    So each time i take a good 20-40 "gels" after an hour or 2 my stomach
    starts to rumble a little and will get diahrea that kinda burns. I
    think i read somewhere the licorice in the pill causes it. But im
    wondering if anyone has an explanation or if it happens to anyone else?

    Not sure about why it happens, but whenever a substance upsets my
    stomach, I try to eat some corn chips, wheat bread, etc. so that the
    carbohydrates and fiber calm my stomach down. Also, some people take
    pepto bismol or dramamine, but I havent tried those. .

    Dextromethorphan can indeed cause the bowels to go into peristalsis, resulting in the runs. Seems it acts like the antithesis of an actual opiate in this respect. Read my previous post in the Snorting DXM thread for a horrible and true story - if you think getting the runs is bad! LOL! It can also elicit some nasty pimples due to the bromine atom - a condition known as brominism -if one indulges too much.

    Its the inactive ingredients in the robogelcaps, this is very common after a night of tripping off of alot of those little red bastards. Some people get it from DXM no matter what, but I only got it from the robo gel caps. Except for the burning part...

    SWIM often refers to the robo gelcap problem as "Holy shit dude, im pissing out of my asshole"

    it sucks, but it doesnt really happen for swim anymore if he spreads the dose a little bit more than usual and makes sure to dose on a generally empty stomach about 1-1 and a half hours before going to a party or wherever
