Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

You are being bothered with a dry chronic cough and you are wondering if you can take a cough syrup with dextromorphan. The answer is yes. You can without any concerns. You just can't use any products that have decongestants as these can elevate blood pressure.

I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions
