I'm 18, recently graduated high school, and I'm bored to complete shit during my free time. I'm a big guy, and have tried practically any psychoactive I can get my hands on. I would definitely consider myself as a heavyweight with most drugs. During my high school years, I would try any drug that was in circulation, xanies one day, LSD and molly the next. I've recently realized that some drugs have more of a negative effect on my life, so I've tried to cut down on substances I've found myself dependent on (e.g. Alprazolam, codeine, phenibut etc).
One day, during my reading week (which is a Canadian version of March Break for college students) I felt the need to try something new. I am a frequent user of Tylenol 3 w/ codeine, mainly because it is so easy to obtain from where I come from. I have tried a CWE (cold water extraction) a couple of times before, but always found it filtered out some of the codeine as well. So I decide to take 6-10 pills maximum every two days so that I don't exceed the 3000mg daily limit of acetaminophen.
So on a Wednesday afternoon, I tried my newest experiment. I knew that cyclobenzaprine was a potentiator of codeine, so I decided to take them in combination to record the effects. I was at my dad's house and knew he wasn't coming home for another couple of hours. I've been under the influence of codeine and been able to handle myself in front of him before, so I decided I'd be able to handle it in combination with cyclobenzaprine. I prepared my setting for a good trip (I had a speaker setup ready to blast music, and brought down some drinks) So now that all of my background info has been established, here's my experience with these crazy drugs;
T+ 0:00 - I took one tablet of cyclobenzaprine and four Tylenol 3 w/ codeine pills at 2:50pm in the afternoon.
T+ 0:20 - The effects of the codeine ( the "floaty" feelings in my arms and body) seemed to come on a lot faster than without the cyclobenzaprine. It usually takes 40 minutes for me to notice any effects, but it took half the time this way.
T+ 0:40 - The somewhat neutral effects (dry eyes, upset stomach) began and felt somewhat amplified by the cyclobenzaprine.
T+ 0:50 - While writing this report, my arms and legs feel incredibly heavy, and I'm struggling to write in coherent sentences lol. Thank god I proofread :)
T+ 1:00 - The effects of the codeine with cyclobenzaprine has been amplified significantly. The effects are similar to taking 9 tablets (270mg) of codeine by itself.
T+ 1:20 - I've noticed feelings similar to alprazolam, in which my body feels weightless and my thoughts are becoming incoherent. To help with the feeling in my stomach, I decided to hit a couple bowls.
T+ 1:30 - After hitting a couple bowls, I chose to take a couple more Tylenol 3s (60mg codeine) making it 180mg in total. I wait for the effects of the other Tylenols to take place.
T+ 1:40 - The effects of the other 2 tylenol haven't taken place yet, but my stomach has become more and more upset, and I've noticed it's making a lot of noises. (which is a common side effect of codeine from my experiences with it)
T+ 2:00 - The effects have completely taken place now, I feel drowsy and sensitive to feelings and noises. I haven't noticed any itchiness from the codeine, but walking has become somewhat difficult to do. Trying to walk up the stairs took me a minute or two as I was significantly slowed. When I look in the mirror in my bathroom upstairs, I notice my pupils have have contracted to the size of a dot (which is common when I take upwards of 160mg codeine).
T+ 2:10 - The sedative effects of the mixture is very pleasant, I begin listening to a couple of wavy electronic mixes that I listen to in order to relax and meditate. I was hesitant of the combination while researching the effects, but I'm not noticing any negative effects others reported (increased heart beat, sweating or shivering) I feel completely at ease and sedated.
T+ 2:30 - Knowing that the effects of the codeine and cyclobenzaprine will potentially last a surplus of 5 hours, I decided to settle down for the evening with my weed and vape, taking hits whenever I recover from the last one. Overall I'm smoking every 30 minutes or so.
T+ 2:50 - After hitting multiple batch bowls (Cannabis w/ Tobacco) I begin to dry heaving, I believe this is because of the bowls in combination of not eating. The only negative reaction I had with the combination of all these drugs was with my stomach. During the entire experience, my stomach felt off.
During the entire experience, my stomach felt off.
My stomach wasn't upset all the time, but would consistently feel different, like there was a weight on it.
T+ 3:00 - My dad got home, I was able to communicate without slurring my words, however when trying to talk to someone pretending to be sober, it was extremely difficult. I sounded fine (at least in my head I did) but what I was saying didn't make much sense. It was like I was trying to improvise everything on the spot, which is how I speak normally, but it was hard for me to make up sentences cause my brain was working at 50% the speed it was usually. Luckily, what I came up with was believable enough for my dad to shake it off as me just acting weird.
T+ 3:10 - Music is amplified to an extent I can only compare to MDMA. While listening to music through my speakers, I could feel every bone in my body vibrate from the bass. I didn't expect for music to be such a positive experience from my drug induced trip, considering I had mostly been taking depressants (besides weed), but music was by far one of the highlights of my trip.
T+ 3:30 - The effects of the codeine and cyclobenzaprine were now very similar to alprazolam. When I went upstairs to make myself a coffee, I was moving slowly and finding it difficult to keep my hands steady. Once I went back downstairs and sat down on my office chair, I found my feet fidgeting and my eyelids closing.
T+ 5:00 - The euphoria continues and the day goes on, easier to think and thoughts are clear. The overall body high lasts alot longer than if only taking codeine without cyclobenzaprine
OVERALL, I believe this experience was pleasant and I think I'll continue to dabble in the cyclobenzaprine realm. I think next time I'll up my dosage of cyclobenzaprine and limit myself to 4 Tylenols max.
