    CVS brand Tussin Max Strength 8 oz. 15mg DXM HBr per 5 ml

    how much for an enjoyablelow dose? 150mg?

    does it make ur face red?

    can you somehow easily remove some of the syrupy stuff and just get more strong DXM?

    Dosage of DXM depends a lot on body weight/personal chemistry, but I
    think around 200-250mg would be a good start for most people.
    150mg wouldn't really give much effect (maybe feeling a little

    As far as making your face red, in some people it happens and in some
    it doesn't. I've never had that problem, but as it is a histamine
    reaction, taking a normal dose of Benadryl will help (also works if you
    happen to get Robo-itch).

    There is a method of extracting DXM from all the syrupy shit... you can
    end up with either freebase powder (if you do this, it's a good idea to
    convert it back to a salt before taking it) or DXM hydrocitrate
    depending on how you end the procedure. All in all, it's a much
    better way to take DXM as all that glucose and thickener crap isn't
    really that good for you. For some reason, a lot of people seem
    to be afraid to try it... I don't think it's hard at all (then again,
    you do get better with experience). All you need is clear
    non-soapy ammonia, naptha (Zippo), citric acid (or lemon juice), and
    your Tussin (duh).

    The procedure has been mentioned on this site a couple times, so either do a search for that, or see below:

    My first dose ever was 354mg, and that was a pretty nice trip. I was well in control and i never had to much of a problem. The one thing i would say is dont do it someplace where there is a buncha people. I only say this because i did it at work (i am a cashier at a grocery store) and i felt like i was gonna pass out. Also you pupils become slightly dialated. One thing that customers knowticed was a little red in my face, but all i had to say was it is hot in here.

    The only downside i have had is that i'm affected by heat. What i mean is if it gets warm where i'm at all of a sudden, or i start to stress and sweat, then i start to turn red, and feel like i'm going to pass out. Note the only time i've had this is at work while i'm tripping. Oh yes, and on your first dose expect robo itch, i had it once then the second time none. If you want read my post in this sectioni have my write-up in there.

    300 or so is a better starting dose.

    If you have a HEB pantry nearby check them out, 8 0z store brand max for under three bucks.

    You can extract the DXM out of cough syrup by pouring the syrup into a bag and then pouring ammonia into it. If you tack it onto the wall, the dxm will seperate out on the top. You can cut the corner of the bag and let the syrup drain, and when the dxm is about to pour out catch it into another dish. let it dry and there is dxm crystals. I dont know about snorting it however. I wouldn't snort it, and I'm not sure how much is too much, but I know I ate 96 corecedin (SP?) and he was... well he ended up alive afterwards, though i think his stomach hurt pretty good. But the method of DXM extraction makes for a much better time.

    In that extraction, you need to add a non-polar solvent (naptha
    [Zippo]) as well as ammonia in order for the DXM to separate out...
    ammonia will turn DXM HBr into DXM freebase which is oil soluble.
    Drain out the water layer (ammonia, cough syrup crap, etc)... save the
    naptha, evaporate the naptha (or mix naptha w/citric acid solution, let
    separate, save water layer, discard naptha to make "Agent Lemon" [DXM


    DXM Freebase Crystals

    Don't snort it, it won't work... if you run the extraction to create
    DXM freebase (as opposed to going on to create DXM hydrocitrate), as
    freebase isn't water soluble. Plus DXM metabolism is
    hepatic. And on top of that, it is extremely alkaline and would
    burn like a bitch... there's actually a topic on here somewhere where
    people share experiences w/snorting DXM.
