Brief Answer:
Dextromethorphan

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for asking.

Spasmo proxyvon is the combination of dextromethorphan and dicyclomine used in the acute painful conditions.

It has been banned because of the abuse potential .A person using the combination before can take dicyclomine and some opoid agonist separately. There are plenty of companies making dicyclomine as a muscle relaxant agent.

Dextromethorphan is used as cough suppressants and is available both in liquid form and tablets as XXXXXXX cough lozenges.

Although I will not recommend taking these medication for long period for long period of time because of addictive potential .

Please let me know if you need more information.
