I can recall a single time that Coricidin
was used in my youth. A friend and I had intended to embark on a new psychedelic
journey and some how decided upon DXM
in the form of Coricidin as we had not known of the chlorpheniramine
maleate they contained and the side-effects it induced. We took it slow and decided not to ingest the large amounts that had been suggested online, I only swallowed 4 and my friend swallowed 6. Despite what may be comparably miniscule doses to others, we both suffered devastating side-effects as a result.
The night of the trip for me was not so bad, and was in fact slightly enjoyable. My friend however was feeling very sick pretty early in the night and decided he would return home and hopefully sleep it off. As the effects began to recede that night, I departed from my sitter and returned home to sleep. Everything seemed normal enough thus far.
The next morning I awoke feeling groggy, toxic (nausea, aching, headache, dizzy, drained) and compared to other drugs
I had tried, I had never experienced such a heavy physical hangover. I got to the bathroom and noticed my pupils were still slightly dilated, and I had a hard time keeping my jaw from trembling (similar to what one does when cold, however I did not have any cold stimulus to generate this response). My friend called me and told me he was still suffering heavily from the night before and I invited him over to keep him from suffering alone.
After smoking some bowls of cannabis
, we found the negative physical symptoms would become replaced by something slightly enjoyable, and the only troubling thing was the jaw trembling. I believe the entire experience was almost three days, with the first 12 hours being a strong 'psychedelic' experience, with the remaining 48 hours being a slow diminishing of troubling physical symptoms with some mild 'psychedelia' brought on by cannabis. I say 'psychedelic' as I would describe it more as dissociative and delusional, things I have never experienced with any psychedelic.
