Thought I would jump in on this thread with SWIM
Tonight SWIM decided to try DXM
for the first time, he purchased two bottles of Benylin Non Drowsy Dry Cough syrup with a combined DXM content of 375mg.
SWIM had eaten little during the day and at 8.10pm he ate an apple and an orange.
At approx 9.20pm he drank the two bottles of cough syrup (375mg DXM) with a couple of mouthfuls of 7up.
Since then, SWIM has sat on his sofa, watching movies, smoking cigarettes and drinking the occasional swig of 7up.
At approx midnight he ate a small meal as he felt that enough time had passed for the DXM to be absorbed.
It is now 1.40 am, more than four hours since taking the DXM and SWIM is very disappointed, he has noted no effects other than the occasional fleeting feeling of having had a couple of beers.
From his research, SWIM had been led to believe that a dosage in the region of 300mg was ideal for a first timer and that effects would be quite noticeable within 2hours of dosing.
Does anyone have any insight into what went wrong for SWIM? Was 375mg too small a dose?
