New Federal Legislation Can Help Combat Teen Cough Medicine Abuse
Date:7/11/2012

"This legislation is particularly important for parents as it will help ensure the medication is less available to kids tempted to experiment. It limits a key form of ready access teens have to cough medicine and to abusing the active ingredient DXM," said Steve Pasierb, president and CEO of The Partnership at Drugfree.org.

"In a parallel effort, we are working closely with CHPA on a digital and social media-based prevention initiative targeting those teens who are actively involved in searching online or chatting for information on how to abuse DXM. By taking a holistic, integrated approach, one that includes the importance of parent-to-teen communication about medicine abuse, stresses safeguarding medicines at home, limits children's access at retail and employs innovative teen intervention strategies online, we can help curb teen abuse of over-the-counter cough medicine."

The PACT Act also places limits on the purchase of bulk (unfinished) DXM, ensuring that only manufacturers registered with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or relevant state agencies have access to DXM in its  raw form. Currently, there are no national sales or purchase restrictions for dextromethorphan in this form. 

CHPA is the 131-year-old trade association representing U.S. manufacturers and distributors of over-the-counter medicines and dietary supplements.
