Never done it before. I've been reading about it for a couple hours now
online and I keep getting mixed reactions from people. Some say that
it's great and others say to avoid it. The polystirex
in it makes it take longer to kick in, but actually how long is it
before it starts working? With regular DXM, SWIM usually feels it about an
hour into it. Also, some people say that with a 3oz bottle of Delsym,
you will still be tripping the next day. Is this true? Thanks for any

I don't think you should avoid it, it is worth trying, everyone has different opinoins on it. It will take about twice as long to kick in, and last longer. SIWIM never has still been tripping the next day off delsym even when he did 8ozs. (a 5 oz and a 3 oz bottle)It will last longer though. Try a 3 oz and see what you think. But the taste is nothing like any other cough syrup, really easy to down. Kinda thick but not unpleasant tasting. SWIM prefers this to tussin syrup, more or less because of the taste, he usually takes a bottle of robo gel caps with it. About twice the cost though in most places.
Wow Delsym can be pretty unpredictable, I've heard plenty of experiences such as this one from merely a 3oz. with the trip lasting into the next morning/afternoon, however for others they need much more delsym than they do Tussin for a strong trip. I always expected people would need more delsym to Tussin this is the case for me and several others.
Not to long ago a experiment took place taking 8oz's of delsym and the dissociation took 2 hours to begin to work its way up the plateus. Delsym starts very mild, the idea of wondering whether it was going to do anything more was present for a good 3-4 hours after drinking. About the fourth hour is when it really hit.
Delsym has a different dxm/dxo ratio due to the polystirex so the 'trip' was noticably different. Delsym due to the slow release gives more DXM and less DXO in the body. DXO is what provides the "stoning" and dissociative effects. While the stimulation, delusions, and phychosis like states are stronger with dxm. Delsym gives more of these and less dissociation.
So depending on which effects you would like to be more pronounced, is which you should choose dxm hbr, or dxm polistirex. SWIM personally rather has more dxo to dxm. But he rather drinks delsym than robotussin.
You can find more information about delsym on other threads of this forum. But just for the basic info it is a kind of cough syrup with Dextromethorphan polistirex, It is a plastic coated form of DXM. It is introduced into your system throughout time, and because of this lasts much longer. Some people like delsym as there source of dxm while other stick to DXM hbr. The feeling of the trips are noticably different if you still want to read more do a search on this forum on delsym. Lots of questions on this have been answered.
Just thought I'd update on this after SWIM tried it. You couldn't have been
more right when you described the delsym trip. It was a different trip
than he usually experiences with other DXM hbr containing products.
Delsym seemed to put SWIM in a more pleasant state. It was very
enjoyable. It also worked its way up as you said. At first it felt a
little different and SWIM wasn't sure if this was it or not, but then it
all came and hit him at once later on.
ya, delsym definitely will give you a pretty nice experience. It did take 2 hours to kick in for SWIM. Definitely makes music more interesting and fun. The dissociative effects seem to take longer to occur also. It took a couple days to feel completely back to normal after using this stuff.BUt its pretty nice.
Delsym has time-released DXM, unlike most other medicines. When I first
tried it, my usual 300-450 mg dose really didn't affect me as much as
regular DXM, but it lasted much longer. So I would tell you to maybe up
the dose a little, but keep in mind that it could last 6+hours. And
also, it will take longer to kick in, so don't sit around for an hour
and wonder why nothing is happening and take another big dose. You
could end up slipping into a surprise 4th plateau which could seriously
I know its late to post but what thst hell...
I love dxm but hate tussin, the first time i did delsym was at the mall my friend got 2 bottles of those tussin gel caps and I WAS going to get some to but I saw delsym(never heard of it before then) Saw the drug facts and was 2wice as strong as tussin so I got a 5oz bottle...
later that day my friend only took one bottle that he had a waas haven a very good time and said he would just save his other for later. Well I wasnt trippen at all (well just a little ,but wanted his bottle) so he gave me his BIG mistake. downed his and went on.
we later found a guy that took us to the liqor shop and we bought a bottle of henisy(spelling is more then likly wrong)I think I took his bottle at just the right time to where they would peak at the same time. and now I was trippen big cokanut sized balls everything was spinning and if u tripped before I got that stenken doble vision.
we got back to his house and drank a quarter of the henisy between us like 5 shots each. this is around the time an alien came into the room and we traded wallits (i had a leather wallet with an anarchist A on it and his was a leather wallet with flames up the side, I still have it to this day it was like 2 years ago) but my wallet still had 22.50 dollars in it oh well.It turned out that the alien was my frien M,
after this I kinda blacked out or I just dont remember...
so yeah dont dose and then think its not working so you dose again, AND dont drink to much alchahol eather. buy.
Delsym is pretty fun. I prefer the trip that robo gives over Delsym,
but I can't stand the taste of robo syrup. I took 2 bottles of robo gel
caps the other day along with a 3oz bottle of Delsym, totalling 1131mg.
It was the highest trip I have had to date. The gel caps hit me first
and I was tripping pretty hard off of those, then I could feel myself
climbing as the Delsym kicked in. Delsym takes longer to work because
of the polistyrex in it.
Delsym was quite nice. I don't know why there is such a bad rep associated with it. a lot of people definitely seem to like it. One bottle of Delsym was by far much better than one bottle of robo/cvs brand. Delsym does have more dxm in it, but most people have said that it is not as intense as robo even if there is more dxm in it. The only bad thing about the delsym is that i still felt the effects for the next 2 days roughly. It was harder to concentrate and do math kind of work. With the "shorter acting" dxm there weren't really hangover effects.
its in a 3 ounce bottle, so according to my math that would be 540mg.
/font>one ounce = 28 349.5231 milligrams)</font>
ok i believe i once read on erowid that when you take doses over time, that more of it is converted into dxo.
so first, is dxo good?
can someone list the negatives and positives, in a comparison of dxm and dxo.
because i think that if one where to take this they would be getting 540mg of dxo, as opposed to dxm.
also i found this, which talks about how very easy it is to seperate dxm polistirex from syrup (easier on your liver)
DXM Polistirex [already mentioned, but whatever...]
2L pop bottle
A razor blade, or exacto knife
What you do:
Pour your syrup into the 2L bottle. [note: do not use a 2L bottle
for doses under 900mg. Use a smaller bottle.] Then, add water. Fill the
bottle up about 2 inches from the top, and give it a shake to get the
syrup mixed in there.
Next, simply leave the bottle upright for 2+ hours. I usually mix up
the syrup and water 3 or 4 hours before I plan on dosing. After 2+
hours is up, you'll notice a collection of powder on the bottom of the
bottle. Thats what you want. Thats the DXM.
Once the bottle has sat for 2+ hours, take it into the bathroom, and
set it in the sink. Now, use your razor to cut through the bottle near
the top, to let some of the fluid drain out. Then, make the cut go
further down, to let more drain out, and further down, until you're
about 1 inch from the piles of powder. [note: you can syphon it out,
but I find this to be an easier way of getting rid of the unwanted
Once theres only about 1 inch of liquid above the powder level, cut
the bottom portion of the bottle off. Then, use a spoon to get as much
of the liquid as you can out, without disturbing the powder.
Now you have two options. What I usually do [simply because its
easier] is then pour about a mouthfull of coke [coca-cola!] into the
bottom portion with the DXM. Then I swirl it around the get the DXM
unstuck from the sides of the bottle. Then, I down it all in one gulp.
It should look clumpy and gross, just drink it."
well anyway, my math is really bad and im sure a lot of this could be
wrong, infact im not sure if i even rememebr correctly about the dxm
being converted to dxo.
i just tried the extraction method and it worked great, but the trip wasn't. i got the powder out of the syrup at 9 pm. and swallowed it. by one in the morning i still wasn't feeling a thing. so i went to sleep. i wake up at 4 in the morning buzzing like mad. but the buzz was purely physical. my mind didn't feel any different. i didn't feel high at all, i just felt really dizzy and annoyed that i couldn't get back to sleep.
does dxm polisterix usually require a higher dosage, i got about 350 mg worth of it th inkin about usin for my first time tomorrow night instead of going out and buying some other stuff. is that a good dose?
With Delsym it takes me about a good 2 1/2 hours to begin feeling
effects. Polystirex trips usually peak a good 5-6 hours for me and then comedown is another few hours. With Hbr, I peak for about 3-4 hours. So
yeah, Delsym trips do seem to last longer for me, but they don't seem
to be anywhere near as strong as an Hbr trip.
wow ok well i did my trip, u might have seen my other thread i gotta update it tho because right after i wrote it it hit me waay more intenstly i would say it peaked for me at 8 hours which is a really long time but i took at 430, once it hit around 12 or 1230 is when it hit me hard and i stayed up for another 2 hours trippin nicely
So i tried that Dsylum tonight. I took a 98ml bottle at 10:30 (currently 1:44)on an empty stomach but it was poured into a little carton of OJ. The trip is pretty good, not as intense as i was expecting 534mg to be. I get a better trip off of Robo Max. Maybe i'll try to mix robo with grapefruit, for a 354mg dose. What is everyone elses opinion on dslyum? Maybe there is more to come for me, hell i'm only a few hours into it
Delsym alone isn't that great for me. If I'm going to take Delsym, then
I like to take it on top of some HBr. It has a much slower come up than
HBr and isn't as intense due to less DXM being converted to DXO. If I
take it on top of HBr then while I'm peaking on the HBr, it seems as if
it still continues to grow because of the Delsym kicking in. Delsym is
definitely the best tasting syrup though, but it's a bit expensive.
I remeber when i first started tripping Delsyum was very fun, a 4oz
bottle made me feel great and it lasted longer but now if i took a 4 oz
bottle of Delsyum i eally dont feel anything maybe a bit stumbley but
thats it, My fav way to do DXM now is drink a 4oz bottle of Robo Max
then take a bottle of Coguh Gels, The cough syuprt kciks in within 30
minz usally then while its peak start coming up the Cough Gels kick in
and its an intense trip.
Delsym is a polistyrex, thatis it isa sort of digestable plastic, which takes longer to break down than hydrobromide (HBr) which Robo is. The thing widh delsym is that you will trip longer, but not as intense because the polistyrex releases less DXM (which is converted to DXO) at a time, because it is time released. HBr, is a lot quicker and the trips will be a lot more intense.
Personally i would take a bottle of Delsym (the 89ml) and then ~150mg of DXM HBr (which ever way you want). I like to wait a little bit to take the HBr, because i like the very subtile effects that the polistyrex gives, and then once those effects are knowticed, i go for the full on trip. Doing it this way will lead to a very intense, and long trip. A whole bottle of Delsym (89ml) can keep me tripping for at least 12 hours, you will go to bed tripping, and wake up tripping. While the trip might not be as intense you will feel it for as long.
Delsym for an 89ml bottle has 534mg of DXM which is time released. and any HBr (a lot quicker to break down) on top of that will make the trip more intense.
ya had my first delsym trip last night... it is a lot laster more teasing effect... i got to about 2nd plateau peak before it started to taper off... thats when i took 600mg robo's but i passed out when those peaked...
that was taken about 5+ after dose... but ya it was alot longer.... the trip was longer... i still got hanging effects... its about 3 now...
You deffentally need to take some HBr with some Delsym. The only reason behind this is because the Delsym is time released and it wont be as hardcore of a trip... some HBr, will work off of the time released and make for a good time.
Dip- The other night i was on 89ml of Delsym, about an hr after taking it i took 10robo gels. Then ~2 hours later i took 20 robo gels. I had a few sips of a bicardi and coke. And then smoked. I ended up having a crazy trip... It was my last trip. you and unico were right i was hitting DXM WAY WAY! to hard. If you want to read more then look into the DXM experiences section. If i can remember what happened i'll post a report of my own.
I have a 3oz bottle of a cough suppressant called "Delsym". Has any one
ever tried this stuff before. I wouldn't ask except it says that it
contains dextromethorphan polistirex rather than dextromethorphan
hydrobromide. It is also a thick goop that smells terrible, way
different than regular robo. The only reason I'm thinking of giving it
a shot is because it says that "Each teaspoonful contains
dextromethorphan polistirex equivalent to 30mg dextromethorphan
hydrobromide". Any help is appreciated.
