32 tablets oral DXM


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

Hello my name is Clint and I have took coricidin cough and colds for six months straight taking from 16 coricidin to 32 coricidin. It was around november a friend told me about some cough pills with some kind of drug called DXM.

I asked around for a while and heard from a source and said it was a trip... My first time me and a friend split a box with 16 in it and swallowed 8 each about a hour later is was insane. My body felt like it was moving every which way. I was fucked up.

From then on I was takin coricidin weekly about six months later I was swallowing 32 of them at once YUCK! I took coricidin too much to explain to you how many times I tripped cause its too many.

My last night I was at my house I had washed the red coat of off them so it would kick in faster an hour later I was out of mind saying thiings to my self that were unreal about 1:00am my parents busted me un-aware of what the fuck I was doing I was saying things that even make since my parents knew what I was on and let stay in my room until About 8:00AM.

Win my parents woke me up and said get the fuck up your going to rehab I was sent off to a local rehab from that day on I have not touched coricidin since that day..
