    Uh so Swim has basically killed DXM for himself through a mild addiction at the end of his spring semester/through early summer and its getting toooo expensive/ annoying with all the extractions and shiz that have to be done (syrup got annoying)

    swim was reading up and heard you could trip balls :crazy off of dramamine/benadryl (swim is planning to go for the Dimenhydrinate in dramamine as he heard its better but swim will go for whatever the local acme has ... and they have alot of shit)

    Swim couldnt however, find any dosing charts or anything like that what would be a good dose / product/ active ingredient list for swim. (swim heard any generic motion sickness pills will do as long as the ingredients are correct)

    btw swim is not in the slightest bit scared of of any deliriants/psychoactives
    swim has tried acid, shrooms, dxm, and nutmeg/nitrous/dxm

    Re: Starter dose of Dimenhydrinate/ Dimenhydramine

    People have vastly different tolerances with these drugs, and tolerance develops fast, so dosage is rather hard to calculate. Also, DPH and DMH are very random drugs--that is, 300mg may be crazy one day, and 600mg may do almost nothing another day. I have heard that if one is having a large amount of allergies, those may "use up" some of the drug lessening its psychoactive effect.

    As for the difference, dimenhydrinate is basically diphenhydramine with another molecule attached. Because of this, dimenhydrinate doses will be roughly twice that of diphenhydramine doses. I'd recommend just using DPH to keep it simple.

    For a beginner swim is pretty certain 300mg would be way too much.600mg?That would be sheer insanity!Diphenhydramine can be some very scary stuff,swim hopes whoever plans on tripping on it the first time would take all the neccessary precautions.

    Swim took 12 50mg tablets. maybe swim read something wrong but swim didn't have the trip swim expected. Swim had momments where everything was blue and saw wierd shapes in his bedroom wall for about 5 minutes, but other than that he was just very tired for a couple hours.

    swim thinks this drug is a waste of time. he read online how u can trip balls off it so he tried taking bennadryll. anyway he took 24 and he felt stoned for about 30 min. anyway he was desperate to have a trip like he read about so one night he wound up taking 72 pills. no tripping balls, however he had troubble breathing for hours, and his skin was red. swim will never touch that stuff again.

    Just so SWIY knows, 72 pills (assuming 25mg each, so 1800mg) is risking a fatal dose. If benedryl just isn't working for someone, taking a heroic dose is not necessarily a solution.
