    SWIM has taken 150 mgs of DXM in gel cap form without any problems whatsoever. Then the next time SWIM used the same product SWIM used 180 mgs without any problems. The last time SWIM used the same product SWIM used 240 mgs and vomited. Could this be due to the fact that SWIM used it at approximately 11:00 PM after eating mexican food with spicy mustard for dinner at 5:00 PM? (SWIM has problems occassionally with sour stomach anyway) Also, in past times if SWIM used 240 mgs in syrup form after drinking four 12 oz. cans of soda (One at 4:00 PM, two at 7:00 PM, and one at 9:00 PM then dosing at 11:00 PM, SWIM would usually vomit. Thanks.

    Swim has never had a problem with any sick feelings while taking any dose of DXM (even up to 1200mg). Never been nauseous once. However swim has a very strong stomach and almost never feels nauseous. It is not uncommon to vomit or feel nauseous on DXM.

    Your stomach content could have a lot to do with it. Swim generally doses on an empty or mostly empty stomach. I would think that spicy foods and acidic drinks like soda mixing with the chemicals in cough medicine probably isn't the best mix for your stomach.

    So what would be ok for SWIM to eat before taking DXM and how long should SWIM wait after eating before dosing? Also, SWIM has heard that taking dramamine a half hour or so before using DXM will curb the nausea, is that true?

    SWIM can rarely take the gelcaps without vomiting, but then again he takes 600MG worth or more, so he would consume 60 gelcaps at a time. The indigestible ingredients cause this. If he doesn't vomit, he knows there will be hell to pay to the porcelain gods the morning after.

    Obviously you have crossed your threshold limit for DXM. Not everybody has a cast iron stomach and it seems that consuming a mass amount of syrup (even if they are encapsulated) is not a natural thing for the human body. The body probably recognises this stomach content as a kind of poison an of course rejects it.

    SWIM encountered similar problems in the 300 to 600 range and even though he has high tolerance to being sick, the end result of throwing up seems unavoidable for most. Lying down or practicing slow and steady breathing is a means for staving this off but ultimately the body's natural processes should win out and some signifigant purging is the only way to fix, what is ultimately a very unnatural volume of gelatanous liquid for the human body to dissolve.

    Being sick is a experience many people avoid more than anything, it really is one of the worst experiences the body goes through, this is the major drawback of DXM syrup and of mainstream DXM consumption. However once purging is complete many can now resume and step up into the realm that the it reveals with the horrible part over and done with.

    More research by psychonauts could reveal more efficient ways of refining this product, DXM however just because it is legal, do not underestimate the damage this largely long term unresearched chemical may cause to you long term.

    SWIM has only done DXM twice. The first time SWIM tripped off a bottle and a half of Robotussin. The second time SWIM did the gel caps and felt very sick.

    After looking here during his trip, SWIM agreed with many users that smoking a bowl would calm down the nausea. SWIM has a high tolerance and only smoked a bowl of very low quality bud but it stopped the nausea.

    How long SWIY should wait, well that varies from person to person. SWIM would say at least a few hours, perhaps 3 or 4? Dramamine could indeed lower the nausea, but even the recommended dose of dramamine could alter the dxm experience, or so SWIM has heard. SWIY could also try spacing out the dose SWIY is taking, instead of taking it all at once. When SWIM used to do dxm, he waited 4-5 minutes between each gel cap/syrup he ingested. Laying down and generally not moving around a lot may also help lower nausea

    when SWIM used robotrip, SWIM always puked. SWIM took the gel caps, and basically knew the purge was inevitable. SWIY probably has a weak stomach compared to others, and that's something SWIY can't change. So for the most part, SWIY has to just go thru the purging.

    SWIM once took around 240 mgs of DXM in syrup form, beforehand SWIM took one ranitidine hydrochloride (Acid reducer, i.e. generic for Zantac 75) tablet which was 150 mgs, and had the nausea still but never had the urge to puke. The nausea lasted approximately 30-45 minutes, atleast SWIM thinks, he is not sure of the exact time because DXM distorts the perception of time.

    Since DXM is acidic in nature wouldn't the generic Zantac 75 tablet reduce the urge to puke? The only effects of DXM that SWIM noted as being different at that time were more "crispness" to robo-walking and more exagerated visual distortion. Meaning the robowalking would be compared to walking in pitch black darkness in front of a strobelight on a fast speed; and the visual distortion would have a more "floating" appearance to text, numbers, and small lines (Cartoon characters on the television were not effected but smaller objects such as tree trunks were). But then again, that was SWIM's experience, SWIY could have a different change in the effects of DXM.
