swim plans on taking 20 pills (300mg) today. hopefully this amount will have most of the effects of DXM alone, without bud, although swim will probably smoke later on.
does this sound like a good dosage to feel the effects? (swim is about 5'9 and 180lbs)
Increasing dosages of DXM only intensify the effects until a certain dose is met. Once that dosage is exceeded an entirely different set of effects take hold.
These are called plateau's, and there are 4 of them. There's also a fifth plateau called plateau sigma. Plateau sigma is not reached by taking a certain dose at once, but rather taking certain doses at certain intervals.
First and Second plateau are much more recreational, where as third and fourth plateau shouldn't even be attempted without a trip sitter.
A beginner to dextromethorphan
should treat it with much respect, it certainly deserves it. That being said, someone new to dextromethorphan should start at first or second plateau. Doing that also gives the benefit of knowing what each plateau is like, not to mention it minimizes the possibility of harm, and strain on the body.
There is a ton of information floating around the Drugs
-Forum, and the internet about dextromethorphan, my Cheshire Cat urges SWIY to read some of it. Here is a thread that SWIY can start with. http://www.drugs-forum.com/forum/sho....php?t=137937&
Erowid, and Dextroverse are also incredible resources.
As I said above, treat dextromethorphan with respect.
The way to figure out a good starting dose is to read about the plateaus, and what doses it takes to reach each specific plateau. Then do the math to determine how many milligrams per kilogram of body weight SWIY needs to reach the desired plateau.
