    SWIM just purchased some Dexalone brand cough suppressant softegels, they contain 30mg of dxm hbr per softgel, and nothing else, the inactive ingredients are polyethylene, glycol, gelatin, sorbitol, glycerin, kollidon, propylene glycol, and some coloring, (SWIM's not worried about those, or the inactives, but they may yield some dangers, who knows? SWIM is no chemist.)

    In the past, SWIM has used 1100MG of DXM polistirex, a time release form of DXM (the DXM is coated in an edible plastic.) What would be the reccomended dose of the HBR form in a 220 pound male, without risking any SERIOUS health problems? Again, SWIM has taken DXM before and only suffered from dhiarrea, inability to sleep, dilated pupils, and sweats.

    Also, SWIM used ephedrine last night, will that interact with the DXM negatively? SWIM also recently used magic mushrooms several days ago.

    Any info would be appreciated, thanks.

    Dexalone still has sorbital and perhaps other stuff to make your tummy hurt if you take a lot. Sigh.

    First of all. DO NOT TAKE STIMULANTS WITH DXM EVER. DXM already has stimalant effects and raises your heart rate and blood pressure and a high enough dose of stims along with is asking for a heart attack. And DXM poly is harder on your bady since it's time released. but taking dexalone by itself and with nothign else will be fine, though swim prefers robo gelcaps since they're much more easily available.

    Ahh, thanks for the info! SWIM has thought about using robo gelcaps, but dexalone has a higher ammount of DXM per cap, it was reccomended to SWIM by a friend.. SWIM orders them from a site called drugstore now, you get a higher percentage off of your orders whenever you buy something.. A good deal considering SWIM has heard dexalone is the most effective source of DXM aside from purified powder. SWIM just took some and will let everyone knows how it goes when it kicks in. :crazy He took a 900MG dose. The whole box. Hope everything goes safe and easy!

    Swim had high hopes for DexAlone, but had violent nausea from just 15 capsules (450mg) despite taking diphenhydramine beforehand. He thinks it was to sorbitol. Best of luck to Swiy.

    Wow, time for SWIM to say what happened, SWIM didn't have time the past few days, and this will be fairly short due to the fact that SWIM didn't exist during most of it..

    SWIM doesn't remember much except feeling like he didn't belong here, or that he was somewhere else, all sound was gone and he had to pay very close attention to hear the TV.. There were some serious closed eye visuals, a dome-like structure inside of his eyelids, descent to a colorless ground or wall while spiraling, etc. SWIM doesn't remember much else except opening his eyes and barely being able to see, like he was trying to channel in to someone elses vision, and a very distinct feeling of a medieval carpenter being near, memories also include a well, and a very strange source of energy he can't explain..

    All in all, SWIM doesn't know what happened, but it really feels like he went somewhere else.. SWIM didn't get any diharrea, or bad stomache pains from the sorbitol. 900mg dose. All 30 caps.

    I wasn't aware that this product is still available. If anyone has more information about the product (availability, active & inactive ingredients, photos, comments), it will be much appreciated (see this thread).

    It's not found on the shelf too often, I've never seen it in a store. AFAIK, if one is in the US, they can ask their local pharmacy to order some.

    Re: dexalone

    it seems that this product has been discontinued in the us no pharmacy seems to carry it its all been discontinued when requested from wholesaler

    xxxrockforlightxxxx added 27 Minutes and 54 Seconds later...

    i guess that the manufacturer sold dexalone to another company a few years back and it seems as if its not being manufactured anymore its not found available at any wholesaler thats been checked personally has

    anyone out there had similar experiences????

    Re: dexalone

    I worked at CVS as a pharmacy tech and still couldn't get my hands on any. No distributers carried it. I think it is gone forever.

    Robitussin Caugh Gels are just as good though and the price per miligram is less. Just the Gels have less MG's so you have to take more.
