I have a few questions that SWIM hopes the more experienced DXM users on this site can help answer. The situation goes like this... A few weeks ago, I took 16 robogels, equalling 240mg of DXM. This was SWIM's first time. It was both a good and bad experience. During the good parts, I had some very faint yet interesting closed-eye visuals. Fortunately, I didn't puke or even feel very nauseous - which can probably be credited to the fact that I was laying in SWIM's bed pretty much the entire time. Laying in bed, I felt like I was huge and taking up the whole bed at one moment, and extremely tiny the next. SWIM also seemed to "lose" time. SWIM seemed to blackout, but not really, since no time passed when SWIM "came to." It's a bit difficult to describe, but it was certainly not unpleasant. I believe that it was almost immediately before peaking that things started to turn bad. At that time, I was reading about DXM and read that an allergy medicine I had taken might cause fatal results. SWIM then started to panic a little. Well, panic may be too strong a word. It is safe to say that I got really scared. I tried to think coherently and control things, but became alarmed when I was unable to do so. I know that the "no control" is pretty much the point of DXM, but I was still quite alarmed. So the rest of the night I was tense and frightened and just lay in bed, hoping not to but waiting to die. SWIM finally came down, went to sleep, and woke up strangely refreshed. The panic from the night before seemed silly and a bit excessive once I got back to normal. Though the trip didn't end very well, I plan on trying it again and has a few questions. Will the tense-ness and fear happen again? Or since SWIM now knows what's going on and what's going to happen, will it not end the same way? Should SWIM up the dose a little or just play it safe and stay at 240mg in case the panic comes again? If SWIM were to up the dose, how much would be a safe addition to the current dose? Should SWIM expect something different the second time around? Or is it going to be similar to the first? And what platuea did I manage to reach that first time? I am sorry if there's a lot of unnesessary information here or if these questions were asked before. Any and all help will be very much appreciated!
