DXM and TPAPN Drug Screens

  1. 0 Hi,

    I was wondering if it's safe to take dextromethorphan containing medictions while in TPAPN- I know it's listed as a Class B drug and has to be used under the direction of an addiction specialist, etc, but will it show up in a TPAPN drug screen? I'm feeling miserable with a cold and Tussin DM works the best

    Thank you!

    i don't know the exact answer to your question- but know that when i had a bad cold- i took no chances, & took no cold meds. wasn't worth the risk for me.

    Agree with above poster - probably better to ask BEFORE taking anything.
