this legislation will empower parents to prevent abuse among their children, while continuing to ensure access for the millions of families who responsibly use products containing DXM to treat common cough symptoms.”
 
According to the 2015 National Institute on Drug Abuse’s annual Monitoring the Future survey, one in 30 teens abuses OTC cough medicine containing DXM to get high.
