Pleasant, Chill, Almost Aglow
by Riemann Zeta
Citation:   Riemann Zeta. "Pleasant, Chill, Almost Aglow: An Experience with DXM (exp26035)". Sep 22, 2007.

345 mg oral DXM


Quite interesting, perceptual distortions (e.g. time dilation, aureal enhancement, slighty blurred vision) and a general feeling of well-being. For the first hour, the phenomenology was similar to that 3-4 drink 'nicely toasted buzz' feeling I get when consuming alcohol. After about 1.75 hrs, clipping errors (perceptual distortion of vestibular & visual systems, best described as a 'lag' in visual processing--it takes a while for things to catch up after movement) set in.

Music sounds amazing, I am listing to Radiohead's Kid A and Amnesiac and I am can hear patterns of sound that I have never heard before, despite countless listens. There is a slight feeling of falling when I lay down, as if I am levitating. At 2.5 - 3 hours, the falling sensation was replaced with gentle dizziness (not nausiating, kind of fun). My feet feel heavy and make loud booming noises when I step. At 4 hours, discrimination from an alcohol induced state is impossible. Side effects include dry mouth, stale breath, vile taste in back of throat and (quite ironically) coughing.
