Apparently there's been a serious rise in the number of calls to Poison Control for side effects suffered by young people who've been abusing cough syrup. The reason for the abuse...no, not a resurgence in Tuberculosis. It seems that Robitussin (and other cough syrups containing dextromethorphan) can make you hallucinate.
