Erowid DXM Vault : DXM FAQ - Side Effects
The LD50 (dose at which 50% of animals die) of DXM doesn't seem to be well known. For a variety of reasons, animal assays of the lethal dose of psychoactives aren't always accurate. Nor have I ever found a published LD50 for DXM. So instead, I've decided to go on the basis of the few deaths that have occurred from DXM use, keeping in mind the amount of DXM people regularly consume for recreational purposes.

The LD50 of Diphenhydramine in rats is 500mg/kg. For humans it is not known, so be careful! Lethal doses in humans are almost always far less than lethal doses in rats (allowing for body weight differences), so don't try to take the rat LD50 and apply it to yourself. Also, note that the LD50 is the dose at which 50% of the subjects will die. A lower dose will still kill a smaller proportion of the subjects - i.e. it may be that the LD10 (i.e. 10% mortality) for rats is just 100 mg/kg.

DXM is a safe and effective cough suppressant ingredient found in over-the-counter (OTC) cough medicines. When used according to directions, products containing DXM produce few side effects and have a long history of safety and effectiveness. Some teens are attempting to get high by taking much larger than recommended doses of DXM in the form of OTC cough syrup, tablets and gel caps. In these high doses, DXM can produce hallucinogenic and dissociative effects.
Yes. The drugs manufactured now are greatly increasing the life expectancy of those living with HIV/AIDS, but there is still no cure.
Yes, however, I wouldn't advise ingestion. It can be dangerous to ingest just as your normal shampoo is, or toothpaste, or 100 gallons of soda pop. But overall it is pretty safe except for the severe diarrhea accompanied by ingestion.

Since food substantially increases the bioavailability of erlotinib and may increase the risk of adverse events, patients should be instructed to take Tarceva at least one hour before or two hours after the ingestion of food. The degree that food increases the bioavailability of erlotinib may vary; therefore, Tarceva tablets should be taken on an empty stomach to help ensure that patients obtain consistent plasma levels of the drug.

Not likely. Everybody reported to have been "poisoned" with GHB has "fully recovered," even a man who took 15 tablespoons (50-75 gm). There have been no long-term consequences identified in any of these cases despite close observation by attending physicians. It is exceedingly difficult to ingest the 50 to 150 gm that might threaten life. In high doses, for example, GHB causes nausea and vomiting, which strongly limits the maximum amount that a person can consume.

This is kind of like comparing apples to oranges. They both attack en masse and can both cause fatal allergic reactions, but that's where the similarities end. Africanized bees can overwhelm and kill even healthy non-allergic people, but encounters are rather rare. Fire ants can't overwhelm a healthy, mobile person and even hundreds of stings are rarely fatal. But, fire ant mounds are extremely common.
