    I've heard of small amounts of DXM disolving once it is added to a
    drink and stirred a little bit. Anybody know about how much actually
    disolves? If I was looking for about a 1000mg trip, how much should
    actually be added to the drink? Also, what's the best drink to cover up
    the taste? SWIM put 700mg in sunny delight the other day and it wasn't
    that bad, but could still be tasted a little bit.

    DXM doesn't dissolve. I don't think...

    Actually, according to the FAQs, it is quite soluble. Shouldn't you add 1000mg to the drink if you want a 1000mg itinerary?



    on an offtopic note, Delsym tastes so much better than ROBO.

    Yeah, I thought I had heard somewhere that a small amount dissolves in
    water so I was wondering if 1000mg was added then how much of that
    would be left after it dissolved any. Guess I just heard wrong. Thanks
    for the info though.



    And yeah, Delsym does taste WAY better than robotussin.

    From what I read dxm is very little if any water-soluble. But putting it in a drink will still work, it doesn't matter if it dissolves or not. If its in the drink it is in the drink. after a while it will settle to the bottom though. Just chug it down.

    just think about the extractions. all that non-dissolved stuff in the mixtures... that's dxm. it most likely does dissolve though, but only with LOW LOW solubility. like you would probably have to drink litres and litres of liquid with DXM full disolved in it. but RoboCop is right, the DXM doesn't have to be dissolved, just put it in a drink.

    Delsym has a plastic taste to it, which is reasonable given the DXM form contained therein...


    I think mixing a bottle of Robitussin with a non-alcoholic/alcoholic beer allows it to go down smoothly. Somehow the beer seems to cover the taste. Just find something with a strong taste of it's own, and use that as a chaser/mixer. White Soda also works well, but stay away from sugary ones. >.<
