I never developed tolerance to DXM
and many users I've heard from report not developing tolerance.
I think an alternative explanation is that you're expecting DXM polistirex to be identical in effect to an equivalent dose of DXM HBr. DXM polistirex is a time-release form of DXM. I am not going to look the patent up right now, but it takes something like 6 to 8 hours for 80-90% of DXM to be released from polistirex, whereas DXM HBr is absorbed rapidly. You also took it on a full stomach and spread your dosing out over an hour or two.
As a general rule of thumb, I find the peak effects of DXM polistirex to produce half the intensity of the effects that I'd expect from the equivalent dose of DXM HBr.
Although i did take the dose on a full stomach (Just ate a big meal) and spread the dosing out over a period of time (1-2hrs).
A friend of mine tried and extraction. A simple Cold Water extraction with 50ml of Delysm weighing out to 300mg dextromethorphan polisterix as he was doing an experiment to dissolve the plastic coating to make it more like HBr.
Could you describe the methodology of this extraction? What you're saying doesn't make much sense to me. A cold water extraction of cough syrup? So, he added water to cough medicine and filtered it, expecting what?
It is possible to release the DXM from the polistirex matrix. I have the patent describing how DXM polistirex works and how it's released. I'll find it and post the patent or at least cite the patent. If I recall correctly, in order to release the DXM, an acidic environment is required and it takes hours. Again, I have to look this up, but it requires decreasing the pH (e.g. by adding citric acid) and then waiting for hours for the polistirex to be released.
Could you maybe explain how your friend is going about this extraction? I suspect that he may not know much about chemistry and if that's the case then I doubt that he's going to be successful.

Koffex is basically the only brand of cough medicine with dextromethorphan hydrobromide as the only active ingredient which does not contain sorbitol. There are a few other brands, but they're the same cough medicine and they're made by the same company (just different names).
I think Koffex is the most horribly disgusting cough medicine ever.
Maybe I was spoiled because I generally did DXM in the 1990s. Before 2002, it wasn't difficult to find DXM-only cough syrups without sorbitol. There was one brand, which was sold only in Guardian (and IDA and was their "in house" brand). and it didn't have sorbitol in it and it tasted really good.
I find Koffex so repulsive that from the moment I purchase it to when I drink it, my heart is racing with anticipation of the horrible taste. Even if I put it in the freezer for hours to minimize the taste and it's there for hours, my heart is racing for those hours and I feel nervous. I used to think that I had a cast iron stomach and could basically ingest anything, no matter how horrible tasting or smelling with little difficulty, but not Koffex. I have found bottles of Koffex, 250 mL containing 750 mg of DXM HBr for as little as CDN$3, but I don't find it enticing.
I find Koffex absolutely horrid.
