Just thought id share a lil accumulated culture on this chemmie.
A friend of mine discovered this drug somehow and introduced it to our group. First time delivery method=Coricidin Cough+Cold (triple c's). It's kinda funny because we stared at the back of the bubble pack to decide which of the two chemicals made you hallucinate (DXM Hbr or Guifensen i believe was the other listed chem)(later to be discovered it's not a hallucinogen). He ate 8 of these pills on the same day our other friend and I consumed 2 hits of decent acid. (ive talked about this particular acid experience before on this board before). We all know how whilst on mind drugs, group energy is tight. (i.e. one person feels something, others feel same). He described the experience as 'much like acid but without the visuals'. curious. We went outside for some air, and i commented about how the air seemed thick. I look over at my dex'd friend and he obviously began to feel asphxyated because he was suddenly hunching over a fence so i quickly casually mentioned that the air was thick, but remarkably easy to breathe. He instantly felt better. We met a character at the location we were at who invited us to 'bomb his wall'. I signed my name, and dex boy wrote 'i was never here' which perfectly describes the dex experience imo.
This child had a small bout of dex-dependence noting that everything seemed 'okay and in place' while dexing. His dependence lasted approx. 2 weeks consuming 8-16 Cpills/day. *christ, thinking of these fucker pills is making me sick, more on that later* His addiction ended with an emotional ultra-low resulting in an overdose of common medications such as asprin and landed in the hospital. He now reports his vision to be permanently 'fish-eyed' (lens).
Another friend reports their vision to be 'pixelated to the point of obscurity'. This person was tricked by a friend of theirs and overdosed on i believe to be 22 or so CCC's. (very very bad).
I can report no permanent visual side effects, but i did have minor but vivid visual hallucinations in weeks following Coricidin doses.
Now according to the DXM FAQ, DXM blocks a certain neurological response that is responsible for associating pleasure with the consumption of said chemical. I've personally not eaten dex straight, but when someone eats C's, (also known to us as 'cherry-pickin' because of the cherry flavored tablets) they feel a profound sickness in the moments prior to consumption. This to me must certainly be my body telling me how very toxic the ad-chemicals in C's are. In the FAQ there is a mention of projectile vomiting upon very sight of a Coricidin box. I doubt this none now, but at first i thought this was very funny and impossible. Eat a lot of Coricidin, and you will know. In fact, i believe of you have eaten C's at least 5 times, the multiple mention of the name Coricidin (ugh) will probably trigger a response.
One more antecdote, i was in a particular musical ensemble that had written a song entitled '4 more-funk to the flesh' ( I didnt title it). It started off lyrically about a fantisy of a 4 girl, one man sexual orgy. Soon enough 'and most realistically' it began to refer to the inital consumption of 8 coricidin tablets and if you wanted to really get off, eat 4 more:-). Of course i would not reccomend this to anyone ever.
We came up with the two names 'cherry pickin' and 'dextromorphing'. We usually just called it Dexing tho.
Anyway the whole reason i posted this is to note none of my experiences were as mind blowing, or psychically revealing as some have mentioned. Then again I always say I could've handled more when the experience is over. (with coricidin, usually the after effects last through the next day). Whenever im fucked up, its just like, okay... Im still conscious. Too gradual. I like night and day, one of the reasons i like acid. Last I ate coricidin, i hardly felt the effects of DXM, mostly just unpleasantly warm and poisoned.
Lastly, has anyone reached their '50 trip limit' as described by the late Terrance McKenna?
Short and sweet.:-)

i've experimented with dxm and am rather impressed with it, as a cultivator & appreciator of the weird. i've had a couple typical 2nd plateau encounters, but i've also been pretty much knocked on my ass by it a few times- mostly the times when i took a third-plateau level dose of the pure compound. i find it very interesting as it still holds recondite possibilities for me- i've only taken it 5 or so times. i'm planning on playing around with it this winter after i leave off taking prescription allergy pills for a few months... so perhaps i'll add some of my musings then.

CCC is very bad for you. The Guifensen in it will make you puke until you have nothing left. Other ingredients in cough syrups can cause liver failure, and certain death. Only take Dxm in cough syrups where the ONLY ingredient is DXM Hbr. Peace.
P.S. Erowid.org, seatch for 'Robotussin'.

A person can extract the DXM from the syrup (use Robitussuin Maximum Cough, or the corresponding generic brand) using lighter fluid and then lemon juice (or maybe vice versa), not too sure of the exact recipe. End up with a shot of _HARD_ lemonade....that's what we used to call it. The onset is fast and hard.
Also if your are using CCC it's a good idea to soak the chocolate flavored skittles in warm water until all the red coating it melted off...I think that's where all the guaifenesin and other inactives are located....
I don't recommend dex myself...it's a trip but I don't really like disassociatives.

If its over the counter it isn't worth messing with. 30 years ago a pharmacist told me, "the black kids come in and buy a bottle of Robitusin and go around the corner and chug the whole thing. They leave the empties for me to clean up". The Father of this web page and the method most of us use to grow shrooms did an interview with Soft Secrets mag. in Amsterdam. He descibed DXM as a "delerium high" (how true). See Fanaticus home page Soft Secrets interview.

The deal with DXM:
If you're going to do it, always consult the ingredients of the cough syrup you're consuming. Make sure DXM is the only active ingredient. Do NOT consume anything with Guafenisin. This is an expectorant and decongestant. The body WILL throw it up if abused. Only go with cough syrups that only medicate coughs. For example, Robitussin or Vicks 44 will work, but nothing with a D or M. I've done DXM on Robitussin before and had a fantastic time. We refer to it as Robo. DXM can give you some pretty bad stomach aches, though. Don't ever take Nyquil to trip. It makes your stomach feel like it's going to explode. I feel nauseuous just thinking about it. Do not abuse anything that contains diphenhydramine. This is the active ingredient in Benadryl and Sominex; it is an antihistamine and depressant. If you take a lot of it, you will trip, but if you take too much, you will die! One time I took too much Benadryl (on purpose); it was the worst trip of my life. I felt like I was dying. I only found out later that in many ways, I was correct

I tried Robitussin DM years ago.
First time, very mild stomach discomfort, very mild trip.
I tried it about 8 times after that, almost always 8 oz. Each time there was greater stomach discomfort, which passed after progressively longer periods of time. Each time there was a greater 'high'.
The last time I did it, 8 oz again, I was laid up for nearly 2 hours because neither my my mind nor my body could deal with anything. Once that passed, I had some of the absolute most fantastic visuals ever.
I can't touch the stuff now...the odor makes me gag. Contrary to the first time, where I drank it down without a hitch.
Interesting info, thanks!

Yeah, Robo DM has a decongestant (guafenisin), that makes you either get nauseous or, most often hurl. I don't remember what the M is for, though.

I am a seasoned veteran in dextromethorphan.. used to chug Robo, Vicks, Delsym (Oh god, how lovely Delsym is).. pure powder... never coricidin.. .blech
Anyway, DXM does cause alneys lesions.
DXM does have a severe psychological addiction for me and most people Ive talked to that used it for a long time.
Do not take any MAOI's with DXM.
other than those problems, DXM is probably the most dangerous as well as the craziest, trippiest, most dissociative drug I've ever taken
(Aside from those few hits of pcp in the 80's by accident)
After a while on DXM, people just tend to get very weird and indrawn.

Well, that definatly explains my melting shower experiance. Quite a few years back, I got the flu or somethin. Felt like I was going to cough my lungs up. So...Vicks 44 to the rescue, only I kept coughing, and kept taking the 44, got the chills, and went to warm up in the tub. After about 10 min, the walls started melting, and I swear to god, I thought I was dying. Like my brain was going into shock. It was a VERY visual experiance. I think I drank 3/4 of the bottle in a two hr time frame. Wont do that again. An experiance I will never forget. My next out of body experiance shall come from my little golden beauties, if I can get some to fruit.
