Overview

Abatuss DMX is a medicinal syrup used to treat coughs associated with colds and allergies. Its primary component, Dextromethorphan, works as an antitussive, targeting the brain’s cough center to diminish the urge to cough. 

Suitable for adults and older children, it provides effective relief from dry, non-productive coughs. Abatuss DMX is typically available over-the-counter and is valued for its efficacy in improving respiratory comfort during colds and allergic reactions.
