It suppresses coughs. But the real effects of DXM happen when you disobey the instructions on the bottle and take a shitload. DXM has four plateaus. No one ever does the first one. The second plateau isn’t really a trip, it’s more like being drunk and high. Plateau three is trip. It's the point when you don't want to look in the mirror. High up in the third plateau, when you move, there is no feeling.. you're a floating pair of eyeballs. The 4th plateau is entered by few and those who do enter are not always eager to return. It's not uncommon to see aliens of go blind of forget who you are.
Anyways don't be an idiot and go taking the cough medicine in your cabinet because you read this. Other ingredients in cold medicines can make you horribly sick or kill you. Only take the medicine if the ONLY ingredient is dextromethorphan.
Pure DXM is generally regarded as one of the safer recreational drugs. It contains no chemically addictive properties, although it has psychological addiction potential. As far as brain damage goes, www.abovetheinfluence.com, a total bullshit anti-drug website couldn’t even produce a fact about the danger of DXM on the brain. All of their facts concern overdoses on medications like Acetaminophen that come in cold medicines. 350 mg of DXM is a good starting dose if you're inexperienced. Take at you're on risk and do your own research. Read the DXM FAQ by William White before you ever take DXM.
DXM User Type 1: I take DXM once a month. I find the experience to be very enlightening and profound.
DXM User Type 2: I take DXM every weekend man. That shit is great to party!
DXM User Type 3: (slurred) so you see... I've been... I've been... taking.. DX... M for like...like at least three weeks straight now. I chug two bottles at breakfast,...lunch... and dinner ...and dinner man.
Dextromorphan Hydrobromide (DXM HBr). A small dose supreses the part of the brain that causes you to cough while increasingly larger doses cause you to TRIP THE FUCK OUT. Becomes a full blown hallucinogin after about 900mg.
DON'T TRIP ON DXM BY USING CORICIDIN COUGH AND COLD! C.C.C. has an extra active ingrediant which can kill you. Use Robitussin products or if you are in Canada get Contac CoughCaps because they contain nothing but 30mg of DXM.
"Duuude! I'm not even in my body anymore!"
a type of cough supressant that gets you FUCKED UP and trippin balls at high doses.more...
good effects (what people take it for):
-altered time perception
-"cartoonish" tint to vision
-static-like tint to vision
-visual and auditory hallucinations at high doses
-delirium (thinking that a tree is talking to you, etc.)
-intense euphoria (happiness)
-strong feeling of connection with others (compared to the effects of ecstasy)
bad effects (what people hate about taking it):
-possible nausea and vomiting (depends on if you have a weak stomach or if you are nervous)
-possible paranoia (depends on mood and surroundings)
-decreased sex drive (not only does the thought of sex never cross your mind, but even if it does you'll find it extremely hard gettin a boner or gettin in the mood)
-pupil dilation (dead giveaway if you're on it, i reccomend staying away from parents or other people who can't know that you're tripping, or at least never looking them in the eyes)
-"bug eyes" (makes it look like you're scared or surprised all the time, which can also be a giveaway that you're on something)
-increased heart rate (dangerous if you have heart or blood pressure problems)
-zombie-like walking (makes it look like you're hypnotized, which can also give away that you're on something)
overall a great drug to take for a legal high, can be found in medicines such as coricidin cough and cold, robitussin cough syrup,...
The coolest legal high ever invented
Dude im tripping so hard right now...
The drug dextromorphan hydrobromide, found in over-the-counter medications for cough and cold. most popular brand: robitussin maximum strength.
DXM MAN, WHEN I TAKE IT, IT MAKES ME JESUS! WHY CAN'T JESUS PEE?
(dextromethorphan was mis-spelled in the first definition)
A cheap legal high, which is why it's the taster's choice among college heads. Can be used in conjunction w/ cannibis or other choice substances. Not recommended to be used w/ alcohol though. Heads w/ high blood pressure should be weary of brands of cough medicine that have pseudoephedrine in them. Stick with Robo Max Strenth Cough.
A 4 oz. bottle of Robotussin contains 354 mg of DXM, a good dose for a first-time tripper.
A powerful disassociate psychogenic, usually gathered from cough syrup. It is a synthetic opiate replacing heroin and opium in old-time syrups. At a low dosage (30-60mg), it suppresses the cough center of your brain.
At higher dosages (500mg-2000mg, depending on weight), it is a powerful full-blown psychogenic that can cause major OBE, time distortions, hallucinations, and a general disassociation from reality (hence it's a disassociate).
People who don't like it usually a) can't handle the intense experience or b) tried drinking cough syrup too much. It can be legally ordered as a pure powder from many net sources, and rather cheaply (cheaper than syrup).
It's usually measured in "plateaus", with one being the lowest (500 or so mg) and four being the highest (1.5G+), with each stage getting closer to full-blown hallucinogenic disassociation.
If you haven't done at least 500mg (around 1 1/2 of Robo MS), then you really haven't tried it.
I dexxed heavy last night and had a Philip K Dick experience out on the front porch...but it wasn't the same front porch as ours. It was...somewhere else.
Dextromethorphan, a beautiful drug found in common cough syrups, see dextroverse dot org.
I Love DXM.
