Ok, so, trip report.
I took 10 pills right off the bat, my friend took 8 1/2 at first and took the other pill and a half about 90 minutes later. The 'peak' high wasn't as intense in terms of visual/auditory distortions (less flanging/stumbling for example) compared to bud, but it lasted longer and took much longer to totally cool off. Music was more enjoyable. I actually became really good at Tetris, haha.
From my calculations, I was at about 3.14mg/kg and my friend was somewhere between 3.1-3.6mg/kg. At this dosage, there were no auditory or visual hallucinations, just a stoning equivalent to a bowl or two of bud and a slight disconnection from reality. I noticed colors were much more vibrant in the latter part of the trip. It was also interesting contemplating religion and spirituality from a dissociated perspective.
The Guaifenesin had no nauseating effects (on me or my friend), although towards the last hour or two I started ripping MASSIVE amounts of ass. I suppose that's kind of a downside, but it wasn't uncomfortable at all, so what the hell. I get the sense that <4500mg is safe, 4500-6000mg is pushing it and >6000mg is begging for a projectile vomiting attack (at least for me). It's worth noting that I've vomited only 3 times in my entire life (I have a strong stomach), so if you've got a weak stomach I wouldn't recommend something with Guaifenesin.
Overall, I get the feeling DXM lends itself more to a personal experience than a group experience. The high is a more profound/introspective one than bud or alcohol, and I assume it only becomes more so at the higher doses. That's not to say I didn't find it enjoyable, however; I would definitely recommend DXM to those mature enough to get a handle on its effects.
