LikeMinded Posted June 16, 2006 Share Posted June 16, 2006 hey y'all --- So about a week ago, I started taking dextromethorphan (you might know it as Robitussin; I took it in the form of DexAlone cough gels) at 60mg (30mg b.i.d.), for the purpose of neuroprotection against my MS-like disorder. This dose is roughly 50-100% of the maximum cough dose, depending on whom you ask. I asked my (wonderful and intelligent, for once!!) NDoc about taking this, and she said it wouldn't hurt, but she didn't know if it'd help. However, she did say that I should be careful if I'm taking another CYP450-2D6-metabolized drug, since that'll change the pharmacokinetics of 'DXM'; I checked, and I'm not, so it should be fairly safe. One unexpected beneficial side effect I had was that it removed a lot of sand from the vagina I don't have. My boss, who has his own issues (read this post: http://www.crazyboards.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=11810 ), threw a tasteless joke at me a couple days ago... Me: "I don't know anything about biochemistry - I'm a molecular DNA biologist... have a textbook I could learn from?" Him: *archetypal groan* "You don't know anything about anything, okay?" Me: *rolls eyes while looking directly at him* "Got anything to correct that condition?" Him: "Fine, I'll give you one of my textbooks." As you can see, this is a significant improvement for me, as normally I get a lot of sand (last time he insulted me like that, I inadvertently turned cherry red [hard for someone of my milk-chocolate skintone], started uncontrollably shaking in rage, and stormed out of the lab and went home). In any event, I think my DXM treatment has overall made me more 'chill', as they say. In addition to having less sand with respect to my boss, I'm just overall less worrisome, and more importantly, less panicking and bitter about my near-term future. Oh yeah, if you want some severe biological/pharmacological dorkage on the DXM subject, read http://www.crazyboards.org/forums/index.ph...t=0#entry166734 .
