    Has anyone tried taking DXM and mushrooms. My friend has been wanting to try it and was just wondering if anyone had any opinions or experience with it.

    An anonymous letter I received several years ago:

    "I have done dxm and mushrooms about 500mg dxm and 2g mushrooms it was a BLAST. I loved it. It was dissociative and at the same time felt like mushrooms (obviously) It was very cool trip I just wish I had more mush at the time, luckily they where some good mush and 2g was enough to really feel the effects. Usually its not quite enough for me but with the dxm, it added much more to the trip than I expected. I want to try this again at higher doses each, and I highly recommend it. So far LSA + DXM was better but maybe I just didn't have enough shrooms.
    Oh and it was very comfortable, much more comfortable than dxm alone because the shrooms made me laugh uncontrollably for no reason, felt good, grinning a lot. DXM doesn't have that effect on me. But again, I always love mixing trips unlike micklemouse here. Guess it depends on the person.
    Next im trying DXM + ambien. I hear benzo's plus dxm can be mixed safely but you have to start small, on the benzos. I will do most likely 600-800mg dxm + 10-15mg ambien (just to be safe)"

    450mg DXM & 2.5g dried Psilocybe Cubensis - back in my childhood.

    Here is a trip report someone (O.) told me. It could be fictionnal.

    Conditions : empty stomaches, O. is a bit tired but ok. They did this by night in a big house with many rooms and many art objects. A very good environment for a mushrooms trip.

    22:00 - O. takes 450g DXM, his girlfriend C. takes 2.5g Cubensis, and his friend E. take 2.5g Cubensis as well.

    22:30 - O. takes 2.5g Cubensis. He wanted the effects of the DXM and the shrooms to act at the same time, and DXM is always long to make effects with him.

    23:30 - O. is now tripping. He enjoys it very much ; it's like an usual mushrooms trip, but softened by the DXM effects. There is a feeling of lightness, like if he was "swimming in the air", it's very pleasant and he can't stop wandering around. He's tripping hard on the music (King Crimson, Death In Vegas, Raison D'Etre, and some more). E. and C. find the mushrooms effects too light so they both take something like 0.5g Cubensis more.

    1:00 - O.'s trip is getting weirder and weirder, while E. and C.'s trips are on a plateau. O. has many old memories from his childhood. He starts writing tons and tons of things, actually many sentences he said more than ten years ago are back in his head, and he wants to get traces of them. Also, his writing is different than usual ; actually he writes more in the way he writed when younger. Very weird, a bit frightening too. Sometimes O. really does forget who and where he is, and thinks he's some 10 years old boy writing in his bedroom. We also watch a porn movie just for fun, but nobody can focus on the TV, it doesn't interest us, it could be a football match it would be the same. Many times O. goes to the toilets because he thinks he just shitted in his pants, but fortunately it didn't happen.

    5:00 - E. and C.'s trip are now ended, but O. is still tripping hard... He starts worrying, imagining worst cases scenarios where he's definately crazy, and he's not sure of the time, he thinks it's something like 12:00, he becomes a bit paranoid, thinking his friends don't want to tell him he's getting mad not to make him panic, and so on. It almost triggered a bad trip, but then O. calmed down realising that his trip was coming to an end.
    O. tried to fuck with C., but O. couldn't achieve an orgasm. And O.'s belly was making weird noises, actually like he was shitting, so it killed his libido.

    7:00 - E. and C. are sleeping, while O. is still lightly tripping, so he wanders in the house, draw, write, watch TV,... Usually he can't sleep after a trip (but O. is insomniac).

    It was one of O.'s longest and hardest trip. It wasn't a "bad trip", but not a good one. Way too overwhelming, but he doesn't regret it. O. thinks he should try this combination again, but something like 200mg DXM + 1g Cubensis.

    Re: 450mg DXM & 2.5g dried Psilocybe Cubensis - back in my childhood.

    swim experianced his best trip on a dxm + shroom mix... 300mg of dxm in form of gels and 3.5 g of dried cubes.... long, intense, upbeat trip. Swim has a report somewhere on the site, swim finds dxm keeps his trips possitive while shrooms have a tendancy of putting a negative spin in his trips.

    DXM + Mushrooms

    Swim was wondering what the implications of such a combination would be. Swim has a 2 Meter grizzly bear that weighs 90 or so kilos and is experienced with both substances. the grizzly has 400mg dxm and 3.5gm cubensis mushrooms. the grizzly might also smoke just a little marijuana to combat any nausea from the two.

    Re: DXM + Mushrooms

    Mixing in marijuana?! SWIY's grizzly bear is going to be in some bizarre bastardization of his sane mind, SWIM will say that much. The dissociative properties of DXM mixed with psylocybin and amplified by marijuana will make for a rather strange experience. Could be very interesting though, be sure to have SWIY's bear post experience report!

    Re: DXM + Mushrooms

    the insanity, i know. yes swim will put in a trip report as soon as his grizzly decides to go on a magical journey. swims grizzly talked to some friends and one offered to help him clear a bong with a cool blast of nitrous so that might be mighty nice. tomorrow seems like a good day for launch.

    Re: DXM + Mushrooms

    if this is a first-time try, this is a pretty heroic level to just dive-on into. it's swiy's brain to pan-fry, broil, or cook however way one sees fit, however the level of dissociation added with the general insanity psilocybin has to offer, all i gotta say is swiy better have a sitter. without lowering the dosage of either the DXM or the psilocybin swim sees this as a train wreck waiting to happen.

    Re: DXM + Mushrooms

    SWIM has a friend who has tried this combination. He says that the effects of each substance seemed effectively doubled in intensity. The dose of DXM seems about right to SWIM, but the dose of cubes seems a little high, unless SWIY has a lot of experience with shrooms and know the potency of the particular boomers in SWIYs possession.

    Oh, and SWIMs friend says cannabis is a good idea. Just not too much.

    Re: DXM + Mushrooms

    To add to this, SWIM has had some experience with just DXM and marijuana. After chugging only a single bottle of liquid robo, SWIM smoked 3-4 bowls. Immediately following this, SWIM was launched inside of his mind into a full-scale hallucinatory trip for about 40 minutes. So marijuana seems to be a major amplifier of psychedelic effects.

    Re: DXM + Mushrooms

    actually no. swims grizzly doesnt like to vomit at all. quite the
    contrary actually. the purpose of the cannabis is to relieve this.

    yes swims grizzly is quite the heroic bear, but it does like to take some precaution and learn everything he can about the wonderful world of picnic baskets and their side effects. like swim said, the grizzly is very experienced in both dxm and mushrooms, his last dosages of both were 500mg dxm (yesterday) and 4gms mushrooms (2 months ago). he is going to wait at least a few weeks to allow his system to flush so he can fully experience the effects. but still swiy is probly right, swim thinks that lowering his grizzlys mushroom dose to around 2gms a little more acceptable.

    Re: DXM + Mushrooms

    In swim's opinion, unless you're very experienced in both of these drugs seperately I would probably cut those dosages in half down to maybe 150-200 mg dxm and 1.5-2 g (half cut) shrooms for starters. If you must mix those dosages you have listed then at least leave out the ganj until you see how the shrooms/dxm combo is affecting you. I'd also maybe check erowid and see what the appropriate timing would be for taking the drugs. You know so they plateau at the same time (but that's more a matter of personal opinion as to whether you want them to peak simultaneously).

    As for swiy's worry about the nausea that will probably ensue from the dxm/shrooms. Maybe take some dramamine (dimenhydrinate). Only the regular therapeutic dose though as too much of that and it could possibly add some actual hallucinations to your trip. (If this intrigues swiy, check some of the bad trip experiences on erowid, in swim's experience they're not fun hallucinations). If swiy lowers his dosages to what swim recommended swim can also recommend the ganj as a good idea for nausea.

    But yeah, unless your an experienced psychonaut I would cut those dosages in half just to play it safe because a dxm and shrooms combo sounds like one intense experience.

    Swim is very interested in tying this combo so if swiy goes through with it please report back to let us know how it was. Swim's found next to nothing on this combo. Erowid has a couple exp. reports on it but that's about it.

    Re: DXM + Mushrooms

    yes the timing of the plateaus was something of a worry for swims grizzly. he was thinking about drinking his robo (might do extraction) and then at T+0.45 he would ingest his mushrooms. swims grizzly loves DXM and has mixed it with many things before (ie. marijuana/hashish, nitrous, MDMD/MDA, small amounts of alchohol) and found the combinations very nice.

    the idea occured to swims grizzly to use dramamine to combat nausea but he is not a fan of deliriants at all. after his indigestion of 300mgs of benedryl he wishes to never again experience talking to someone in his closet for 30 mins only to turn back around and realize the man wasnt there and swim had been talking to himself. very weird stuff.

    i am psycho sans the "not", im more of a "lets do it" kinda grizzly.

    Re: DXM + Mushrooms


    He mixed DXM with amphetamine entheogens? I'm not sure about the two mentioned, but mixing DXM with MDMA is supposed to be dangerous. Risk of serious hypertension or serotonin storm or something.

    I seem to remember reading around here somewhere that DXM is dangerous to combine with any 5-HT psychedelics. On the other hand, I've read trip reports from bears who have mixed LSD with DXM and had great trips. Before I learned that it was contraindicated, my bear mixed 2nd-plateau doses of DXM with 20mg of 2C-I and 20mg of 2C-E on separate occasions. He had incredible visual and delusional experiences in both cases, but the combinations did feel somewhat toxic - particularly the 2C-I, which felt like it raised his blood pressure to an almost-uncomfortable level. Later experiments with much lower doses, like taking a mere 50mg of DXM with a regular dose of 2C-E, still had noticable influence and still felt a little toxic.

    DXM plus shrooms sounds like an invitation to the vomit comet. A light dose of Benadryl might be a good idea. Or it might just be better to purge.

    Swim lives on diphenhydramine for his allergies, so it's natural for him to take a normal, theraputic dose of 50mg before a DXM trip to help with both the robo itch and the nausea. It works well, with some caveats. Even a medical dose of DPH alters the DXM trip a bit, changing the visuals. It's not necessarily a bad thing; it almost feels like one is having a mild deliriant trip inside DXM-space. The drawback is that it amplifies the dehydration quite a bit. The bear has to keep lots of water, gatorade, and club soda on hand. They all help in different ways.

    Re: DXM + Mushrooms

    wonderful. well that made a few things clearer. swims grizzly will be eating ~2/2.5gms and 300mg of dxm when he gets some new boomers. a TR as soon as the launch is completed. swims grizzly wanted to use some crayons to make drawings of some of the visions he hopes to see. crayons freakin rock.

    well thanks ECL, yes swims grizzly takes time between all explorations into his mind to stock his body up full of water and vitamins at least a day or two before.

    Re: DXM + Mushrooms

    Swim has done this combo in the past. It was a very trippy night to say the least. Swim has much experience with these drugs and most others though so this could lessen the strength of the trip. Swim also had about three hrs earlier taken 6 \mgs of alprazolam. This was done on the second day of opiate withdrawal which always has swims mind off track no matter what.
    Swim would not reccomend it to any who are even the slightest bit discouraged or worrysome about the combo! Swim personally loved the combination... But swim might just be weird tho.. haha
    All swimmers out there be very careful mixing drugs. Swim knows it was not very safe to mix benzos, a DXM and shrooms and wants to let all know so if not already aware.....

    Re: DXM + Mushrooms

    The source for DXM being possibly dangerous to combine with MDMA and psychedelics was here on this forum. I've seen this mentioned several times, but can't remember exactly who said what (only that it was individuals whose opinions seem sound most of the time). Here is one example:

    http://www.drugs-forum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=40632

    I've seen positive trip reports about the combinations here and on Erowid.

    The 2C-X reports come from TGIK, who is just this guy I know. :)

    DXM & Mushrooms

    SWIM didn't want to grave dig on some of the much older topics of the same subject, but was curious to see exactly how many others have had experiences with this mix. SWIM has had many a good experience with Mushrooms and DXM (separately) prior to this trip. (Highest doses: 3.5g of potent cubensis, 600mg of DXM)

    The only time SWIM ingested this combination, he took 285mg of DXM (it would have been 300mg but SWIM's silly friend was curious to see if he could pop a gelcap between his fingers) and then approximately 2 hrs later drank 1.8g of (quite potent) Mushrooms made into tea. SWIM had an amazing experience with this combination and informed me that the visuals were twice as intense and a good euphoria accompanied most of trip. According to SWIM's trip sitter, SWIM looked to be quite lost in his own mind, and never managed to move from his bed on the floor for a period of 2 hours. SWIM sat and watched Comedy Central on mute, thoroughly enjoying making up what the people on the shows were saying. SWIM remembers encountering some paranoia, but SWIM is quite comfortable with psychedelics and was able to drive off the paranoia easily (The dissociative effect of the DXM helped with this aspect as well, SWIM concluded). SWIM also smoked a few good bowls of high quality Marijuana after he became sensible again (approximately 3 and half hours after the ingestion of the tea) and enjoyed this high for another few hours. SWIM would recommend this combination to anyone with a decent amount of experience with DXM and Mushrooms by themselves. :thumbsup:


    SWIM is quite curious to hear about anyone else's experience with this combination.
