DXM Trip Reports Email: Nine/SedahDrol
The DXM FAQ: http://www.frognet.net/dxm



The DXM experience, like any psychedelic experience, cannot be explained to any degree. Only hints can be given to how a trip "felt". These trip stories are mainly for those who have done DXM. For those who haven't, they can be used to get a 2nd-hand glimpse of what happens on a DXM trip.

The following stories and reflections are anonymous. The way they were submitted is the way they are on this page, misspellings and all. They have not and will not be edited without the writer's permission. Names and email addresses are neither kept nor given to anyone.


Please note that I am in the process of transferring these files into HTML format and getting rid of all non-interesting or badly written trip reports. Until then, I am no longer taking submissions. Please don't send me your trip reports until I'm done



Index of Reports:

  • Jetboy's DXM chronicles...A multitude of dexperiences. So many that they got their own page. Thanks, Jetboy!

  • DXM + Acid experience (submitted by anonymous) ...Want a cheap way to travel? Buy yourself 2 tabs and some DXM!

  • 1200mg experience...Now my being -- which was really a universal "we" as opposed to an individual identity -- seemed to contract into a single point then explode outward countless times, the infinity of space and time and perception and being contained within each explosion.

  • A typical third/fourth plateau experience (submitted by anonymous) ...During the various stages of the third plateau experience, one may glimpse one's life and self from a wholly external perspective...

  • A usenet poster's third plateau experience (submitted by anonymous) ...I felt as though I was traveling through galaxies at warp speed. I knew my body was there but it felt numb, like it had been pumped full of anesthetic.

  • 2 experiences: 1st and 2nd plateaus (submitted by anonymous) ...I felt euphorically happy, but in a mellow way. I felt complete. I didn't "need" anything to make me happy, I was happy to just be.

  • A second plateau trip mixed with cannabis (submitted by anonymous) ...it was the first time that I experienced the thc/dxm thing. My timing was right and I loved it. At one point in the evening they both mixed and BAMM! Everything became alive in a cartoon world.

  • "The Summer of DXM" (submitted by Agaton Sachs XIII) ...4 experiences: 150mg, 500mg, 900mg, 1200mg... This summer, 1997, I didn't have a summer job for the first time in years and years, and since my interest for drugs had grown, especially the more psychedelic one, I decided some self-expermentation would be a good way to get a few non-happening summer days to pass.

  • Pneyz's Experience (submitted by Pneyz) ...It seemed that my anatomy was setting out to disprove the fundamental laws that govern the elasticity of objects. I was stretching, but not in painful ways. My body had finally decided that it was partial to a ellipsoid shape, when I realized I was now traveling at a fair speed towards the center of a mottled green torus. I passed through the donut hole and fell out of the clouds onto earth.

  • Diamond's Experience (submitted by Diamond) ...Next thing I knew I was a flower... I don't know how I got that way (Dream, Hallucination, or Imagination?) but I felt all the powers of the plant. I lived its entire life in a matter of (apparently) minutes!

  • An accidental 1800mg Delsym Experience (submitted by Charos) ...so I called my friend...he did some calculations...paused...and promptly said "well, congrats...you've just drank 1800 MG, hang on for the ride".

  • A DXM abuser's first trip (submitted by anonymous) ...I had to have that feeling of oneness and being able to comprehend the world, the universe, etc. I was able to express myself without any hesitation.

  • A story of getting kicked out of school for distributing DXM powder. (submitted by Ythan) ...They ultimately treated the DXM the same as an illegal drug as far as the consequence they chose for me, which is unfortunate but I can also understand.

  • A fourth plateau tale from Evilfrige (submitted by Evilfrige) ...As we drove I stared at people on the street...they were all dead...or perhaps just rather sickly. I looked in the rear view. My face was uglier than the people's on the street.

  • A vivid trip involving multiple substances (submitted by Shostiru) ...I began to look around me. I felt suddenly shocked that with such incredible beauty and energy around us, we as humans choose to spend our time in sterile and unnatural surroundings. It felt as if a black veil were dropping from my soul, or perhaps as if an evil spell were being banished. I could sense the life and joy around me in the trees, the clouds, the skies, and even the stars. There was life all around me, and I could suddenly see the pattern to it.

  • A group-trip experience (submitted by Dan) ...I now realise that it was my state of mind causing the trip to be as it was. This trip was one of the most amazing, bonding, empathogenic experiences I have ever had.

  • A journey in the astral body (Submitted by Sage) ...it was like this world only without a mask of ignorance to observe it through. As if there's a mask of some kind hiding the truth of this dimension that was only then to me removed.

  • A recalled experience from 1992 (8 oz robitussin) (submitted by Corndog of Carbondale) ...What I recall most is that the whole experience progressed in surges, or 'waves' as we referred to them then.

  • A descriptive first-time experience (354 mg) (submitted by hadez) ... While enjoying these CEV's in my little own world i suddenly felt my body kind of "fall" and it was as if my body had turned into liquid.

  • Shaman's 1200 mg DXM trip (submitted by Shaman) ... As we lay there still on the pavement, looking up at the universe, thoughts and ideas of a most powerful nature crossed my mind, i was open to the inner workings of the universe. it was utterly amazing and unexplainable.

  • Bildow's DXM trip (1 1/2 bottles of Tussin DM) (submitted by Bildow) ... heres somthing to do while robotripping thats pretty interesting: Stand up,and walk back and forth swinging once at the air everytime you step ahead. Repeat this, it wont get boring. Trails coming from your arm and being able to hear your arm break through the wind is enough to keep you busy.

  • Zendo's Un-trip (submitted by Zendo) ... Then I thought to myself, "If only I had some weed." Then I got this brief vision of last time I rummaged through my closet looking for something, I came across an old jar of leftover THC oil that I never used.

  • Dehydrated Trip (600 mg Sucrets) (submitted by Melvin)... The moral of my story is this. DO NOT take DXM if you are sick. The inert ingredients in the cough drops probably helped to flush my kidneys and speed up the dehydration process.

  • DXM-Vodka Cocktail (parts 1 and 2) (submitted by Melvin)... Recently I read something about diluting the powder in 100 proof vodka. I grabbed a bottle of Smirnoff 100 proof at the store and decided to give it a try.

  • 2 reports: First DXM Experiences/How I got to like Brother Cain (submitted by JHawk)... The first time I had heard about DXM being a potentially useful psychoactive agent was in 1970...

  • Welcome to the 3rd Plateau (submitted by anonymous)... What was odd, was that it was smaller than a proton and more immense than the universe, at the exact same time.

  • Ace's Dexperimental Report #1 (150 mg + 354 mg) (submitted by Ace)... By 7:40, my room was quite dark. "In-a-gadda-da-vida" was in the CD player, and finally the effects began to creep in slightly. I didn't even realize it until I noticed I had begun dancing a little when the drum solo started.

  • Revelation (submitted by n-carnation)... Then Hazy stopped, and with a blank face started to smile; a revelation. Hazy cautiously turned and saw a flower where the beacon was. A flower so beautiful, incredible, and full of life it made Hazy stumble.

  • Really Weird Experiences (submitted by First Time Charm)... I basically felt as if I were just floating along, very light and carefree.

  • DXM and Flasher.exe (submitted by dexdbob)... I could also tell that I was moving my eyes up, down, and about like REMs (Rapid Eye Movements) during sleep, so I could be able to see my surroundings.

  • At a drive-in theatre in a forrested area (submitted by Kid)... The dissociation from reality, Self and humanity became so severe that suddenly "I" felt like some pure consciousness forced into an foreign mind of an alien race and it was not "my" mind nor were any of its contents.

  • A loop through time (submitted by anonymous)... For next hour or so the trip seemed to be no different from others. Eventualy I totaly lost contact with the environment. Then it began.

  • Too much DXM! (submitted by Some Punk from Wisconsin)... All I really distinctly remember from the day was everyone talking about me. "Why?", "Is he going to be alright?", "What a fucking jerk!", "He's fucking nuts!"...

  • Conversations with the other "me" (submitted by Bud Bizkit)... At about 12:00 I stopped having discussions with the two other me's. They were kinda getting boring, so I told them I was going to go watch TV.

  • Nerd Guy's First Dexperience (submitted by Nerd Guy)... I didn't really grasp the concept of a movie for a while, and then I remember thinking that I was in a movie. It was all such a paradox I just couldn't get that out my mind, everything became montonous in the end.

  • Anxiety Attack (DXM + Prozac = bad trip) (submitted by VanKitty)... i was taking 60mg of prozac a day for about a year up until a week before i took the coricidin...it's a strong possibility that this coupled with my foolish coricidin taking experienced to bring on my anxiety attack.

  • The DXM Adventures of CapitolJay (submitted by CapitolJay)... Another strange thing, was that none of us thought we were talking correctly, but somehow we all understood each other.

  • To Hell and Back (submitted by anonymous)... I had read all of the DXMfaq after my first use, and then today reread part of it. The one thing that stuck out was when it talked about seizures. It said that there was evidence that seizures and religious/alien experiences, were more prevalent in women and in left-handed people. Well, I am a woman, and I am left-handed, so draw your own conclusion from that.

  • The Lizard King's DXM Diary (submitted by The Lizard King)... I was lying on my sofa and felt as if I had fallen through the sofa, the floor, to the bottom of the apartment building... Everything was moving up and down, up and down, like a rollercoaster in oceans of purpleness

  • The Complete Dexmeet '98 Trip Report (submitted by Kid)...That was the end of Dexmeet 1998...We left the empty beer bottles and cough syrup bottles and dimenhydrinate packs around for the maid and for our own purposes of nostalgia.

  • Heavy in Washington (the Greatest Trip Ever) (submitted by Dextrometh Orphan)...

  • Third Plateau Overlooking Sunset Blvd: My Life As A Computer Program/Novel (submitted by anonymous)...I made seemingly unrelated thoughts become closely tied together. Logic takes on a whole new meaning. There is no clear path from one thought to another. Every thought I had was in some way related to any other thought I had. I was making CLEAR connections between a programming language, a novel, and Jimi Hendrix.

  • DXM Overdose: 2832 mgs DXM and 24 Dramamine Pills (submitted by Fueled By Hate)... Woke up in the E.R. with doctors all around me. I couldnt feel my body at all. I thought i was paralyzed. I wound up in a mental institution for 9days after getting out of the Hospital.

  • Novem Numero's Trip Log (submitted by Novem Numero)... I was doubting everything. Was I real, the house real, I had to close my eyes and trust myself. When I opened my eyes a hand was on my pillow. I watched it. It was my hand but it seemed dissembodied. I closed my eyes again. Remembering that some people used this supreme isolation to try to debate problems I tried. I thought of no matter that could equal the entensity of this feeling.

  • Bad Time with Coricidin (submitted by Vertigo)... I went to see if he was ok.. he had locked the door but he was cohearint. He was just laying there.. he got back up and his eyes I swear you not were 100% dialated like dark the size of quarters. And the rest (you couldnt see the iris) was BRIGHT fucking red...

  • Stroud Meets A Little Piece of The Universe (submitted by Robert Stroud)... Last Saturday, I took my first robotrip, a 4 oz. Bottle, with the intention of a mild second plateau experience. I got that plus a little part of the meaning of the universe...

  • I Stared at the Bathroom aall For 3 ½ Hours (submitted by be responsible)... My vision got so blurred that I forgot that I was on earth

  • Visuals out out YingYang (submitted by Markus)... It kept stretching until there was about a four foot wide narrow green light on the ceiling, then it started to bend and stretch in different shapes.

  • The Search for Plateau Sigma...and more (submitted by manda)... It was a very intense experience and now i imagine the whole trip is a reflection of my self being destroyed and rebuilding itself, piece by piece, from scratch.

  • Three Strange Days (submitted by Dead Piranha)... Hope Sandoval belted out the traveling music on my way home. There was a sense of peace in the car, as if it shared a secret with me -- that I'd regained a little of that high school defiance and ditched my responsibilities for a few hours. It hinted that I just might have the potential to make my dream come true after all, and that was good enough for now.
