A friend and me were walking around one day, both pretty pissed off at one thing or another with nothing to do. We decided it'd be fun to trip at the time. We both had done Dimenhydrinate before, but it lower doses. So we went to Walgreens and bought a 32 pack of Drama and drove back to my house to get ready to trip. We got a movie to watch for something to do at first as it started to kick in.

So we each took 14 pills and sat back to watch the movie. We both took them on a full stomach so it took it longer to kick in than normal but started to feel the affects about 1 hour later. After about 1 hour whenever a sat up I had a very strange yet claming sensation in my head. I felt very good and totally forgot what I was mad about early.

After about 1 hour and a half I started losing interest in the movie so me and my friend went into my bedroom to mess around on the comp. T + 2 hours we were both feeling the full effects but having few hallucinations. I was getting pretty bad cotton mouth so I went to get something to drink. As I walked to the fridge I saw a man dressed in total back run out from around the corner and run straight at me. I could feel the wind off his body as he turned a corner right in front of me and hear his steps. Needless to say I was pretty scared.

I turned on every light in my apartment and had to talk myself into going to get that drink. I finally got my self to realize it was the Drama so I went and got the drink. So I come back to my bedroom to see my friend hiding from what he said was a dog chasing after him that looked like Cujo (from the movie Cujo). I talked my friend out of it and the dog disappeared from his sight. The computer was turned off and a looked at the black screen. It was perfectly flat but then started to ripple. Then it went into a full set of large spikes coming out of the monitor. Faces followed out soon after and I found myself not afraid at all and even tried to talk to the faces but they normally just disappeared. I felt much more creative than normal and would find myself able to freestyle for longer than I ever had, and easily at that. But I also found myself having a very bad short term memory and found myself trying to think of what I was just thinking about and was getting very confused. Then about 6 hours later I was still tripping pretty hard and found that sleeping felt better than anything, so I went to sleep. In the morning I felt get with almost no after effects.
