Dextromethorphan is an opioid drug that binds and acts as an antagonist of the NMDA glutamatergic receptor, which is an agonist for the sigma 1 and sigma 2 opioid receptors, and is also an alpha 3/beta 4 nicotinic receptor antagonist and has the target the serotonin reuptake pump.
This is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, where it enters the bloodstream and crosses the blood-brain barrier. On the first pass through the hepatic portal vein, some of the drug will be metabolized to an active metabolite of Dextromethorphan, Dextrorphan, or the 3-hydroxy derivative of Dextromethorphan.
