Avatar n tn Hi and welcome to the forum...the kids today get high or should I say ''trip'' on it kinda like the old LSD of our times...it is dangerous and you should have a heart to heart talk with your daughter about this...its really popular among teens these days....hope this fills you in a bit good luck and God bless.....Gnarly .
Avatar n tn Abuse is a different story but thats the case with all drugs. DXM is one of the safest out there which is why its over the counter and is not a controlled substance such as codeine. Over activity of the sigma 1 receptor is the only skeptical problem. That and the activity to the cerebellum, but unless you are taking it everyday in extreme dosages I can practically guarantee its not long term. Too many people jump to conclusions. I use DXM at the 316mg dose once or twice every..
Avatar f tn If getting answers as to why you are feeling suicidal is your goal, then you may want to ask more direct questions that may offer others on the forum the ability to guide you in the direction of healing. We're not going to give you drug advice on how to harm yourself. You will have to figure that one out on your own.
Avatar m tn The whole time there I lied and said that I had changed my mind about drugs but the first opportunity I got when I got out I was on dxm again. I was fearful to smoke weed because my parents said they'd be drug testing me but then I smoked weed a couple times anyway, had red eyes that gave me away, got drug tested twice, and both tests showed negative for THC, so I started smoking weed regularly again. Eventually my parents knew I was high all the time again so they kicked me out.
1571878 tn?1354953383 I am 1 year clean from Tramadol, today. More importantly, I am 4 days clean of dextromethorphan aka DXM aka Robitussin aka a self-imposed prison. Like Emily has done for thousands lost in the fight against Tramadol, I would like to provide a space for those who are losing their lives to DXM. There's still time to fight, and we need to support one another. This is NOT A SPACE to debate the 'merits' of DXM use.
1295911 tn?1272778101 otc medication for chills, multivitamins, potassium, soup, gatorade, imodium, cough syrup (don't know why; maybe to get the DXM high or numbing feeling?), and icy hot for muscle aches. i could also use some recommendation (based on experience) if we should cold turkey WD or use the suboxone? any support is needed, and any advice is greatly appreciated! we are all so excited to get off of this an ready to embrace any pain as freedom; it just helps to know that you are not alone.
Avatar m tn According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, long-term use and subsequent withdrawal of DXM involves symptoms such as insomnia, dysphoria and depression. DXM addicts also complain of itchy skin. The hardest part of DXM detox is the depression. The dissociative effects cause psychological issues with some recovering drug abusers such as psychotic episodes and night terrors. " http://www.thehillscenter.
Avatar n tn Abuse of combination DXM products also results in health complications from the other active ingredient(s), which include increased blood pressure from pseudoephedrine, potential delayed liver damage from acetaminophen, and central nervous system toxicity, cardiovascular toxicity and anticholinergic toxicity from antihistamines. The use of high doses of DXM in combination with alcohol or other drugs is particularly dangerous and deaths have been reported.
7224450 tn?1389321737 Bluelight (drug forum): 30-10-2008 21:19 ATF: Coricidin has two drugs in it: dextromethorphan and chlorpheniramine maleate (CPM). CPM is an antihistamine which has anticholinergic effects. This means it blocks acetylcholine in the brain. Acetylcholine is a necessary chemical to have, that is if we want to make and retain memories. Both drugs (DXM and CPM) are metabolized by the same enzyme in the human body, if I am not mistaken.
Avatar n tn Like not a few other Robitussin users, I was first turned on to the idea of heavy DXM use by seemingly legitimate online sources that downplay the long-term effects while hyping the drugs potency and spiritual value.
Avatar f tn Around 2-3 weeks ago I stopped abusing Marijuana and DXM. I'd been having slight sleep problems ever since and some small anxiety problems but nothing too serious. I've been dealing with this sort of thing my entire life so I'm fairly good at coping with it but I've had a few social things going on and really screwed my life up. My friends ditched out on my ever since I stopped doing drugs and I've had women problems. Now I'm awake 24/7 and have had some thoughts of killing myself..
Avatar m tn he followed the revised thomas recipe and thinks the DXM in OTC cough syrup has helped him alot..new one on me...the dxm but can see how it may help...just to wish u luck and i hope u find ur place of well being ...lots of support here..keep posting...dont forget the imodium...liquid is the best for me when i detoxed but not everyone has the runs as bad as i did i dont think...
Avatar n tn Dextromethorphan Overdose Symptoms: Euphoria, over activity, sense of intoxication, visual and auditory hallucinations, lack of coordination, stagger, stupor, shallow breathing.
574266 tn?1218516594 Day 5 for me is coming to a close and it was a groovy day - no problems what so ever to report and nothing in life, relative to this forum to fuss about. I decided I was going to start working on getting right with the Rx corner of my life and start with a new RA / Fibro / Ortho doc when I find one that is worthy of my grace.
Avatar n tn I understand his point, as we all know that most drugs (weed, dxm, shrooms, etc) are not really all that harmful when done correctly, and there's a lot of anti-drug hype out there. But what concerns me here is that he's got symptoms I can't explain for days after. What could these red blotches on his hands and trace hallucinations be a symptom of? What can long-term benadryl abuse actually do to you?
401095 tn?1351395370 Substance Abuse in any form substantially depletes your body of nutrients. In order to be effective during WDs most people state they needed to increase doseage levels beyond the recommend dose level; some substantially. Levels are for intensity of Detox WDs; post-detox WDs would be less. Use your own judgment about your needs and what you feel is best for you and what you are comfortable with and customize your own detox list to your preferences/needs.
Avatar n tn Earlier in the week, my stomach was so bad I was excreting pure black liquid which I’ve read could be from upper intestinal bleeding and, possibly, ulcers. To get me through the withdrawal, I turned to a much worse demon, DXM - dextrometorphan. I found the main UK cough syrup with DXM as active ingredient, and discovered I’m one of the “lucky” few which is able to have a severe ‘body high’ whilst under influence of the drug. I took 450mg per day for 3 days.
711721 tn?1229569242 I apologize ahead of time for this post, because i dont know of any sites to go to for my question, or if im posting in the proper forum. Anyways, let me introduce myself. My name is Billy, the real name is Brandon, but i have gone by Billy since my freshman year of high school. I am 16 currently, turning 17 on February 9th of 2009. I am a junior in high school.

776210 tn?1235554143 Through the years I have no doubt damaged my body by the use of drugs. I am clean now besides the occasional Vicodin and Marijuana.

I always drank in excess 4.Duster...did this stuff when I was younger...could not tell you how many times 5.DXM...I used the bad kind too...Coricidin HBP...
Avatar m tn Im affraid that this might be some sort of OCD as in all honesty, I only ever tripped maybe 6 or 7 times on DXM only cough syrup. Drugs arent my way of life. and When using them, they were only ever used little to moderately to "improve the quality of my life". There isnt any help for me I dont think. My case is unique for sure, and that tells me that it has to be something psycological. Im not typicly an angry person.
Avatar m tn I take Robitussin cough gels that just have the DXM 15 mg , 20 pills in a bottle. I've been taking a bottle a day for about 10 months. I'm not sure if I want to quit because it really helps with my anxiety. But I'm sure my liver and kidneys aren't happy. I hate having and addiction and having to hide it. How are you doing? I'm worried about what the withdrawals will be like. Although I know the psychological addiction will be the worst part.
653169 tn?1303449969 The main ingredient that are in otc cough syrups that can cause a high if taken in high amounts is dextromethorphan or DXM. I had a friend in the Marine Corps that would do this. He would drink a full bottle or more at a time and would get pretty messed up. I remember watching a intervention last year of someone who would take cold tablets. After he took them he could barely talk and would slur his speech big time! I sure hope your friend's mom can help her son if he is abusing.

Avatar f tn I feel the need to congratulate everyone on here for their personal battle with drugs and thank you all for sharing. I am on day 3 and am anxiously awaiting the wonderful "corner" that I will turn any moment now. I have to share that I got a professional massage today and although it felt good, I should have waited one more day. She knew something was wrong so I opened up to her and told her that I was on day 3 of withdrawals from percocet.
Avatar n tn I just feel so alone and afraid. My junior year of high school to my end of senior summer i was using drugs to cope with my depression. But now anytime i smoke some weed, or drink, it just amplifies my depression times 100. My nights usually end with me seriously contemplating suicide but usually pussying out. Here are the follow drugs i use to take: Weed = couple times a week Acid = 3 times X= 8 shrooms= 1 Benedryl = a lot during a 2 month period but stop DXM: 2 Please help.
Avatar n tn A dear friend of mine, advised me to check out this forum for support with me detox, and withdrawal off percocets. She has went through this herself, and has been a tremendous source of knowledge for me. I am into day 7 of c/t. Yes it has been rough, very rough, but I am determined.
535089 tn?1400677119 Ronald Siegel, a psychopharmacologist at UCLA said 'The widespread testing and reliance on tell-tale traces of drugs in the urine is simply a panic reaction invoked because the normal techniques for controlling drug use haven't worked very well. The next epidemic will be testing abuse." Byrd Labs has in its possession an internal document from the Syva Company, makers of the widely used EMIT test.
Avatar n tn Also, not only are ecstacy tablets produced from amphetamines, the tablets can contain MDMA and other substances such as amphetamines or Dissociatives like DXM or ephedra or antihistamines all of which can cause anxiety, especially amphetamines and DXM, and DXM resembles symptoms of schizophrenia and causes anxiety.
Avatar f tn You need magnesium capsules twice per day- Potassium in capsule form or via OJ and bananas- Hyland's Restful Legs tablets (Walgreens/Walmart)- Epsom salt in a very hot bath and soak- Also, some moderate doses of DXM (found in cough syrup and cold meds) will help RLS and other symptoms. I don't always mention this because of it's abuse potential but it works...
Avatar n tn There has also been many studies and still is study that Dextromethorpham (DXM) and similar drugs, such as Ketamine aid in stopping tolerance in opiates and also alleviating wd symptoms. That class of drugs are NMDA receptor antagonist and that plays a role in the severity of withdrawal symptoms and also tolerance to opiates, so there is also promise to be learned with these chemicals. Lofexidine, a drug very similar to Clonidine also is used often for opiate detox or wd.
