Chlorpheniramine maleate is an antihistamine. It counters the effects of too much histamine that your body makes when it has been 'attacked' by allergens like pollen or by a virus like a cold or the flu.

What is Coricidin?

Coricidin, or CoricidinHBP (for high blood pressure), is the name of a drug marketed by Schering-Plough that contains dextromethorphan (a cough suppressant) and chlorphenamine maleate (an antihistamine). Varieties of Coricidin may also contain acetaminophen (an analgesic/fever reducer) and guaifenesin (an expectorant). The drug is marketed as a remedy for the common cold, especially for people with hypertension, whose high blood pressure may worsen if they take other decongestants. Coricidin Cough and Cold is commonly taken recreationally because it contains Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide which when taken in large doses produces dissociative or psychadelic effects. The average dose is 6-16 pills (the box says dont ingest more than 4 in one day) and ive read of doses of up to 64 pills in a single day. Dextromethorphan alone is not particularly dangerous to most people until reaching amounts much higher than any typical recreational dose. Coricidin Cough and Cold contains an antihistamine as well called Chlorphenamine Maleate. This is the stuff which makes Coricidin dangerous. Many people have had moderate - severe adverse reactions to large amounts of Chlorphenamine Maleate absorbed when the pills are taken, and alot of people have died from overuse.
