Introduction: I am an expert in terms of drug pharmacology and have done various other hallucinogens, Deliriants such as DPH and Datura, Psychedelics like LSD and Shrooms, and Dissociatives like Nitrous Oxide and Dextromethorphan. I have also tried weed a handful of times and Methamphetamine twice few years ago. I also have done Datura twice in which the 1st experience was like a living nightmare but the 2nd experience of Datura was pretty mystical because I spoke to my entity Mother, who died several years ago from Methamphetamine and Alcohol Addiction. So let us proceed to the Brompheniramine trip report.

I had a cold and was suffering from runny nose, fever and also a cough. I was taking Carbocisteine for my cough and Brompheniramine Maleate-Phenylpropanolamine for my runny nose. I have read about the anticholinergic effects of Brompheniramine and its similarities to Diphenhydramine and decide to trip out of it, just from plain curiosity. The trip went horribly wrong as I will explain it later in the report. Brompheniramine has a half life of around 25hrs. So during the first day of taking it, I decided to pop 6 tablets at one go. I was first feeling the effects of Phenylpropanolamine during the first hour, in which I was feeling very energetic, talkative and mildly euphoric. It was during at night and after the effects of Phenylpropanolamine was gone, I decided to go to sleep.

I woke up the next day feeling mildly intoxicated due to the Brompheniramine Maleate in my system. It would have been around 10am. My pupils were very dilated and still no noticeable hallucinogenic effects. My heart rate was higher than normal but I thought It was because of the Nicotine. So I decided to buy 20 more tablets during the afternoon and popped around 10 tabs at first. After an hour I was feeling the stimulation brought by Phenylpropanolamine and didn't feel the effects of Brompheniramine although my pupils were so large by this point.

On the 2nd day I woke up at 11am feeling a little wobbly and things started drifting a little and wobbling a little. I thought, this is it. But, I wasn't overly satisfied so I bought 30 more Tablets and decided to buy 12 Benadryl (25mg Tabs, Diphenhydramine). I took all the Brompheniramine pills throughout the afternoon and took all the Benadryl pills during the evening. I was tripping during at night but it was quite pleasant. I was constipated and didn't realise that there were still shit loads of undigested Brompheniramine tablets in my gut.

I stayed awake whole night and by 8am next day I was having a shit in the toilet and realised I started feeling really hot, and my mouth started drying up. My heart rate went over the roof and I was panicking, thinking about all the Brompheniramine pills I took. I ran to the Air condition to cool off and was still panicking thinking I was gonna die. I wasn't sweating and because of my Pharmacology knowledge, I overdosed on nicotine and finally sweated a lot like I have just ran a marathon. After that I slept and woke up again at 11:30am because my grandma knocked on my door for lunch. I told her that I wasn't hungry. I was still feeling really hot and my heart was pounding like mad. It was horrible. I started seeing shadow people in my bedroom and everything in my bedroom appeared really fluid like as if everything was jelly. Because of the hallucinations, I realised that I was already in a deliriant state and I was completely agitated. I voraciously puffed on my vape to take in as much Nicotine as possible to sweat again to prevent my body from overheating. I felt very nauseaus and decided to run to my toilet to puke. I puked around 10 times during that day. In the afternoon I awoke again to see a witch flying with a broom fighting a dragon outside my window and there were so many shadow people in my bedroom. The hallucinations were entertaining but the physical side effects were just horrible. The final hallucinations ended night during midnight that day in which my bedroom appeared to be like a metropolis of highly-intelligent insects and I could feel them crawling all over my body. Insects were just flying everywhere in my bedroom and it was entertaining because they had suits like those you see on sci-fi movies. But I was still physically ill.

I have been having a mental fog for several days after that experience and I will never mess around with Deliriants ever again.
