Trip Reports - DXM - DPH

Report given by /u/nicnar on reddit. Posted because there were not experience reports for DXM and DPH in combination

So I heard about this combination a few times before, and always thought it was an interesting concept. The DXM and DPH are supposed to be very synergistic, producing effects that neither have on their own. (Extremely vivid CEVs, OEVs, etc.)

I'll admit, I was always kind of skeptical. I had tried both before, typically hitting the 3rd plateau with DXM and never going above 400mg of DPH, because enhanced music is cool, but hearing voices and talking to people who aren't there... not so much. Despite my skepticism, I was VERY curious . Last night, I finally decided to try it out. I swallowed 20 of those disgusting DXM gel caps (15mg each x 20 = 300mg DXM) and 10 of the equally disgusting DPH gel caps (25mg x 10 = 250mg DPH). Keep in mind these are relatively low doses for both drugs. After my stomach settled (I'm a bit of a bitch when it comes to swallowing large quantities of pills) I sat down and got started on some work.

About 45 minutes into typing, I started to notice that it was turning into a bit of a challenge to type. My vision was difficult to focus and my fingers felt really sluggish - almost like my keyboard was submerged in a tub of maple syrup and I had to dip my hands in it to type or something.

I figured this would be a good time to stop typing out my essay. I stood up and recognized that familiar "floaty" feeling you get in your head on DXM. It was still easy to keep my balance though. At this point, I was feeling really good.

All smiles, I walked around the house, just enjoying how awesome it felt to walk around. Everything was just... floaty. I don't know how to describe it, but rest assured it was fucking awesome. I went outside to take a piss in the backyard and looked up at the stars as I drained my bladder. Before I could take it all in, I suddenly realized I was pissing in my fucking backyard. Why was I pissing in my backyard? I didn't really fight it though because it felt awesome.

When I was done, I looked at the stars again. They were brighter than usual. After staring at them for a while, all the stars started to feel like they were REALLY close. It felt like they were marble-sized and only a few feet away. It was such a convincing feeling that I had to reach out and try to touch them. I didn't reach.

I looked at the side of my house and all the panels on the side looked like they were melting and swirling around. Again, it was SO convincing that I had to walk up and touch the side of my house just to make sure it didn't really turn into a big liquid blob. To my relief, it was indeed solid. The coolest thing I noticed, at this point, was the fact that I felt nearly 100% sober in my head. My motor skills were off and I was seeing things, but in my head I felt totally clear.

I was starting to get cold so I did a few jumping jacks and went inside.

It was really dark inside the house, but wherever there was a bit of light (like the little green light on a computer monitor or the little red light on the fire extinguisher), I would see swirls of color seeping out of it. Like they were leaking out. It looked exactly like the rainbow you see on the surface of puddles outside when motor oil gets dripped in them. Again, I had to touch it. Again, normal. At this point, I was close to the peak of the trip. This is when I get a visit from none other than my cat, Jeff. I heard him meow and quickly spun around to pet him. It was so amazing. He felt like my little buddy and I wanted to go on an adventure with him so I picked him up and took him to my room. I really had to pee again though, so I dropped him off at my room and then went to the bathroom. As soon as my urine hit the surface of the water, I swear the water changed all different colors, as if I was pouring paint into the water, not piss. I wished I could pee for longer.

Upon returning to my room, I noticed that Jeff ditched me. So I decided to hop in bed and see what happens. This is the peak of my trip. As soon as I looked up at the ceiling, it turned into an enormous snow-covered mountain. It was so fucking clear I couldn't believe my eyes. I saw avalanches, skiers, trains and everything. I remember thinking "How the fuck is my brain even doing this?!" All the snow was swirling around slowly and beautifully. Every single surface I looked at told a different story. The floor looked like a desert, the walls looked like an ocean, and all kinds of other shit.

My favorite part of the trip, though, was when I closed my eyes. When I closed my eyes, it felt like they weren't really closed. The visuals were so realistic that it felt like my eyes were still open, except I was looking at a different world. I looked over my bed (with my eyes closed, mind you) and saw that I was teetering on the edge of an enormous cliff. I wasn't scared though, because I still felt relatively sober and knew it was just a visual.

I also kept going into this weird dream state where I would talk to old friends and family, only to realize that they weren't really there, and I wasn't really talking. Almost like a really short dream (while I was awake) One more phenomenon I noticed was that I often confused random shapes for objects that weren't really there. For instance, when I lifted the lid to the toilet, I saw the little hole at the bottom of the bowl and I thought it was my phone for a second. And I saw my shoes on the ground as my cat. I didn't even realize it was shoes until I petted them. Goofy things like that. I kept switching back and forth between "closed eye world" and "open eye world", trying to decide which one I liked best. They were both so incredible I just decided to open/close my eyes in 30 second intervals so I could enjoy both. That's the last thing I remember before going to sleep.

I woke up this morning, still a little cloudy from the DXM, but highly impressed by what these two substances could do together on a pretty low dose. You can easily buy 300mg of DXM and 250mg DPH for under ten bucks at your local drug store and try it out yourself. I'm curious to see if anybody else had an experience like this. I was NOT expecting such vivid visuals. TL;DR I'm no expert, but I'd say this is a very solid combination; 8.5/10
