    well at least i dont think theyre on erowid.





    anyway, i had a little extra syrup (couldnt stand to drink the whole
    thing) and i figured what the heck, lets try dehydrating it.



    so i put it into the toaster oven at the least amount of heat (150
    degrees) it took several hours, but eventualyl it turned into a
    plasticy oily looking substance, not really a substance iv ever come
    incontact with ebfore, maybe caramel. but anyway, i can handle it with
    my hands and its soft, easy to form into swallow-able shapes.



    my only worry is that baking it hurts the dxm, anyone know?



    when i asked my self the above question it got me to thinking of heat,
    which made me think of Cold, which made me think of another idea



    ( i havent done this, ill do it tomorrow i promise and report back the effects)



    take a ice cube trey and fill it half way with syrup (you want the
    cubes to be small you know, unless you happen to have maybe a tear drop
    shaped ice cube trey), break the ice out, lick the corners to smothen
    them out, and then swallow the ice.



    my only worry about ice cubes, is that the alcohol in the syurup, wont
    allow it to freeze, so i dont know if this concept even works. ill find
    otu tomorrow.



    WHY?



    Syrup is the easiest to get (unless you have a straight dxm source of
    course) but you can go into walmart and buy the generic cough syrup and
    get like 700mgs of dxm for under 2 bucks, it costs signiifcantly more
    iv found to get dxm only pills, plus their harder to find.



    well anyway, any comments would be super appreciated because i dont know if any of this works yet,

    why not just do the known DXM exaction method for syrup.....iknow it turns most people off becuase u need to use ammonia andnaptha...but if have a general understanding of chem and solvents u see its really not that bad

    well youre right curtains, im sure once i start using the amonia/napatha method i wont use anything else.



    but like you said it is kind of scary using poisons, i dont have that
    much confidence in my understanding of chemicals and solvents.



    although i still think this has a little bit of merit, in that its
    something absolutely anyone can do with just a bottle of syrup.







    anyway, i have one bottle of robitussin (dxm only) in an ice trey
    freezing now, my only fear is that it is going to be a little hard to
    swallow them but, ont he other hand them being cold they wont taste as
    intense (like how ice cream is sweeter when its melted).



    my plan is to take one 4oz bottle of robitussin (354mg dxm) and
    one bottle of "robitussin cough gels" (300mg dxm) with a couple glasses
    of grapefruit juice, can anyone recomend how much grape fruit juiice
    would be of assistance?

    let the record show that robitussin maxiumum stregnth cough does NOT freeze.



    scratch that idea





    right now i have a pyrex measuring cup sitting in a pan full of water boiling on the stove, syrup in the pyrex.



    i watered it down a little, im hoping to turn it into a moldable goop (thats teh scientific term).



    ps. where at walmart is naptha and amonia?



    iv never seen naptha or amonia containers

    ok well for the same reason that the cough syrup cant be frozen, it cant be boiled down into a thicker substance.



    theres not much water in it evidently, no water to boil away, or not enough water to boil away anyways.



    i left it boiling for hours and it had no effect.





    Baking it does have an effect though, it becomes super easy to form
    into swallowable shapes, i want to know if baking the syrup destroys
    the dxm before i waste another bottle.



    anyone know?

    Naptha is cigarette lighter fluid (you'll have to ask for it at the
    register that sells cigarettes, they keep it behind the counter).



    Ammonia is in the household cleaners department, should be in the same
    aisle as PineSol, bathroom cleaners, and other crap like that.



    And also, the heat shouldn't hurt the DXM if you're cooking it at 150
    degrees (some of the extraction methods involve heating in the
    mircrowave, so I don't think what you're doing will hurt anything).

    well i guess my concern is that, if boiling it doesnt remove the liquid, then baking it must remove more than the liquid

    I found generic tylonol pills plan to extract the acetiminiphin (cold
    water extraction) gently boil the water off (80-100F) and collect the
    powder. it may take a while to evaporate the water but pure DXM
    powder at th end. assuming the cold water extraction got all the
    aceteminiphin. (I leave the water solution in the freezer till I
    get a thin top coat of ice, then let that melt (makeing sure temp is
    close to zero or 32 for the yanks) collect the water filter it an
    insane amount of time and repeat. In hopes of removing ALL
    aceteminephin.



    evaporate your water at 80-150 and you should be left with DXM powder
