Taking dxm a day after an SSRI????
    #15474271 - 12/06/11 01:31 PM (2 years, 10 months ago)

I'm posting this here because nobody answered in Psychedelic or ODD forums.

I took cymbalta yesterday at about 3:30pm. It's half-life is about 12.1 hours. Is it safe to take a 3rd plateau dose of DXM after 2 half-lives of cymbalta? That was the only time I've taken an anti-depressant. I think it's pretty safe but I want to hear some shroomery opinions on whether this could cause serotonin syndrome.

I mean, even if I was on an SSRI while taking DXM, is the chance for serotonin syndrome low or likely? Today is the day after taking a single dose of an SSRI. The chances are even less. But if theres still a 20% chance or something I'll get SS, I don't want to risk it. I'll risk it if the risk is very low.

Today is possibly my last day before going to jail for a couple months. I want to do it, but I don't want to die. Opinions?

if i were you i'd stay away from dxm altogether... to quote bill hicks on this one "there's better drugs, and better drugs for you"

He was talking about alcohol and tobacco, which IMO are worse drugs and worse for you than dxm. :mad2:

Edit: Hicks would have definitely done dxm, btw.

i know he was talking about alcohol and tobacco, but i beg to differ... there is nothing consciousness-enhancing about dxm...

besides, the risks are way too great... even if you hadn't taken SSRI's yesterday there would still be an underlying risk... trust me...

"rule 2) if u fucked up and took dxm, don't mix it with other drugs"

I'm not mixing it with other drugs. I will be mixing it with weed though if I do it. I have residual amounts of an SSRI in my system. The way I understand half-lives is: The amount of time it takes for half of the drug to be expelled from the body. Thus 2 half-lifes of 40mg of cymbalta =10mg remaining  (A normal dose of cymbalta is 60mg. I didn't even take the full dose, I took about 2/3's of it). So in a way, it's mixing drugs, but it's a small dose of the SSRI still left in me.
