    No, unfortunately. Only Romania, as far as I'm aware of. I only posted this because I'm working on the DXM products database, which is supposed to be international.

    Kind of a bummer to find out this is only available in one country, no where near "here"; do they sell anything similiar in the States?

    This is the only form of DXM swim has ever taken, and it did nothing for him at 20 pills, other than insane scratchiness. At 40 pills, the scratchiness increased, but dissapeared as swim got knocked out into dreamland... hell, those were some sick dreams, but he doesn't remember much of it.

    this reminds swim about the good old days. he would take around 40 pills of this stuff each day, and then go to school. it was just insane! the local drug store sellers all knew him. he would enter in, the vendor would laugh and say: "oh, so one pack or 2?" but at one point, the "wow" trips went away. swim still does go and take 40 once a month or so, the dreamy parts still come back. a little. last time he did it, he got the scratch for the very first time. he knew it could happen, but it scared him. swim doesn't see dxm as fun as it used to be :( such a pity, that box is insanely cheap.

    Most people suggest that it takes a long time of abstinence for the "magic" eventually returns. I recall quite a few similar experiences with the local pharmacists when I lived in Romania ;)

    The scratches kill any "magic" there might be. At least they did for swim. They ruined the whole thing and also swim's skin :( He hasn't taken any for a few months, but next time he does it will most certainly be in a different method.
