|Dextromethorphan hydrobromide||0.133||Ph. Eur.|
Dextromethorphan is a non-opioid antitussive drug. The major metabolite of dextromethorphan, dextrorphan, binds with high affinity to σ-receptors to produce its antitussive activity without exhibiting the classic opiate effects that occur from binding into μ- and δ-receptors. In larger than therapeutic doses, dextrorphan is also an antagonist of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors.
