Dextromethorphan hydrobromide is not classed as a hallucinogen, but as a dissociative anesthetic. Other dissociative anesthetics include Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas), ketamine, and PCP (Angel Dust).

The chemical structure of dextromethorphan (DXM) bears no relation to either serotonin or LSD. LSD and psilocybin/psilocin contain the "indole ring" substructure, as does LSA, DMT, 5-MeO-DMT, Sansert (methysergide), Imitrex (Sumatriptan) and serotonin. DXM is not based on the "indole ring" substructure.

There was a single post here, April 12 of this year, from someone claiming that a high dose of DXM stopped his CH. The poster had, to the best of my knowledge, never posted here before, never posted here again, and posted without leaving an e-mail address. Check it at the link below. Read ALL the other posts in the thread, especially the warnings that if DXM is to be tried, it must be tried ALONE. Many medications containing DXM also contain other drugs that will KILL you if you take too much of them.

This is not to say that DXM may not work. The anonymous poster claims to be chronic, and claims that DXM killed his CH, for at least several days after dosing.
