    So I got a package of pure DXM powder a while back along with a large
    amount of gelcaps. My scale didn't arrive at the same time, it came about
    a week later.... but in that time I did something incredibly ignorant and
    irresponsible. I filled a couple of caps up for a friend and myself,
    smooshing the powder down to get a somewhat equal amount in each.
    We took them, had a weird night, and woke up the next day with the
    familiar "day after" effect that DXM typically leaves.

    We decided to do some more - a lot more, for some reason. I crammed
    two caps full of as much powder as I could fit in them (these are "00" caps
    so they hold a decent amount). I had made some smaller caps earlier, we
    took those too. We were both conscious long enough to set-up the 5
    disc CD changer.... after that, my only memories of the event are opening
    my eyes and hearing The Chemical Brothers "It Began in Afrika" and
    seeing trees growing above me while elephants and tigers walked by. I
    then opened my eyes again and believed that I was stuck in an igloo
    somewhere. Then there was nothing - absolute blackness - and I came
    to, out of what I can only describe as a comatose state.

    It's approaching a year since that happened and I've only taken DXM a few
    times, each time being a terrible experience. I also got my scale shortly
    after that and tried to recreate what I made that day... the closest I've
    come to remembering at all measures out to be a little over a gram.
    Close to what Erowid lists as the known fatal dosage.

    So my question is this... I have given the DXM a few months break now,
    but I am concerned that my mind has "been ruined" on the stuff as the
    only result from doing it in the time since has been me spacing out for
    about 20 minutes and then waking up in the morning feeling like trash.
    After giving my mind and body a break from it for a while, should I try it
    again?

    Well you're right, that was incredibly ignorant and irresponsible, and
    as for your question, if you think you already ruined your brain, why
    not ruin it some more...

    erowid does not list a little over a gram death.....2.5g's ur at risk of death. there is many of us here that have done over a 1gram. How much were u doing when u spaced for 20min and passed out?if u want to try dxm again work urself up first trip at 250mg and then 500mg and then 750mg and if u want go up to ag.....personally my favorite trips are around 750mg but some people prefer dxm at a lower stage

    At least I realize that it was irresponsible. Many people don't.

    As for the dosages of my caps since then, I've tried to stay around
    500mg... once or twice doing about 700mg. I didn't get the body buzz
    like I did before and the little signs that the trip was beginning never
    really became apparent. I would just space out, couldn't really focus on
    anything, didn't get any visuals or have any weird thoughts such as being
    a part of the floor or being shorter because I took my feet off. I would
    just go blank, fall asleep, maybe wake up during what was probably the
    peak and find myself completely lost where everything was uninteresting.

    The times I did were also in a new setting with people I am unfamiliar and
    uncomfortable doing any substances around because they are typically
    negative people. So perhaps a more fitting setting for the next time will
    suit better. The friend I always tripped with is no longer around here,
    though... so that might affect it, we always fed off each other's trip.

    Anyways, I think the next time I try it I will make a smaller dosage closer
    to 300mg. Has anyone here experienced a type of sustained tolerance to
    DXM where you do a certain amount regularly to where smaller doses
    don't produce any effects?

    For each plateau you do, it takes a week for your tolerance to go back to normal.



    For example, if you take like 300mg and get to the 2nd plateau, it will take you two weeks.

    i have done 1.7 grams which wasnt nearly as bad as when i did .5 grams then .5 grams 4 hours later when i had my seizure


    I like to do around 500 or redose with 300 so 300 + 300 >>>>> 500


    redosing is the way to go imo


    But you should start low again, and drink orange juice it makes the onset a lot smoother.





    But i think i can say this, after one or 2 VERY BAD times (such as my seizure and one time when i went blind) the trips ARE different, their not as magical, hard to describe, but they feel more rough and not as pleasent and special as before, esp as when i first started out, CHERISH your first 10 or so GOOD trips!





    Good luck and have fun. stay safe tho

    Well I popped a 350 mg cap about an hour and a half ago and all I'm
    getting is some visual distortion... that's about it.

    It ended up being quite nice actually. It definitely wasn't overwhelming at
    all, but I could close my eyes and see some things and generally felt
    good.

    I had an abnormally high tolerance to dxm at the time this happened. I was taking around 3 bottles of cough syrup per day. Probably hell on the liver but anyways I want to tell you of a trip I had during this period. It haunts swim to this day . I took about 2 grams of dxm powder(2000mgs) 500 was smoked. And the other 1500 were placed into capsules an eaten. I am barely tripping balls as he smokes the powder in his bowl. About 20 minutes into the trip swim notices something different. Walls began breathing very much like acid and began morphing into different faces. Perplexed was swim as he stared back at them and tried to communicate . A face different from the others looked at swim. It was vile and evil.

    The face was covered in blood and it screamed at swim and told him"your fucked" at this point it did not scare swim and he continued on his trip. Swim wished to go see how big his pupils were and he went into the bathroom and looked in the mirror. Swim saw in the corner o the mirror a child with a knife. He was not scary just creepy . He had no iris in his eyes. They were black. No white either. He smiled and told me "your fucked" at this point swim knew something was horribly wrong. He ran into his room and opened a bible and began reading out of it. ( I am not religious and has beer owned a bible in his life). The child chased me and began circling around me. I could do nothing but read from the bible. This pissed the kid off and he began slicing me to pieces. I could feel no pain. The coming fear of death was building so swim shut his eyes and instantly fell asleep. Having a horrible nightmare of the child dancing in my pool of blood. When Swim woke up He was extremely hung over and he went to find his mirror shattered and his hand bloody with cuts

    To make a long story short I have been very afraid of touching dxm again. I was in for a great surprise when the child followed swim everywhere for the next week or so. I haven't seen the child since. In my opinion dxm is very dangerous in high doses. I also hear drugs and other negative behaviors attract demons. Call me crazy but it's a very logical topic. I did some research myself and there are many accounts of BEK sightings. To this day I don't know if it was the drug or something else feeding off swims bad trip. Please people just play it safe. Don't go above 1000mgs . That's swims story. Thanks.
