    Like Muirner here,I am well not i ofcourse cos i despise drugs and all that crap but I am going to have his first real DXM trip tonight.He used it a few times as a kid but he did to little to walk out of his body,etc.


    Now what alarmed I am that on the box of the dextromethorphan sirup it is stated that 500mg is the lethal dose.so swim a natural paranoid fcker went to the manufacturers site and there he saw the same thing.


    could some shed some light on this,please?Edited by: daeron

    500mg definitely won't kill you. Previous estimations placed it at
    similiar numbers, but in medical studies people were given as much as
    900mg a day and only suffered minor negative side effects (not that I
    recommend trying that)

    yeah its weird ive heard that LD50 is something like ~150-500mg/kg.Dunno why would they say so on the box,its not like dxm is a very famous drug around here..anyways swim plans a 300mg trip,so he will most probably be ok(apart a from possible pukadelic exp.,lol)

    As little as 150mg could kill you if you're taking a MAOI, SSRI plus
    DXM can cause serotonin syndrome. But for someone taking DXM alone
    lethal dose probably starts at 2 grams, 500mg is a nice trip lol.



    300mg is a nice first dose, lets you get a good idea of what its like
    without being too intense. If you want to lesson nausea take a normal
    dose of Benadryl(diphenhydrinate) about 30 minutes before you dose, or
    take some ground ginger.

    Well, 4th Plateau would start at 15 mg/kg according to the FAQs.



    500 mg is just a relatively low dose (if you're not missing your
    enzyme), at which you would probably have a trip that's more physically
    inclined then mentally, if you weigh about as much as I do (77 kg).





    About the puking, I don't really feel it when SWIM's puking,
    although I do know when he will puke and SWIM generally makes it
    in time - or makes someone get a pukebucket in time.





    And of course my warning, do NOT combine alcohol with DXM. While it
    may be nice at low amounts, with higher doses it can fuck your trip
    very badly.





    Have fun. [​IMG]

    hey guys,thx for the replies


    well I am currently having a nice mellow&very enjoyable trip.he started with 300mg 2.5hrs ago and did a little refill(chuckle) about a hr ago(~70mg).Also hedrank a couple of glasses of wine,no CEVs but hes enjoying it.It really amazes him how,although he did dxm atleast 5times as akid,he didnt manage to acquire this sort of a nice mellow everythingsoundsdifferent kinda high,all he did waspuking&feeling drunk.


    DXM is definitely worth exploring.


    PS although tge sirup tasted really foul I didnt feel the need to puke,in fact he felt the need to eat,and drink.man wine never tasted so gooood.I err ahem swim admits that he had a "dxm is a crappy dissociative" point of view untill now...

    as far as im aware it is incredibly hard to overdose on dxm, however
    there are things in the medicines containing dxm which can be
    harfmul. One example of clorepinephrine maleate, which is on
    coricidin cough and cold, that shit is <i>really</i> bad for you and
    an easily lead to overdoses


    But if u have pure powder the biggest danger is tkaing too much and
    winding up with seratonin syndrome.


    Unless of coarse u are taking anti depresants, then you probably
    shouldnt take dxm to beign with.
