Infant Cough Medicine Recall: That DXT Is Way Worse Than Codeine

Another Drug War tragedy is that the US made codeine-based cough suppressant prescription-only which led consumers to take deadly DXT and doctors to be like DEA agents when prescribing codeine.

I am allergic to DXT, the substance that killed River Phoenix and that the FDA now says should not be given to young children. Codeine is safe and it works.

Every year or two I have a cough and ask my doctor for some cough medicine with codeine and get the Spanish Inquisition. In terms of how our freedom has been compromised, consider that codeine-based cough medicine used to be available without a prescription.
