Nearly Fainting

Citation:   Anonymous. "Nearly Fainting: An Experience with DXM (exp24333)". Dec 12, 2007.

354 mg oral DXM (liquid)


This experience happened about a few weeks ago. I decided to do the usual, downing a bottle of robo and going out to the mall for a ton of stupid things to gawk at. Except this time I downed it on an empty stomach and without the water afterwards. I was looking to impress and show off by drinking the stuff straight, which was a bad move. So I felt the high about 45 mins later and everything was going smoothly until I tried to get up from the bench I was sitting on. I immediately knew I was going to faint, so I told my friend and she told me to sit down, and that she'd go get me some water. I have some circulatory issues or something because I would faint alot when younger.

I put my head on my knees and the world turned black. I knew I had a cold sweat from almost fainting, but the DXM just wouldn't let me recover from that feeling. I felt like almost fainting for about 15 minutes. I was drifting in and out of consciousness. I knew I didn't faint because I had very little comprehension, but still some. It took forever to come back to normal, and it felt like the world pulled me back into existance. I started seeing where I was, and colors and I knew I was alive again. I still can't recall those 15 minutes in between though. This was a very scary experience, especially because I was almost fainting in a public place and nobody even looked twice. Thank God I had my friend there, or I don't know what would have happened. I really hope you post this story to show the importance of a sitter.
