Post Robitussin
I had read that Robitussin, without the DM in the name, was safe. The sole ingredient is "dextromethorphan." Now, I'm reading about the potential adverse reactions between that ingredient and Namenda. I just gave my LO 2 tsps, the recommended dose for adults. How long will it take to see if he will have adverse reaction?

This is a great question for the prescribing MD and the pharmacist.
