General & Family Physician 's  Response
this drug is a combination of dextromethorphan,pseudoephedrine,triprolidine

dextromethorphan side effects are rare and may include dizziness and gastro-intestinal disturbances.

side-effects of pseudoephedrine include sympathetic hyperactivity such as fear, anxiety, restlessness, tremor, insomnia, confusion, and irritability.
Triprolidine may cause sedation
