Extreme Anxiety After Mushrooms
    #11487325 - 11/19/09 07:37 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Hey all,

so i did mushrooms about 2 weeks ago and my trip wasnt the greatest. i wouldnt call it a really bad trip because i didnt see or hear anything scary, if anything i just felt physically ill, nauseous to be exact.

but i noticed that afterwards, i have extreme anxiety. like i cant even go into many public places because i feel a panic attack coming on. i left work early today because i got soo anxious my throat was closing up and i had shortness of breath, i felt a panic attack coming on.

i ended up going to see a doctor and he said this could last a couple months! is there anything i can do to make this go away or maybe a better way to deal with it? i feel like im literally losing my mind.

thanks in advance.

I've had the opposite effect, personally. But that's not to say that this can't happen. It will probably wear off after a while, but if you want it gone sooner you can try some SSRIs.

well right now im on apo-lorazepam which is part of the benzodiazephine family and it helped a little but its making me feel reeeeally drowsy.

like i honestly dont know how im gonna hold it together for the next couple months, especially work, i need to go and make money for rent but im having such a hard time going in public places.

i really hope i didnt mess myself up permanently.

A benzodiazepine will not do the same thing as an SSRI. Especially not lorazepam. Again, if you want relief sooner, try an SSRI. Also, long term benzodiazepine use can cause the kind of anxiety you're describing. Although if you've just been prescribed it for this recent condition, then it's fine for now. Just a warning for the future :smile:

i wouldn't try an SSRI unless that's your last choice. An SSRI might make you feel like shit for another month before it starts to make you feel better so I wouldn't just jump onto that thinking its the easy way out. I too had extreme anxiety after a mushroom trip that consisted of a 2 and a half hour panic attack. It will get better and you didn't mess yourself up permanently just try to work your way up to doing something that will take your mind off having another panic attack. Try to get some exercise and sleep and just remember that it will get better.

thanks for the replies:)

See the thing is the anxiety got worse over the last 2 weeks and it gets so bad that i feel like i have no control over it, i cant even calm myself down anymore. im starting to avoid social gatherings and public functions because the tiniest thing can set off my anxiety.

and now im physically ill as well, im tired all the time, i have no appetite, anything that i eat goes right through me, im dizzy, exhausted and i get random sharp pains around my body. i dont know if im actually coming down with something over if the anxiety is causing this. also i had a urniary tract infection last month and now i have one again. this is all just so weird to me cuz im the type of person that normally never gets sick. i dont know whats going on
