has taken two Extra Strength Tylenols to reduce fever. It's 4:22 in the morning. Last pill was dropped at 12:00. Mental effects are gone. Fear has greatly been reduced, anxiety is not as bad, feel like fever is down.
Visual tinge is over. Feeling more normal except for persisting body effects. BP is still up, heart rate is still up there too. Fever is still there, but slowly reducing, Swim thinks. Still drinking water with citric acid. Will take glutamine later. Still using cold compress on forehead/cheeks. Time for a BP reading.
149/98, pulse 120. Now taking glutamine/citric acid in water for recovery/flushing system/temp control. Swim spent most of the "high" on top of his bed, under a fan, in a cooled as much as possible room, with a cold wet compress on his head, trying to remain calm, and breathe normally. Those all helped greatly. Trying to lie down and breath slow helped a lot.
Swim is shocked. Swim has had that "It can't happen to me" attitude with dirty drugs
. This is way worse than some cut coke
or H. Swim feels like one more pill, or any other drugs, and this would have been a death. Swim is very shaken by this, and will never trust street sources again for anything. Swim was overheating pretty fucking bad there.
Swim decides to experiment, and has a panic attack
, and pretty much a near death thingy. What the hell. Swim has had too many of those, just never drug
related ones. Swim's first time dropping pills and he fucking almost OD's on something. The negative body effects were STRONG. High BP, STRONG and fast heart rate, high fever (based on having previous sickness induced fevers, Swim would estimate 101-104, but this is heresay.), that was one of the worst drug experiences ever, if not THE worst. Swim cannot believe what happened.
Swim knows everyone says "Oh noes, there's PMA in my pills, ahhh", but he is almost certain this was PMA. Doing intensive reading over the past few hours, the only drugs that matched Swim's "high" were the following, with first being most likely and last least likely: PMA, MDE, MBDB
. PMA was spot on for effects, especially the "roller coaster" high, which reminded Swim of Propylhexedrine
, only less intense mentally. No up/down was attributed to MDE or MBDB from Swim's reading. And boy, nothing like fear to inspire serious reading.
Fuck, glutamine is nasty.
Swim luckily got his friend on the phone and kept her for about 2 hours. This GREATLY helped Swim calm down and be rational about things.
Thank everyone for their help. Swim has 2 pills left and will save them so he can send them to a lab once he gets the money. He wants them to be analzyed so he can know what did this to him. He wants to help others not make the same mistake he did. Swim feels tonight was a fine line between life and boiled brains.
Ouch, stomach pains. Most reading says this stuff passes out of the body around 5-6 hours. The mental effects are all gone, so Swim assumes body will fade in the next 2-3 hours, at most. Swim's fever is def. down, he can feel it.
What the fuck, bro.
If anyone cares, the pills are 6mo-1 year old and were from the Orlando area.
Please everyone, never have the attitude that the above can't happen with you.
Swim now and forever will recommend everyone to wash pills before using, and/or get them tested. This was a horrible experience. Swim has felt less fear having a gun to his head than while on this drug.
Swim is going to cut off his research on several potentially rewarding but potentially dangerous substances now. Swim is too shocked to risk hurting his body anymore now. Swim is terrified of stimulants
, once again. Swim is going to stick to what he knows, which are opioids
, and pot
Swim will post in this thread tomorrow, letting everyone know how the day-after goes.
Once again, thank everyone kindly for the help.
Talk about a wake-up call.

In case anyone is interested, Swim kept a report going the whole time until the bad things started happening. He stopped and came here after that.
This story leads up to Swim's original post:
" the following pills are from a batch that was presumed "fake" after taking one previously and having zero effects. keeping log just in case. expecting nothing at all to happen. this is mostly to sate curiosity.
8:10 drop 1 pill on pretty full stomach. pill tastes funny. kinda bitter but not. last time using pill nothing happened. swim smoked earlier today, also had 25mg ephedrine @ 5 or so and nitrous
at 6:30ish. pretty sober. fingertips feel funny from earlier.
8:54 pm nothing happening. feel like heart rate is up, not sure if it was related to earlier ephedrine. bp 140/80 rate 90, sober = 120/80 rate 60. will drop another within 30 minutes if no effects.
9:13pm drop number 2.
9:38 nothing. hand numbness from earlier today fading.
9:52 nothing still. little felt is placebo for sure. weed
hangover gone completely. going to consume alcohol
10:13 experiment over.
11:18- 11:47 swim notices he has pupil dilation (noticeable) and some strange funny feelings. he feels almost disconnected, yet light and calm. good mood too. what is in these? everything feels slightly more visual, and Swim would describe mood as aloof. This is not placebo. Feel light, like low dose DXM
without the unpleasant side effects
. Pissed that this is now superceding alcohol experiment. Oh well. Swim is honestly worried about possibly dropping more. feelings seem to be increasing. very mild visual distortion becoming more apparent. putting on music to set a mood, which is very important to swim. eye twitching. more is happening now. effects are picking up. oh man. visual distortion increasing as Swim types. Swim feels even lighter. Swim has never felt anything like this before. It feels like clear minded DXM or alcohol. Very strange. Swim wants to take another to see what happens, but will wait a while to see what happens. Swim has a funny feeling in his throat. Perhaps there is very small amount of MDMA
in the pills? Swim had tramadol
4-5 days ago, to note. Swim wants another pill but will wait a little. Perhaps the full stomach delayed absorbtion quite a bit. Emotions are more noticeable. Body starting to feel different, as if senses increased. Honestly have no idea what to expect from MDMA. Eye twitched a little earlier on. Mood seems bouncy, as in, going up and then going down. Skin feels warm. Heart rate is up. BP is likely up too. Swim has speed dick. Trying to determine if this is MDMA or Amphetamine
+ DXM. Being picky with music. Pacing and talking more rapid than normal on the phone like when under the influence of stimulants. Music seems more important. Reading on MDE, perhaps Swim is feeling MDE. Something like mild euphoria
of the amphetamine type. Not too strong an experience, pretty mild overall, just surprised at effects from what Swim assumed were bunk pills. Hands are ice cold, feel like sweating more. Reading more on MDE, sounds very similar to what Swim is feeling. Feels kinda like propylhexedrine in the sense that this is coming in waves. Bouncing between neutral/bad mood and good mood. Breathing passages are very clear. Def feeling body stimulation of the amphetamine type, but nothing too much. Swim would compare this to 100mg-150mg propylhexedrine, but milder, more mental. Feeling something like nausea. Unpleasant feeling in chest body area. This is a mild, ok high. Def not overwhelming. Can lie back and chill. Nothing groundbreaking here. Want to take another pill. Considering. Not tweaking. Woah, serious dry mouth.
11:52 digging music more than normal. in mood for faster tempo, upbeat music. being picky with music too. feel heavy, like DXM. eye twitching again. drinking water sucks. unpleasant to swallow. even just saliva. feel like a big lump in my throat. just caught Swimself jaw cleanching, never done that before on any drug, including amphetamines.
12:01 just took a third pill. slight behavior similar to fiending. want to be higher, only amphetamines really do this to Swim. Reading more, this could also be MBDB. Speculating based on effects. Trying to get comfortable. Trying to relax and enjoy this. Jaw clenching continues, but Swim does not even realize he is doing this. Mild CEV's? Unsure. Waves stabilising. Feeling urges to go pee even though Swim just did less than 5 minutes ago.
12:10 This makes Swim think of a little DXM/alcohol with a mild amphetamine dose. Not too bad, but nothing special. Better than nothing. Stomach feels completely empty. Food is unappealing. Trying to calm down a bit, mellow out. Bit stressed not knowing what to expect. Estimated heart rate is around 100-115bpm. Resting rate is usually 60bpm for Swim. Swim is lying down on his bed with music as he writes. Swim goes to bathroom again, feeling senses a bit more as time passes. Swim's heart rate shot up when he got up. Perhaps around 120-130bpm now? Swim needs to learn to accurately measure bpm. Def. a depressant/downer feel to this, mentally. Physically the opposite though.
12:29 Swim has just been reading, lying down, and listening to slow music. Feel like the good effects are tapering off. There is some type of contentment/euphoria, but it is mild. Swim feels like he has to pee again. Skin feels different still. Almost becoming more sensitive. Swim is mad because he has to be up for class in less than 7 hours. Swim hopes whatever drug he is on does not last too long, or he will be using alprazolam
to sleep. Swim's mind could fall asleep, but his body is very much awake. Tweaking and staying up the night sounds like a bad idea. Swim has a full day of stuff to take care of. Two classes and plans with friends midday. Interesting drug.
12:38 hands are still cold. Body temp is def. up. Swim now wonders if he is on PMA due to the slowness of taking effect. Swim regrets taking 3rd pill. Swim is trying to stay calm. Not too hard. Swim feels very hot.
12:46-1:00 Feeling more like this is PMA because of how long it took to take effect. still very upset and worried about PMA. Feel this is almost certainly PMA. Cold sweaty feet. Trying to calm down and ride this out. Drinking water, Drank a shot of water filled with citric acid to try and neutralize the 3rd pill and push out the first two. Thank god Swim decided to not get drunk just before the first two kicked in. Urine has been clear this whole time, to note"

5:21am BP is 158/86, Pulse is 94. Pupil dilation still present. Still rather feverish, like a sunburn type feeling everywhere, esp. on face. Perhaps 99-101F if he had to guess. It's been about 5 1/2 hours since last pill. 9 and 8 hours since the first two. Physical effects slowly fading, but Swim still worries a little. The panic attack is long gone, and so are most of the fears of cooking alive. Swim would love sleep but has to leave for class in 1 1/2 hours. Swim will use multivitamins and glutamine to refresh his body as much as he can. He will also use 5htp supplements later, after this stuff is out of his body moreso. Food with be healthy and natural for the next day or so. Starting to feel physical exhaustion
, as in, weak tired body. Swim actually expected a pretty bad comedown
/crash from all this, but the worst part was the "peak". Swim feels the aftereffects will be mild. Swim had at most, mild memory issues, and he always gets bad memory issues on amphetamines to note as well. Swim's brain is totally functioning normally though, all previously mentioned things aside. Thoughts are normal, rational. Memory and recall is good. Language skills are still there. Swim thinks he escaped any permanent physical damage. Perhaps Swim will try to go see a doctor in the week for a checkup.

5:50am Feeling tired and/or sleepy. Before dropping the pills, Swim was pretty much ready for bed. Today is going to be hell. Body starting to hurt. Muscles ache.

6:42 Pupil dilation mostly gone. Temperature after taking a lukewarm shower: 97F. Strange. Is Swim now under temp?
