The trend requires people to use nighttime cough syrup as a replacement for oil when cooking chicken in a pan.

The Federal Drug Administration in the US issued a warning saying that heating any medication to such a degree could make it much more concentrated.

Another health issue is caused by the vaporised medication that the person cooking will inhale.
