850 mg oral Dimenhydrinate (pill / tablet)

It all started one night when me and my buddies (mind you we are underage, age 16-18) were out looking for alchohol.. with no luck... we find a friend in town who gives us these motion sickness pills, 'equate' i think.. so we proceed to take them then head home, taking 12 as he says to 'get a good buzz like alchohol'... we wait, an hour comes still nothing... so me and another one of my buddies take more.. i end up taking 17 (50 mg dimenhydrinate each) and he takes 15... we take some whisky we found in his dads cabinet, me 1 shot him 2... still nothing.. i was thinking, 'dammit these are worthless' i had been feeling an odd emtpy feeling but nothing totally different from what i usually felt at 1 am with nothing to do except try to watch porn through the static on skinamax... so i go home and go straight to bed.

i wake up at prolly around 1:30 or 2 having to pee really bad, i get up out of my bed really quick (bunk bed, i sleep on bottom) and fall flat on my face.. my legs felt as if each one weighed a ton and my head felt like it wasn't there. i find my way to standing position and am like.. ok these effects suck. i stumble to the bathroom, and my eyes I see in the mirror are so fucked, all red and all.. i was thinking damn i od'd... then i here my mom giggling in the roomwith dad talking to her, so i turn off the light and creep around in there, hearing voices saying my name.. so i was like 'oh shit they know i do drugs, they are worried' so i go in there trying to figure out what the hell they are talking about. i see nothing but them sleeping as usual... and then the voices stop as i get closer. so i go back to my bed, jump in, only to wake up as if i hadn't slept... hearing them talking quietly, my name occasionally, and i had to pee again. so i went to the bathroom quietly hearing them talk louder and louder then quiet completely.

this went on til prolly around 4 am. then i wake up at about 5:45 it is a bit light out and i hear two voices at the end of my bed saying look at that spider chasing that moth.. and i look and there is a spider chasing a moth.. i jump out of bed and i start seeing these streams of flys or something like that streaming around the carpet, pretty cool shit, i could feel them hit my feet like fish nibbling toes... i would catch myself talking to people that weren't there, mainly my buddie down the street.. i would be talking to the tv and all the sudden it would stop talking to me and i would get pissed... i would wake up in a conversation with my electric globe lighting thing... i saw spiders all around (note i hate spiders) I saw spiders in my bed again, so i didn't go to bed..

my coordination was also fucked.. i couldn't even reach to things right.. couldn't direct hands... it was interesting, but then i had a horrible hangover the next day.. all day.
