  oral DXM (pill / tablet)
    oral Chlorpheniramine Maleate (pill / tablet)


[Erowid Note: Most Coricidin contains CPM (Chlorpheniramine Maleate) which can be dangerous in high doses. See DXM Brand Warnings for more info.]

I took dex (1/2 a box of Coricidin) last night at a friday the thirteenth party with a friend. Everyone said that it was an ok drug and so I thought it would be ok. And I didn’t think it could be so bad cause it was cough and cold medicine. I had never robotripped or anything before.

Well I took it and at first I was fine, I had a margarita before I took the pills but I didn’t worry about it, stupid me. I got so confused and I just knew I would die. I could feel my body deteriorating. It was horrible. And to make it worse I knew about my best friend taking it too and I couldn’t find her. Some guy had taken her to her car and made sure she was ok. I was with a guy, a really good friend, and I like him a lot. He tried to take care of me for a little while. I was so confused and I couldn’t breathe. I caught myself so many times not breathing. My blood was freezing and I could feel it thru my skin. I could not keep warm. Then I would get this overwhelming sense of hot. It was like I kept going in and out of this trip, but it wasn’t good at all. I only wanted it to leave me alone.

I kept crying and going crazy so I went and lied down in a bedroom and I felt I had to go to the bathroom really bad. I went and it was horrible. Everything that came out was like a boiling liquid. I was so scared. My stomach hurt so bad. I locked the door and took a bath, I felt a little better but I was so nauseous I couldn’t see straight. Literally. I had no sense of direction and I felt I was away from myself like when I went in and out of the trip when I was out I felt fine and I could think but I still knew I would die. When I went back into it I went to the bathroom and let myself do what my body had to do which was shit out a lot of liquid nasty stuff. It was kind of like vomiting out of your ass but the stuff was so hot. I had a very high fever and I couldn’t take it.

I decided to try to sleep and I tried but I kept coming in and out of this trip. I kept falling into sleep but I would catch myself not breathing so I woke up and made myself breath. I was also on prescription depression drugs and no one told me about it...I thought I was going crazy. I was so out of control… I had lost it. I knew I wouldn’t wake up, so I let myself go. I knew I wouldn’t live no matter what so I just let it go... I cried and cried, but I finally fell asleep and I woke up early this morning and had my friend bring me home and I am babysitting while I am writing this...I will never do that shit again. And I am thankful for my life. And my best friends... Well I scared myself and everyone else last night.
