View Full Version : DXM Scraps & Redundancies
Yes, it really sucks ass.
Well, I have roboflipped three times. My first time doing it, I had an absolutely horrible experience on it. Ended up bad tripping. Then again I drank 6oz. of Robo my first time (should have stuck w/ just 4oz.), so I have a feeling that may be why. Next two times I flipped, I drank 4oz. bottles and had a wonderful time. I would say it all depends on your surroundings and mind set going into the flip. It's definitely an experience unlike no other.
"How the fuck do you feellllll?"

ive visited the dextro realm (4 0z. both times) on two occasions...and my consensus is for the most part it sucks ass. It had an xtc feel to it the first time. the second time i spent most of the time on the toilet.......sure i looked great the next day..i was totally ripped but no enlightening visions or great theorizations came out of it..
but you have to give everything at least three chances so im sure i'll probably do it again before i die
I've done some pretty high dose experiments with it, and I will tell you that I have always found it both enjoyable and enlightening.
From my experience, the best thing is just to puke when you get nauseaus and then it will clear up. Also, staying relatively still on the higher doses will keep the stomach from churning too much.
One of the reasons I think less people find DXM to be profound is because of the dissociative amnesia. Basically, every time you bring your wandering thoughts to the conscious attention of the Self, they disappear as if they were never there, leaving you with an incomplete feeling. You can learn to combat this by letting the thoughts flow through to their confusion without interruption, often, you'll find yourself at the end of the experience with either an absolute sense of what ego-less experience is like, or with some grand conclusion that you can look at later, when you've come down.
The dangers from dissociative use are very real, and DXM is one of the more toxic drugs. If this wasn't the truth I'd probably use this drug a lot more often.
Just my thoughts
What is freedom? I don't know anymore. Its something so far removed from anything I've ever experienced that I'm not sure I can even comprehend it. Make Freedom A Reality
No, DXM doesn't suck ass.
It fucks ass. (That's good, right?)
Just make sure you have some high-grade herb around you, and easy smoking method that won't start fires easily (chillum, pipe, what not)
yup, it mixes nicely with weed.. some people say they only hallucinate if they smoke weed with it. the combination with K is incredibly messed up. one time i mixed the two in a dark, silent room, and proceeded to watch the universe end to a trance score. i mean *watch the end of the universe* in great detail, stars and galaxies collapsing and exploding in vivid, realistic color.
i've had other 'inflight movies' on DXM, including travelling through a city of tunnels and huge buildings in a train or car.. they tend to be thematic and last several minutes.
Yea, 'thematic' is a good word for D-trips, Roches.
One time I 'woke up' (I had been awake tripping) in a puddle of ooze (me) on the floor. (340mg, hopefully not an Olney dose.)
I've done DXM a few times...I'll summarize each experience below...
1st DXM Trip - it was me and a good friend, at his place...we did 2 4oz bottles each. We got the stuff down easy enough (I guess partly because we had no idea how bad it would taste and what effect it would have on our stomachs.) After downing both bottles we sat down in his room and put on our respective discmans, figuring music would take our minds off the taste and mild stomach discomfort.
My colleague says he didn't get much outta the music...me, OTOH, found it to be quite enjoyable. At one point I could distinguish and seperate each individual sound I heard. I had a much deeper connection with the music, and it was generating positive and happy thoughts. (On a side note I think listening to music really helped us settle...I don't remember having any stomach pain or discomfort while listening to the tunes.)
About an hour after ingesting the liquid we talked for a bit...I remember talking about this story idea I had about the merging of God and Lucifer (don't ask.) There were also two discernable points where I got this rush (for lack of a better word) of extreme happiness. It was really something...I wanted everyone to feel exactly as I did. I don't remember much of what I said, but my friend later told me I said something like "I'm on a direct hotline with God."
About 1 1/2 - 2 hours after ingesting my friend decided to call someand and invite him over. At first I was hesitant about this idea...even got me a little paranoid. In an instant though my feelings changed on the matter...I wanted to interact with this person while under the effects of DXM. Eventually the doorbell rang, and when I tried to get up I fell right back to the floor. After a few minutes I tried again, and mustered just enough strength to stumble into the bathroom.
I must have blacked out, because the next thing I know I am sitting on the bathroom floor, and see a considerable amount of vomit in the toilet. I assume it must have been mine, because later on (when asking about this) my friend said no one else had gone into the bathroom but me. It's freaky though because I have no memory at all of puking that much crap up...
The remainder of the trip had me crawling to and from the bathroom (to vomit) and the living room. I must say it was the strangest sensation...robowalking that is. When I did manage to actually stand up and walk it felt as though I was skipping through time. That is, if I walked a distance that normally took 10 seconds to accomplish, I would feel as though I was doing it in only 3-4 seconds.
Eventually it started to die down...I remember for the 2 hours or so before I left my friend's house I had this annoying double vision...I would have to really concentrate and focus to make anything into just one image. Luckily it went away to an extent where I could drive home.
Overall my first DXM experience was wild...it was my 2nd drug done (first being green.) The puking wasn't fun, but the overall sensation and feeling of the trip is something I will not soon forget.
2nd DXM Trip - this was with two friends...and we had green this time.
Me and the guy mentioned in the account above did 1 1/2 4oz bottles...our female companion did 1 4oz bottle. About an hour after ingesting we decided to smoke some green (to both heighten the trip and eliminate any stomach discomfort.) Even though I think it was more difficult getting the syrup down this 2nd time around, I didn't get much pain at all, and I don't think I vomited during the entire trip.
Anyways we all took some pipe hits...about an hour + 1/2 after ingesting (plus the smoking) we decided to lie down and just talk to one another. It was a very interesting experience...I felt a deeper emotional connection with my fellow trippers. (They later said the same thing.)
From what I remember we spent the majority of the trip just sitting and talking...I know we had some pretty bizarre conversations (including one about liquifying dead people which I'm still trying to make sense of.)
Overall this was a great trip. I think the green really had a positive effect. Although there was less "otherworld-liness" than the first trip, this one was more social. Even though I have always aimed for the higher plateaus this trip showed me lower level ones can be fun too.
3rd DXM Trip - I was with the same two people this time. The female tripper settled on 1 1/2 4oz bottles, while me and the other guy decided to go big and do 2 1/2 4oz bottles. Like last time we got the stuff down (and let me tell you...2 1/2 bottles is TOUGH.) IIRC we waited about 10 minutes and started hitting the pipe. About an hour after ingesting (and several hits each) we all found a comfortable place in the room, sat down, and relaxed. Like last time we planned to just sit and talk, and see where the trip took us.
We didn't do much talking though. From what I remember it seemed I was shifting into other realities...one moment I would be in the room with the other two trippers, and the next I would be somewhere else entirely. I remember one of the realities was on a ship in the middle of the ocean. Another was either in my old high school or in my current place of employment (it could have been both...my memory of this trip is somewhat hazy.)
In any event I spent what must have been 3-4 hours in this trance, going back and forth between the realities my mind was creating and the real one. I know at one point, while jumping back and forth, I was trying to distiguish which reality was real...I can vaguely remember asking people, in each reality, if it was really real or not. Wild stuff.
Eventually we all recovered...both my friends can't remember a thing about the trip. Sucks for them. This is the closest I have ever gotten to the 4th plateau...if nothing else this trip psyched me up for a true 4th plateau trip, like the ones I read about on the net.
4th DXM Trip - This was with the same two people as in the 2nd and 3rd above trips. I'm pretty sure I decided on 2 4oz bottles...I think the guy did 2 also and the girl did just 1. Immediately after ingesting the syrup (this was by far the most difficult 2 bottles to get down) we all started taking bong hits (mainly because all of us were feeling stomach pain...me and the other guy moreso though.)
About an hour after ingesting we had all taken about 4-5 hits...I thought it would be enough to mask the pain and discomfort that I knew was still there. I was wrong.
About 5 minutes after putting away the bong I rushed to the bathroom and began puking. In all I must have puked like 15 times, over an hour or so period. I remember sitting there in the bathroom floor, feeling the layers of sweat on my head, and trying not to choke on my own vomit. It was definitely a very unpleasant experience. (I also remember seeing the other guy puking into a wastebasket several times...guess it was too much for him too.)
After about an hour and a half of hell in the bathroom I went back into the bedroom, hoping to relax and salvage something positive in this trip. It was not to be though, as I got one of the worst headaches in my life while everyone else was sleeping (not long after I came out of the bathroom I think we all considered the trip to be a bust, so we all decided to just get some rest.)
Overall a negative experience, and that's putting it lightly. I admit I am a bit reluctant to do DXM again (I haven't done it since) although I think the syrup is the reason for my hesitation...the stuff seems to taste worse every trip.
In any event, when all is said and done I would recommend DXM...when everything goes well the trip can be really spectacular. I would though recommend having some green present to alleviate the stomach pain (more bottles = more green.) Also try not to eat anything for at least 8 hours before the trip. If memory serves correctly that 4th disaster trip was the only time I had a meal within 8 hours of ingesting the syrup.
When all is said and done though, I'd recommend doing DXM at least once. Just make sure that first time is done right, or you'll be sorry.
Ok, can some blulighting higher-ups clarify what this thread (and ones like it) are about? This thread read "DXM, does it really suck ass?" and I expected positive and/or negative effects occurring prior (e.g. nervousness about drinking nasty-ass cough syrup) during, and after the drug experience.
If it takes a little explanation, go ahead, but it seems like this thread began turning into a place for trip reports.
Is this type of thread for trip reports, or simply the most important information [that you can remember or explain in English words] from your drug experiences?
i LOVE robotripping. ive done it tons of time and ive loved it every time. just give it a try, what do you have to lose?
i think robotripping id fucking cool...i dont over do it...i do like once a month sometimes i wait longer....but i think its cool to down some robotussin and smoke a joint http://www2.bluelight.ru/ubb/smile.gif it seems to kick in much better with some herb...much smoother http://www2.bluelight.ru/ubb/smile.gif but just thought i would post my 2cents
i pop 4 e's at one time, and i dont need water when im swallowing mine-D12
DXM kicks ass, i first did it about a month ago and about 6-7 times since then. I completely lost it on my first time, after smoking marijuana at the peak of a 600mg trip. I lost all motor control and was convinced that i was never going to regain it. Ive noticed that plenty of my friends that ive introduced DXM to havent really enjoyed a 1-2nd plateau dose...i myself find a 1st plateau dose to be nothing more than an annoying buzz. I suggest that if you're gonna try DXM, do about a 450-500mg dose and have some weed on hand. Oh and also xanax has helped me heaps on dxm whenever i feel like i cant handle it.
Thanks for the info everyone it was very helpful.
I LIKE PORK!
Just to throw in my two cents, DXM does have some very redeeming qualities. All of my experiences with it were positive, except for one instance involving a reality check (unexpected emergency which required that I act sober and responsible, which I pulled off with a great deal of effort..) during an 800mg peak.
One way to avoid negative experiences is to get pure powder and avoid going near any nauseating cough syrups.. Another is to have a dark place to lie down with music. This kind of atmosphere lends itself best to the DXM experience.
Just because DXM is OTC, it does not mean it is a shitty high. I feel like some of the most significant trips in my life have been on DXM.
i agree with ^ the dude above me, dxm is an ill drug if u treat it right, moving and shit can make u naseus, def gotta have herbs cause it makes the trip like 1000000 times better, seriously.
Once some friends and I decided it would be a a great idea to mix DXM with LSD. That was just about the wierdest shit I've ever experienced in my life. I found it enjoyable mostly but one of my friends kinda freaked out and started getting stuck in these wierd ass holes.
One thing I've noticed though is that now when I take it I tend to get really bad bodily reactions. Mostly my heart pounds so hard I'm afraid my chest will explode. That only happened with 8oz though. The trip part was cool however. I was in my bed then all the sudden I was in my car driving down the freeway. I t was so real I actually thought I was there. When I started jumping bewtween that world and the real world and I realized it was in my head, that's when it really got fun. Since it seemed completely real when I was in my car, I would purposely drive really fast then crash into oncomming cars or telephone polls! Fucking intense but cool. There was also a time when I was flying over tree covered mountains, I didn't have time to enjoy that as much though because I was too busy forcing myself to try to puke the shit out of me cause I was feeling pretty damn ill at the time.
suttle like a T-Rex..
and I haven't even started yet, one week on the road and I'm already wrecked"~MCD
in my top 10 list of favourite drugs, ketamine and dextromethorphan are numbers one and two..
i guess it depends on the person.. some people like being dissasociated from their bodies, and some dont.. id assume the people who dont outnumber those who do, cuz there alot of kids badmouthing the shit on this forum..
all i can say is try it, be reasonable, and be safe..
Your thougts on dextromethorphan aka DXM. Bad, good, your first expierences - hell, even if you've never tried it, what are your impressions of it?
Me, I love it, I like it as much as ketamine and shrooms, I find it to be a very useful tool like marijuana to ketamine. Just because it happens to have another tool of reducing cough doesn't effect my thouhts upon the drug in the least.
For those who enjoy use, how long do you use?
And have you had any adverse effects from your DXM usage. Lets be honest. =)
I try to keep my dosing in the 900mg area and about twice a week maybe even longer, hopefully.
[ 06 September 2002: Message edited by: goodkarma ]
twice a week is just a little often to be using it in my opinion.
I've had some wonderful DXM experiences that were fully as powerful as LSD or mushrooms, however, I always had a pretty hard time with the amnesia. It felt pointless, because so much of what I thought about was lost.
Oops did I say twice a week, I meant once every 2 weeks, not even. But yea I hear your PuristLove, thats why after I trip I tend to write a 'trip report' as soon as I can (usually when coming down). I find that to be the best and most helpful thing to remember, writing. thanks for sharing.
bmp to the top
I've had some amazing experiences on DXM. One time I fully left my body and it was one of the craziest experiences of my life. Also, experiencing time SLLOOOOOWWWW down to the point where it stops and then starts going in reverse (on a VERY high dose) is pretty insane.
Laying on my bed with trance music blasting and getting into a state where I lose all connection with reality (in the dark) and feel as if I'm levitating is pretty amazing also. :)
DXM took me the furthest from reality any drug had taken me till I did Salvia and a very high dose of Shrooms. DXM is some powerful stuff and doesn't get as much respect as it deserves.
^^^ I agree with you totaly.
But it seems that I am having a tolorence effect to it. I took 4oz and pretty much the usual, but nothin great like I usualy get. This is after a break for after about a month. I dunno, maybe I should take more?

i fell into doing DXM almost two years ago. did it about 5-6 times. enjoyed it. quickly discovered that there are better drugs (for me) out there.
i'd probably do it again if i had the powdered form...and it was free...and i was bored
but no more coughsyrup for me
Id have to say the same exact thing. I loved it but the syrup was too much to do regulary. Now that capsules are being sold I might try that once.
I don't know if I like it or if I don't, frankly.
I mean, most of the times I somehow manage to chug down a bottle of this disgusting cough syrup, it makes me feel pretty sick for about an hour, then the hallucinations start, but I still have that bad feeling in my stomach ...
I wish this was available in pills, but I mean something like 100 mg DXM pills. Not those 30 mg pills ... you'd need to take 20 of those to get seriously high on it, I might try it again.
Dunno. The body load is too strong to make it a pleasureful experience.
for me i absolutly love DXM. I have only triped about 1/2 a dozen times, not because i don't want to trip more, it is just when i triped it was such a beautiful setting, and with beautiful people, and i had the best time in my life.
I almost keep DXM for those "special" times, if i could i would trip every second week, but i think it would lose something.
i laugh at people who flame DXM, i love the substance, and b/c it is found in cough medicine doesn't mean it is less of a drug. It is just a great legal way to aquire a great drug.
DXM doesn't get a lot of respect but for me i dont't really care. I love DXM and some close friends love DXM, and when it is just us, tripping, loving life, and having a great time, that's all that matters.
Point of post: Early morning rabmling. thanks :D
p.s. great pick me up on DXM, listen to
psyclobe - DXM it is great!

I have never tried Dex-alone, i have just done my own extractions, but let me ask this-and prove me wrong if i am-couldnt you just open the capsuls, and combine them to make 5 large capsuls.
At herbal stores, you can buy herbs that come in 200mg capsuls. Just dump out the herbs and dump in 6 30mg capsuls in there. Just a suggestion. Any comments on this or my bad typing and grammar :D
DXM ~ I like the way it makes me feel. I used to always do it alone, but just this week I tried it with my boyfriend, my best friend, and another friend of my boyfriend's and we had fun. We would just lay down and close our eyes in complete silence and just see our minds float away into what we would call 'five minute dreams,' or maybe you would call them 'visuals'? but anyhow, every five minutes or so we would snap out of it and look at eachother and then somehow get dazed off again for a new 'five minute dream.' the funny thing is that this lasted several times for about 8 hours.
Anyway, just my words and to answer I will use about once every two months or whenever I get a cough/cold symptoms...whichever comes first. I usually will be sick, take some medicine, trip, sleep when I get tired, wake up and be fine. It doesn't always work though, because I have a cough right now. *gets cough drop*
Oh yeah, and the cough syrup doesnt really bother me. I guess it all depends on the user's belly...
At what dosage do you folks like your DMX?
I've gone from 200-600mg and wuld like to maybe go higher cept at 5-600mg I just go into a sort of daze where the trip passes by uneventfully...
I also often get completely delusional and otherwise "wacked" on the stuff and wind up in an unhealtyh and weirded out mindframe...
Sometimes tho I've felt like I had "figured it out" or whathaveyou, but can't remember what I had figured out afterward..
I have been very impressed with the high-resolution "photography" style closed eye imaging that it can give me...
DMX fogs my mind out pretty bad for about 2 days afterward...
Would rather take ketamine by a long shot, although I have yet to take above 600mg DXM and so I can't compare i suppose since I'd do the typical 100mg IM K back in the day and get the full experience...

I believe DexAlone is gellcaps, and the total mass is more than 30g per capsul.

True, OTC cough preperations used to contain heroin instead.
"Also, experiencing time SLLOOOOOWWWW down to the point where it stops and then starts going in reverse (on a VERY high dose) is pretty insane."
i felt a mild time slow down, say half as fast.time only reversed at one point by a few min back. maybe I just couldnt read the numbers on the clock well I guess. I have alot of the effects you guys described. some CEV and mini dreams
Oh shit, he's back.
I've disliked DXM more everytime I've done it. The day after feels like I took a huge spiked penis to my brain and let it cum hydrochloric acid all inside. For hours.
Did it once... produced a slight drunkeness with a "dryed out" feeling to my skin
don't do dexalone
it works, but trust me taking that many gelcaps doesn't sound like alot until you actually go through it. for a good 6 months afterwards i could barely swallow any pills at all...
and they give you way bad gas
Loved DMX, but just stopped doing it for a while, don't know why? It's always been a great experience for me, floating on my bed with my soul getting ripped from me. Awesome! CC you back again? If yes, please leave! Thanks
I tripped on DMX for the first time recently. 6000mg dose. I hate this stupid stupid drug. Why anyone would want to put their bodies through that is beyond me. Maybe for a first time it was a bit much, but after that, I'll never touch that drug again!!
Please tell me you really did not do 6000mg... I would question your ability to be alive right now.
More like 600mg?
I'm sorry. It was 600mg. And to be honest, when I wrote that last night, it was my first time. I'M STILL FUCKED UP!!!!! Why????? This sucks. My skin was on fire, I couldn't stop puking, and when I did puke, I thought my insides were going to come up as well. I had a horrible time. I just can't see how someone could enjoy such agony. To each their own I guess.

Dxm is heaven. You just dont know how to use it properly.
I think DXM is a great escape from reality. But it's not something you should do without knowing about it first. *Coricidin BIG nono* It's like time stops and you're in another life where normal things don't make sense, and the absurd seems to be natural. (on high doses) I myself enjoy lower doses much better, because sometimes I just want to feel trippy but still have my feet on the ground. (as opposed to rolling around on the floor moaning "This is wwwoonnndderful...") As far as forgetting what your thoughts were while tripping, I experienced that alot, so I had my "tripsitter" write down alot of what I said and did. Also another time, when I tripped alone (not smart, I know) I recorded myself on video...very interesting 90 minute movie. But I think this is a very intellectual drug, and if it didn't have so many side effects (itching, nausea etc.) it would be my favorite.
i've had two experiences with dxm....
the first time i took it, my parents went away and i had a party at my house. nothing big, just a few of my friends. i started to trip and then my sister and her boyfriend came home. and then a couple of old friends came over (i invited them, but i didn't expect them to come). since i didn't want my sister or my old friends to see me in that state, i went to bed. but it was pretty awkward because the party was still going on... my friend said later, "don't worry about what they think, it's just too bad you didn't have a good trip." which i agree with.
the second time was perfect. there were two of us using my friend's apartment. (she had gone away). and it was a beautiful night... everything was so calm and my mind was so clear. i felt like everything was real except me... i was an observer, but everything was happening without me actually being there (i guess that's the dissociative part)...
anyway, yes... dxm if a wonderful drug... but definitely watch out... it messes with your brain.
I never did it
but was thinking about it
does it really mess up your brain ? I mean, isnt that one of those myths ? like , pot kills your brain cells , ecstasy gets you all holed in your brain...... are there scientific facts behind this statement?
[quote]DXM is heaven.You just don't know how to use it properly.
It was my first time, but i thought it was realitvely easy to swallow the pill. I just flat out did not like the drug. Maybe you do. It wasn't for me. It really wasn't pleasn't. Now there could be several reasons for this. I could be missing an enzyme in my body that allows me to break down that chemical. Or I could just be allergic to it. Several of my friends had a miserable time on that drug as well. Just because you like it, doesn't mean everyone has too. I am glad for you, that you have found something that makes you so happy. I personally think that the drug sucks ass. Plain and simple.

DXM was my favorite until i tried ketamine. I have had the strongest most profound trip that ive ever experienced from DXM. Its a wonderful substance if used safely and properly.
i once loved dxm but once a week for 4 consecutive weeks (last one 3/4th platau) realy funked up my brain. ill probibly do it again, but not for some time.
[quote]Originally posted by brazilian vibe:
does it really mess up your brain ?
i think i stoped using dxm because the after effects on my brain where harder than anything iv done before.
how does 1 take DXM? What cugh syrup is best and how much do you take? What pills are out on the market to bypass the cough syrup? How much of a does with the pills?
I started off using dxm very slowly and greatly enjoyed it. I think because I started with low doses of 3-5 mg/kg, the effects on my body and mind weren't as discouraging, letting me progress to a point where I was using quite frequently and using doses from 9-12 mg/kg.
I used in that range on average four times a week for a little less than two months. During that time I basically quit going to school and it hurt my relationships with friends. Not to mention my head turned into a pile of mush for about three months after I started to taper off and finally quit using. It's not that I couldn't remember things, the chatter in my head just wasn't there like it was before.
Now I rarely use and when I do it's no where near what it used to be. I have a lot more negative side effects now, like itching and vomiting that I didn't have before. While I was on it though I loved it. I think people just underestimate the experience that "cough syrup" is going to give them, dissociation is hard to deal with if you're not familar with it.
Ok. I've been reading about DXM all morning and I really want to try this.
How much of a dose is good for a first-timer? 400mg? Would it be wiser to take this over the course of an hour to lessen the nausea? Or will the effects dwindle if you don't take the doseage all at once?
I should buy Robotussin Extra Strength Cough right? Since DXM is the only active ingredient?
The high lasts for about 6-8 hours? Is this a constant high? Or does it fluctuate?
I've never done acid or shrooms...just E and pot, so what type of setting should I set up for myself?
Any other info would be appreciated.
^ in response
all the info you need is on erowid. 4oz is a good startin point. or maybe half that? who cares chug that nasty shiz.....
