Taking dxm a day after an SSRI????
    #15474271 - 12/06/11 01:31 PM (6 years, 6 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?

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.
