[Erowid Note: The author of this report erroneously refers to Benadryl as dimenhydrinate.]


I ingest 18 Benadryl 25mg Dimenhydrinate + 30mg sublingual of codeine for a little mellowness. Totally empty stomach


Put on Nirvana-Nevermind, which usually puts me in a good mood. I heard dmhyd makes music sound different in a weird sort of way.


Feel a bit sleepy, It's already around my bedtime anyway. I decided to do it around when I was tired, since I didn't want to take it during the day, only to fall asleep during the middle of the day and screw up my sleeping schedule.


Feeling a little more sleepy. I already feel the subtle effects of codeine, sort of warm feelings. I can almost feel the benadryl digesting now, it will probably be coming on soon.


I grab a pepsi and start drinking it. The music I'm listening to seems a little more hollow. I feel a slight euphoria, a little light-headed and sort of warm. Probably just the codeine again.


Feeling fuzzy headed. Sort of dizzy now and heavy. More tired.


Feel very blank headed, my thought process is very slow now. Very off-kilter. The sleepiness is getting worse. Time seems to be going slower.


Time is going by VERY SLOWLY now. 1 minute feels like 20 minutes now. Feeling a new sort of euphoria rising, a very small body high, and it doesn't feel like the codeine this time. The pepsi is becoming tasteless and my tongue is moving very slowly.


Nothing new. Just even more sleepy.


I have been sitting down the whole time, so I decided to walk around and see how it is. Very heavy legs and arms. Getting harder to type and think. Stomach feeling sort of queasy. A little more euphoria, I can definitely tell its not the Codeine.


Taste buds are almost totally gone. Really tired and out of it, don't know if I can continue documenting OMG saw my first hallucinotgetic. A flash of green on the wall for about a second. It's getting hard to swallow.


So sleeepyy. Very mindless. Might fall asleep.


Feeling very fucking woozy, very tired. A little hard to breathe now, but nothing serious.


Almost nodded off. No hallucinations yet except for that green flash awhile back.


Still NOTHING! I thought this would be enough time for it to kick into effect of a deleriant.


Ingested a 12 pack of 25mg, bringing my total too 750mg now. I thought maybe the dose I took wasn't enough for the deleriant experiance.


Sleepiness has seemed to pass. Getting more of a buzz at least. Almost like Codeine, but a lot weaker. Thank god. I have to wait another half an hour to see if I get some hallucinations.


Nothing has changed. I'm really surprised that I didn't fall asleep. I usually fall asleep with a half of a Benadryl.


I'm surprised, but I'm getting a little more euphoria. It feels like I took about 60-80 mg of codeine. A warmness in my body is evident when I move around. Feels good, but a little less pronounced than opiates.


Even more opiate like euphoria. Man I should definitely mix this with a lot of codeine next time. As I'm writing this, I am now feeling rushes of warmth. It couldn't of been brought up by the codeine i had earlier because I never got this kind of a buzz off 30 mg of codeine.


Still no hallucinations. I'm defintely really fucking out of it right now. I'm hoping to see a nude woman pop out of nowhere lol. I was laughing at that for 3 minutes straight. Feeling a little crazy.


Very dissapointed now. It's not working. And wow, I swear this euphoria is pretty good. Uh oh, as I'm typing this i'm goin insanae. My mind is turning into a fuzz and mixing stuff up.


Not talking like myself any more. There seems to be milli-second of time between when I say something, and when gets out. Its really funny to talk. Very hollow sounding.


I am WAYYY fucked up right now. Saying weird things and doing them. Almost no control over what I say or do.


I said lemon round pie is a pie (talking to my self) and some other phrase. For no reason. Oh my god, I can barely write any more, I'm in a daze of stupor.


My mind is gone right now. Not thinking at all.


Every television show is sort of warping into another. I'm losing it. I popped a 10 mg dose of valium, because I'm very ansty and don't want a bad trip

Lost track of time. I am messed completely. Its like getting piss drunk. I'll continue with my experiences:

If I lay back, I will instantly drift out and sleep. And I just thought that this notepad document I wrote it on was a goddam webpage, how strange.

Now I'm fading in and out over and over again. My body still has a glow.

I think I heard an audio illusion from somewhere, hmm probably not.

My stomach is queasy, and time is passing by REALLY SLOW! I think slower than marijuana. I can barely cmmunicate here. I am so out of it. I'm wat

DMX - which company makes the d

(note I edited everything but this last sentence before posting it, just to show how messed up I was at the end. I spelled a lot of words incorrectly and my grammar was off, but at the end nothing made sense.)

After I woke up I still had the hollow voice sound and the general Benadryl hangover. Its a very depressing one at that.
