>>61798792 To have a much shorter and more visually psychedelic experience maybe but DXM is a different kind of thing
>>61798851 So do a lot of things but with DXM if you do enough, you will forget you are a human being very quickly. I don't see what it being sourced from otc cough syrup has to do with anything. Would taking pure DXM Hydrochloride salt be a more rewarding experience (surely it would be cleaner/better - still not as clean/safe as maybe somethiing like lsd or a serotonergic)? All drugs exist in a cultural matrix according to Wade Davis that alter our experience but there's no reason to think of DXM as "just a shitty teenage high" or "cough syrup high" rather than a dissociative anesthetic like ketamine or pcp or mk801 et al or an nmda antagonist
>>61799055 yea that's all well and good but the fact remains that it's supposed to be for coughs and it makes your stomach feel terrible and it's horrible for your body and it is definitely just a shitty teenage high
i listened to sigur ros when i did dxm and it was one of the coolest things i've ever experienced. in general when i trip i only listen to music if i feel like it, though. there have been times where i preferred not to
that being said, it's not really worth doing dxm at all if you aren't hitting third plateau
>Due to dextromethorphan's SSRI (selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor)-like action, the sudden cessation of recreational dosing in tolerant individuals can result in mental and physical withdrawal symptoms similar to the withdrawal from SSRIs. These withdrawal effects can manifest as psychological effects, including depression, irritability, cravings, and as physical effects, including lethargy, body aches, and a sensation of unpleasant tingling, not unlike a mild "electric shock".
>A formal survey of dextromethorphan users showed that more than half of users reported experience of the following withdrawal-symptoms individually for the first week after long-term/addictive dextromethorphan use: fatigue, apathy, flashbacks, and constipation. Over a quarter reported insomnia, nightmares, anhedonia, impaired memory, attention deficit and decreased libido. Rarer side effects included panic attacks, impaired learning, tremor, jaundice, urticaria (hives) and myalgia. DXM has also been "known to increase the frequency of complex partial seizures in epileptics by 25% compared to placebo." Frequent and long-term usage at high doses could possibly lead to toxic psychosis and other permanent psychological problems.
>Erectile dysfunction and diminished libido can be a longer-term effect (years to decades) of many narcotic analgesics due to development of central hypogonadism; this appears especially common in individuals with significant melanin deficiencies, as the hormones tied to melanin production affect the absorption and conversion of these analgesics into progesterone. Additionally, the haplotypes of about 48% of the indigenous population of Britain aggravate the condition, as the E647 sequence underwent epigenetic degradation and became a pseudogene. The chance of vulnerability is doubled for males, as the critical sequence is located on the X chromosome.
interesting about brits, i would never have expected that
That's accurate, but it can be very interesting to be on a seemingly different plane. In my experience DXM is like the inverse of psychedelics like LSD: the latter make you feel connected and "at one" with your surroundings, while the former take you completely inside yourself. Anyway, complex, machine-y music is usually a great go-to. I'd recommend >Oneohtrix Point Never >Death Grips >Arca >Aphex Twin >2 8 1 4 >Techno Animal >etc. Have fun on the plateaus, OP.
