  • DMX/dextromathoraphan. Taking the regular dose isn't a problem. The kids take excesive amounts

  • Pseudoephedrine--meds with that are also behind the counter and you have to prove you are 18 and can only buy a certain amount at one time. My allergy meds have Pseudoephedrine in it and I have to sign a log everytime I buy, which is once a month for 10 months of the year.
