500 mg oral Dimenhydrinate (pill / tablet)


I'll admit that I've had experiences with many drugs to date, and I was enormously disappointed with Dimenhydrinate, which I took in the form of Dramamine. I had been reading about this stuff for a while, so I searched this house to see if we had any. I can't go to the store and buy it because my parents might suspect something. So when I searched hard enough I scrounged up a total of 500mg of Dimendyrinate (8 chewable Dramamine tablets at 50mg each, and 4 of the tablets that come in the Dramamine tubes that you swallow, which are 25mg each, which makes a total of 500mg).

So anyway, I had high expectations of this drug after I had read many reports on it. I expected hallucinations, or a DXM-like buzz at the very least. I recall taking the stuff around 10 or so, and then waiting for about an hour. I had a VERY mild feeling of nausea, but it passed over a period of time. I wasn't feeling any pains in my body at the time that I took it, and I was actually quite happy, and expecting some excitement. So I sat around basically rotting in front of the tv, and got up to walk around every now and then just to see if I was off balance slightly. After about an hour and a half I did get SLIGHTLY light-headed, and SLIGHTLY off balance, but this feeling passed after about 20 minutes. I didn't have any abstract thoughts, or any different views on life, but on the next day I recall not remembering hardly ANYTHING from the night before

. Overall I was disappointed, but I believe that upping the dosage would do the trick.

I've now come to the conclusion that I naturally have a major tolerence to drugs. I can drink coffee and BARELY get any energy. I can take sleeping pills and stay awake (this, of course, depends on the sleeping pill. Obviously there are some sleeping pills that could put me out). I can take HUGE doses of DXM and not get extreme effects. I've had up to 708mg before. I didn't have any hallucinations, out-of-body experiences, or anything. All I got was major confusion, mild paranoia, extremely blurred vision, extreme loss of balance, and other things. The point is that I still don't get any hallucinations, or anything.
