    Has anybody any experience with this substance?


    It's an anti-histamine, so the trip will be anything like dramamine/diphenhydramine....


    It's a deleriant, so watch out..

    There was a report not so long ago on this, the only such report I have read.





    Deleriants are nasty substances, usualyl highly toxic, and causing something far from a high, closer to an unpleasant fever hallucination, or acute psychotic episode.


    Stay away from deliriants, they are not fun and not worth it.

    This stuff can destroy muscle tissue at high doses. I would not recommend it.

    Where did you get that claim? I'm not saying you're wrong but I'm curious. I hope you didn't just hear it somewhere.

    That's your opinion, but my opinion, along with a lot of others, is that sleeping pills can be a learning experience once in a while. Diphenhydramine comes to mind. That is why I would like to know if doxylamine actually does have any effects.

    An overdose of Doxylamine Succinate can cause rhabdomyolysis, which is the breakdown of muscle fibers. The contents of the muscle fiber cells end up spilling into the blood and can cause kidney damage, acute renal failure, and a wide range of other problems.

    One of the many sources for this info...

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/...ve&db=PubMed&list_uids=11465247&dopt=Citation

    I don't know how much of this stuff it takes to cause an overdose, but this talk of recreational use worries me. What worries me more is that no one seems to be aware of the very real risks of this medication.

    I tried it. It made me extremely tired and I only had closed eye visuals. I forget the dose but it was quite high. I fell asleep 4 hours later.

    not only are delierent a horrible idea, but the one u speak of, i have read at high doses causes muscle deterioration (im not 100%) but thats what i have been told. not only that but it will dry ur respitory system up and possible cause arithmias. plz dont mess with these horrible otc fixes (not talkin about dxm)

    Doxylamine succinate for recreation?

    Now this isn't something I plan on trying but he is wondering if anyone has just out of curiosity.One would think the effects at high doses would be similar to diphenhydramine seeing they are both anti histamines.

    Re: Doxylamine succinate for recreation?

    I amnt too sure about recreational value but it is among the most effective otc sedatives available in the Us, and more sedating than some prescription hynotics. In a study, it was found that doxylamine succinate is possibly more effective than phenobarbital for use as a sedative. For this reason, doxylamine has sometimes been used off label in a manner similar to diphenhydramine for the reduction of anxiety symptoms. The dosage required to induce hypnosis can be as low as 6.25 mg, but is usually effective in dosages of up to 25 mg. I wouldnt recommend it for anything besides sedation if thats what swiys looking for.

    Hallucinations no. Sedation yes.

    Only worth while OTC sleeping aid, in Smurfs opinion. He still needs a extremely high dose but works.

    Re: Doxylamine succinate for recreation?

    SWIM, in his younger and much much stupider years, bought a box of N*Q*** liquigels or something along those lines. They contained DXM, yes, but they also contained a good amount of doxylamine succinate as well. After a long night of some g-bong hits, SWIM and his friend decided to eat the box of liquigels. Needless to say, they hit the floor in about 20-30 minutes, and woke up perhaps 5 hours later with a TERRIBLE hangover. I feel that he probably took what could be considered a recreational dose, if there is any, of doxylamine succinate, but there were no recreational effects, just some serious sedation.

    Doxylamine will knock you flat - that's a given. Hence it's a major ingredient of NyQuil. The product is sold under the premise it will shut you up and make you sleep. See the ads: Barking, coughing miserable husband in bed. Wife can't sleep through his cacophony of a rhino-virus. Feeds hubby some NyQuil. He passes out. Wife sleeps with smile on her face.

    Don't play with NyQuil, kids. It also contains a full dose of acetaminophen per dose - 1 gram. You'll sleep - but your liver and kidneys will hate you.
