Experience:535mg - My First DXM Trip
- Date: June 18, 2016
- Time of Dosage: Around 5:30 pm
- Gender: Male
- Weight: 73 kg / 160 lbs
- Age: 17
- Setting: At my house
Obtained the DXM: I walked into CVS by myself and spent a good 5-10 minutes looking through their cough syrup for just what I needed. It was Dextromethorphan Polistrex, which is the longer acting form of DXM. This detail was unimportant to me at the time.
First Dose: I was originally going to take only a low dose of about 120mg but I decided that I was gonna be okay with a higher dose my first time because when I took LSA for the first time I took 800 Morning Glory seeds and it was an amazing time. So I downed about 250mg which is half the bottle.
Second Dose: About 30 minutes after the first dose I decided that 250mg wouldn't be enough for me so I drank the rest of the bottle. So now there's 535mg in me.
Everything was going well: I laid in bed while listening to music and closing my eyes, waiting for the geometry to start. The geometry gradually set in and at this point, it's 45-60 minutes after the second dose.
Uh-oh: I started feeling like I was dying. It's funny when I think back on it but while it was happening I was like yeah this is it. While making my way to the bathroom, everything was slower than I've ever seen it. Like 3 frames per second. Everything felt very distant and I got the bright idea of getting in the shower. Probably the worst thing I could've done. I had never experienced dissociation like this before (besides laughing gas at the dentist) so I didn't know what to expect. I got in and turned on the water and I couldn't feel what temperature the water was. Now I'm REALLY starting to flip out. I get out of the shower and go to the laundry room and throw up in the toilet. My heart was racing and I didn't know what to do. I told my mom that I was sick and I needed to go to the hospital and she said okay. So I went to the hospital and was there until about 2 AM. I specifically remember hearing voices while I was there. One of the voices said that something happens once every 1,000 years. No idea what that's supposed to mean. The universe was probably trying to tell me that I messed up.
Conclusion: The trip ended up lasting about 4 days. Every time I would wake up, everything was still 3 frames per second. I know now that I have the CYP2D6 deficiency. I only need to take 120mg to have a good trip with geometry that lasts at least 2 days.
