    Okay, so I have some generic DXM(20mg) and Guaifenesin(400mg) pills. I just want to experience a 1st plateau high.

    I did the calculations and it would take about 120 mg of dxm for me, but that means 2,400 mg of guaifenesin, which unfortunately is the maximum amount an adult should take in a day.

    My question is if I were to take that much guaif, would it make me REALLY sick? I'm asking because I've read that people have taken 3.6gs+ of it and not getting sick.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    P.S. I couldn't find any info that answered my question.

    My cat thinks if you want to have a good experience find a product without the chest expectorant, you never know how your body may react to it, getting sick wise, my cat knows its not potentially deadly.

    A friend of mine had a 1:10 solution of DXM and guaifenesin and took 240 mg DXM and 2400 mg guaifenisin respectively - just the amount you're talking about.
    He said the experience wasn't really horrible but cetrainly the worst time he had on DXM.
    The nausea he usually only experiences while actually drinking the syrup was persistent during the whole trip. He had to lie down and stay motionless the whole time, and yet he still felt so sick it ruined the experience.
    Around eight hours after taking the drug, when the trip was pretty much over, he went to the kitchen to eat or drink. Despite his stomach being completely empty, the act of moving triggered a throw-up tic. He went around helpless, as the muscles in his throat repeatedly contracted until he lay down again.

    Overall, it was not worth it, according to his words.

    However, no one knows how your body is going to react. You might feel less nausea than my friend.
    You might also turn up to be allergic to guaifenesin. Be sure to test it in advance by taking one pill, should you still decide to go for it.

    Swim is lucky he seems to be immune to guan. whenever he does dxm he uses mucinex dm maximum strength( it has 60mg of dxm:) and 1200 mg of guan) swim has never once puked on these for some reason

    Swim has the same reaction, but remember his doses of guan can cause kidney stones overtime

    Once upon a time, AFOAF was bored at home and really wanted to try DXM, but had no way to get to the store. She found a bottle of Mucinex-D. She has a strong stomach and thought she could handle 2400mg of guaifinesin. She then spent two days in the hospital after vomiting so violently that she had a seizure.

    Don't do it. Everyone thinks they'll be that special person who can handle it, but is it really worth that risk? Just buy the syrup.

    Although i wouldn't Recommend it....Ever. Swim can safely say that he took 6000mg of this stuff with little to no side effects. But of course who knows what it does to the liver and kidneys when you load you body with to much of these meds.
