    Yea very bad idea man. They have more active ingredients than just dextromethorphan (DXM). What you want, is an over the counter cough medicine that has only dxm in it. Robitussin maximum stregnth cough syrup is one good choice and the cough gels are too. Just check on the back under the active ingredients and make sure it only contains DXM. If its your first time, I would recommend taking like 350-400mg, thats what I took his first time and he enjoyed it.

    DO NOT TAKE CCC!!!! Tripple C has many other active compounds that can really be of harm. If your looking to trip off DXM get something like normal extra streignth robotussin (Not Robotussin DM or whatever extras they put on there) or an off brand cough surrup, Just make sure that the only active ingredeant is dextromethorphan hbr.

    Now as far as dosing goes:

    Oral DXM Dosages

    Threshold unknown
    Light 100 - 200 mg
    Common 200 - 400 mg
    Strong 300 - 600 mg
    Heavy 600 - 1500 mg
    Risk of Death 2,500 - 20,000 mg 1

    SWIM usally just drinks a full bottle to SWIM's self and that enouph to get going.

    Do not take them. CPM in such high doses can cause SEVERE side effects. It is extremely hazardous to take Coricidin in recreational doses. "High doses of Chlorpheniramine Maleate (CPM) can cause severe and life-threatening symptoms including seizures; shortness of breath or troubled breathing; weakness; loss of consciousness; severe dryness of mouth, nose, or throat; bleeding from skin, mouth, eyes, rectum, and vagina; and possibly death." From this article on Erowid.Edited by: PenguinPhreak

    robitussin cough gels. the dosage is twice as much, so 20 of them is the same as 10 ccc its way safer.

    Don't take coricidin in recreational doses...you can die


    everyone has said that





    however I found 2-3 coricidins along with a recreational dose of DXM will completely eliminate the itching, redness and hives which I normally get on DXM. So i get the anti-histamine plus a bit of extra DXM. And 2-3 will really do no harm (4/24hrs is the box's recommended dose to not exceed). Just stick the rest in a drawer and only use a few for each trip.

    okay

    i'm gonna say something people don't agree with

    but take the ccc's. if you've already bought them or stolen them or
    however you obtained it-it's worth trying. doing recreational doses of
    ccc's IS bad for you, but the extra active ingredient makes your heart
    speed up, and actually intensifies the trip for me.

    in my opinion i've already taken so many chemicals
    that have much worse long term and short term effects that I could
    really care less about the harmful effects of CCC's. It's exhilerating,
    and when I ate an entire box which is 480 I was not expecting to trip
    nearly as hard as I did.

    Drinking one 8 ounce extra strength which is 540
    feels about half as strong as the CCC's to me, and doing CCC's every
    once in a while really isn't that bad unless you're eating an absurd
    amount of the little things. If you want to pursue the CCC's you have
    to work up to a box though, and I would never recommend taking more
    than that, and I wouldn't recommend taking it more than once a week
    because of the health risks.

    But CCC's are really fun, and they last a lot longer for me, it just takes a while for them to hit you

    ^^Not really trying to diss ya but, thats fuckin retarted. The other active in triple c's(CPM i beleive), can be fatal at very low doses for some, ive heard as low as 15mg's, while others can take an almost endless amount. To me since a good source of plain dxm is cheap and legal, its no where near worth the risk. And your right, im guessing almost nobody will agree with u on that, i would rather not trip at all. Please for all of our sakes (especially the inexperienced) dont give out such fucking stupid advice.

    harsh... and straight blamage coulda been avoided... but i do agree mostly... that is very wrong information to give out...



    its your life at stake if taking the wrong box of stuff is better worth
    it than just going and getting the right stuff then i guess so be it...
    have fun...



    and the post above this is randomly funny lol

    first off, i never said just go out and eat an
    entire fucking box of them if you've never tripped, you have to work up
    to them, starting out at under half a box, somewhere around 6. And I
    seriously doubt 15mg of CPM can be fatal in people.

    I'm not sure how much CPM is in CCC's, and I could
    look it up right now if I weren't so lazy, but it's somewhere around
    3.5mg of CPM per CCC. So let's do a little math, that's a little bit
    above 4 CCC's that could be fatal.

    I would be astounded if a person died from eating
    just 4 CCC's, plus you guys are talking about CPM like it's the worst
    chemical you could put into your body. I just read around the forum and
    wonder how people can survive putting so much shit into thier bodies,
    and you're telling me that 15mg of CPM can be fatal. How about ecstacy,
    or meth or heroin? There are so many things worse than CPM, and yeah,
    it definately is better to avoid the CPM if you are taking a lot of
    dex, but if you're dexxing very infrequently and you aren't eating an
    absurd amount of those little devils as I said before it really isn't
    AS bad as many of the other things people are putting into their bodies.

    I've met people who have taken two boxes right in
    front of me and besides tripping their balls off they were fine. Not to
    say that I base what I said off of the fact that my friends can do it,
    I never said eat more than a box and I certainly said you have to work
    up to it.

    If you really think that the amount of CPM in 4
    CCC's is something that is seriously hazardous to your health than I
    think that you must be fucking retarded. Of course everyone is entitled
    to their opinion, which is why I posted mine before.

    And if you can't condone taking CPM at doses of
    15-20 mg I can't see how you could condone taking dex or any chemical
    at all, since pretty much every chemical posted about on this forum can
    kill you.

    As I said, that's just my opinion.

    mtv- this forum isn't a place for kids. come back when you're old enough to buy cough medicine. also, be warned that doing large ammounts of dxm when you're in middle school can effect and stunt your sexual maturity.

    When you're old enough to purchase cough medicine, go get a bottle of Tussin DM and drink it up. Check the back and make sure you are getting DXM Hbr as the only active ingredient.

    Fren- if you want to intensify your trip of dex, take some caffiene pills with your robo. but PLEASE don't fuck with CCC. CPM is very dangerous on your liver in any ammount, especially high ammounts. Also, you need to educate yourself on chemicals before you make statements that show your ignorance. Chemicals such as DXM, cocaine, heroin, and many others when taken in their pure form are far less dangerous on your body then flooding your liver with CPM or even acetominiphin (tylenol) for that matter.

    To all - PLEASE don't take the advice of FrenT. Know your chemical, and respect your body. If you are going to take a bunch of dangerous OTC medicine for the DXM in them, stick with Tussin DM and medicines that contain only DXM Hbr as the active ingredient.

    all drugs are and can be dangerous to so much amount...



    now dxm is no exception it is and can be dangerous...



    so i think that he and others have the facts laid out for them... if they want to take the drug an a more dangerous way...



    but would u like to know the effects? or harshness on your body? or
    side effects or withdrawals... cause i think you've heard enough about
    what kinds to take... that choice is up to you... your body your
    choices your consiquences(spl)

    I never came here to start and arguement. I know
    CCC's are bad for you. I've written that yes, it is true that dex is
    much safer if taken in other forms but the occasional CCC trip has
    personally shown me no side effects or liver damage from the CPM.

    As I've said, I do NOT recommend flooding your liver
    with high amounts of CPM, and 6-8 triple C's is not a high amount of
    CPM in my opinion.

    Which is how many i recommended for the first trip
    if you did pursue the path down Coricidin. I'm not ignorant about CPM,
    and the effects it does have on a person vary from person to person as
    with any chemical.

    Know your drugs, know your body. I can only say what
    I have personally experienced, and cannot recount for you any tales
    where the CPM in CCC's has ever effected any person I know in any
    significant manner. Again, I did not say eat an entire box, because yes
    that is stupid, and although I have done it-it really isn't safe
    because each time you take CPM or DXM or any chemical for that matter
    your body can react differently.

    And yes I've read numerous accounts of people dying
    from CCC's because they ate so many of them, but I've never heard of
    anyone dying from eating under 10, which is STILL more than I said
    someone should take on their first dose.

    So yeah, I didn't really want to start an arguement
    about the danger of CCC's or of who is ignorant or still in middle
    school or whatnot, I just expressed my honest opinion that CCC's in low
    doses are still somewhat dangerous and may have harmful effects on the
    body, but I have always felt that taking a low dose of CPM is less
    dangerous than taking some of the chemicals that people do use.

    Again, I never wanted an arguement, and I never
    wanted the guy to eat the entire box. I just wanted to let him know how
    I felt about the things, since nobody else felt the same way and
    everyone is just bashing them.

    It's much more fun to take a few CCC's and drink max
    strength tussin or zicam, and it is safer, but it is possible to trip
    off of just CCC's and many people will continue to abuse them. As with
    any drug once you start abusing them the effects get worse and worse,
    plus, if he did try the CCC's he would discover that the trip isn't as
    fun or "clean" feeling as just straight up dex, and would make a
    decision to continue or halt using Coricidin.

    You can't always just take someone's word on
    something, and from the general consenus of the thread he's probably
    not going to try them, but it still is a form of dex that does work.
    And I would personally never pay money for Coricidin because the same
    amount could buy you a bottle of Robo, and that IS safer.

    I seriously don't consider CCC's nearly as dangerous
    as people make them out to be, but in the same regard I do understand
    it to be a harmful chemical in irregularly high doses. Which is why I
    stressed ( or at least tried) the fact that CCC's should be taken with
    caution and in small doses, if any at all.

    good points i understand your view and point...

    but this site is about the substance... which in this thread is
    dextromethorphan.. so we should be pointing out how to get that...
    since that is what is the substance in the product which is causing the
    apparent effects... so less should we be pointing out what product to
    take... but more so what the product does... i just think we need to
    veer from telling people what cough syrup to take.. and more what they
    are taking...

    ehhh its an endless subject... but ccc's is dangerous and pointless to take if u have options laid out in front of you...

    i understand u want to educate to people that wont listen and that will
    take wat is readily available... and u want them to take what they do
    take safely...

    but i would like to keep this product legal... and taking dxm safely
    wont cause much harm and will be done more silence in form... then that
    is better... cause i know more people freak out... or have problems
    with ccc's... so then that causes problems cause now u got media saying
    omg children are taking medicine to trip.. ooo aww and omg... blah blah
    blahh... but u get the bad cause they say oh this kid took cough
    medicine and died cause his heart went outta control... blah blah...

    cause on media u always hear about how the poor innocent somewhat
    stupid kid died... but not about how last night 50 kids state wide took
    cough syrup no problem and tripped happily and gained a new perspective
    on life... instead u hear about some uneducated kid died from miss
    use... sad point is 1 outta 1000;s or more of trips die... not even
    that many... but why is this number even that high? cause we have to
    keep drugs quiet.. so since they are quiet we cant educate... whatever
    long subject..

    big debate... oh well...

    but here lets just talk about the good way of taking the substance and keeping it stable and legal u know?

    some people are just stupid, I guess. I always make the mistake of hoping people might listen to reason and take advice, but who gives a fuck anyway.

    The moral of this story is: CCCs = DANGEROUS AND BAD FOR YOU. IF YOU'RE GOING TO TAKE SOMETHING OTC FOR DXM, GET roboTUSSIN DM or a simlar generic robotussin that's list of active ingredients list only DXM HBR.

    In fact the better idea is to do a simple lemon juice extraction and take the pure DXM as a chemical or perhaps purchase the pure chemical.

    MTV- i dont know why your in here asking questions if you REFUSE to listen to any answer?? Everyone has stated that CCC's and like pills are a big NO NO in the DXM land. But to everyones advice you turn right around and swollow them.


    SO my advice to you is, fuck everyone on the forum, what does anyone know? Everyone here knows jack dick about DXM and everyone wants to see you die. Actually they want to see u suffer then die, and get DXM another bad rap. DUDE!!!! for the love of GOD, smarten the fuck up, or lay the fuck down in your coffin.

    ROBO MAX! COUGH ONLY!
    ZIACAM MIST
    ROBO COUGH GELS

    Yes those were yelling points becuase honestly you middle/young high school students just want to come out and for your first question say "How do i get fucked up beyond belief"?? There are people here who have tripped more in the span of a week then you have your entire life. Hell i've went on a binge of 18 out of 21 days, then continued it until i was so sick from tripping i couldnt move with out puking... anyways the moral of my story is, listen to people here, the answers are here and within the forum and it's members just listen to them!

    interesting note my roommate has been taking CCC for 2 years on a semi-regular basis (monthly or bi-monthly) and the last 10 times he has vomited up even doses as low as eight to ten pills and gotten horrible next day hangovers.


    be warned this shit is toxic...

    Note, vomiting can happen with a regular dose of DXM. It can be the pure chem. or it can be in the form of Robo Max liquid, or RoboMax Gels. I've puked off of them, on the last few times i puked, but hell it's not because it's toxic it's just a side effect.

    But to your avail CCC's are the DUMBEST thing to take... So while it might get you fucked up, you might be dead. Take the risk, or go get some ROBOGels and have a good time.

    The trouble with CCC?

    What's the big deal with Coricidin Cough and Cold? They say taking too much CPM is dangerous and could kill you. Taking too much of any drug could kill you! I've used CCC on many many occasions (usually taking all 16) and nothing has happened to me. I use to be like most of you in thinking 'ohh MAN, I'll NEVER do Coricidin! It's sooo dangerous.' Now I realize you can take a fair amount and be okay. Of course, if you take too many, you'll die. But that is the case with anything. It's like we should all start saying 'cocaine is a terrible idea. You can overdose.' It's a true statement, but you should already know that you are taking a risk if you do coke in the first place.
