    So, I was coming up on 6mg/kg of DXM, and had just smoked half a
    bowl of cannabis. As a bit of an experiment, he took 25mg
    Diphenhydramine HCl to take care of the itch. It seems the combination put
    him to sleep.

    When SWIM woke up, he was just about to reach the second plateau. He
    found this experience extremely disorienting, but interesting once he
    realized it. The dissassociative qualities seemed to enhance this.

    Anyone else had experiences like this?

    yeah you can trip out on diphenhydramine alone. id imagine combined
    with cannabis, dxm, and waking up suddenly while coming to the
    relaization that your are on all these drugs would be somewhat intense.

    I am aware of the effects of Diphenhydramine, which is why I mentioned
    it. However, it was taken in a standard "medicinal" dose, so I don't think it
    would have too much of an effect.

    What is interesting, and somewhat worries SWIM, is that last night at
    work, I had apretty nasty cough, so I took out his bottle of
    gelcaps and took a small, 30mg dose (0.3mg/kg). About an hour later,
    I had to ask his coworker to cover for him a bit, as he was too
    confused and "out of it" to continue working. This lasted for a little bit,
    and while I was capable of continuing, he felt shaky doing so on a
    cash register.

    It isn't to say that I was tripping, but that he felt "tripped out", and
    didn't want to cause any problems. The 30mg dose was taken about forty
    hours after coming down from SWIM's DXM experience.

    I think he may have to stop using DXM for a few months, although
    he had been using it no more than twice a month, and only ten times
    total.

    from U.S.A.
    i can no longer take cough medicine, even when i actually need it, due to the "out of it" feel i get now. i think prior abuse of dxm hastricked my body into thinking it is meant to make me trip. so, now, if i take a regular 30mg dose, i feel like i used to at about 90mg. i've never gone any higher than 30mg since quitting recreational use, as i do not like dxm so much and am not in any hurry to see how higher doses would affect me now. i wonder if this sort of reverse tolerance is a common occurence.

    Hmm. I noticed this has been moved. I did intend to take this in a direction
    more focused on the experience rather than the chemicals (especially to see
    if it happens with other substances) , but I would welcome a discussion on
    the chemical nature of this experience, if someone wishes to do so.
