How to deal with restlessness after tripping??
    #2099841 - 11/13/03 02:45 AM (13 years, 27 days ago)

Hey, everyone :smile:

I'm tripping tomorrow on shrooms, and I would like to confront a very annoying problem I experience after tripping. 

After the trip wears off, and I am tired as hell, I can't get to sleep for ANYTHING!!  Its as though my mind is exhausted, but my body is still hyped up!

I'm going to try some sleeping pills to help, but is there anything else I can do to just go to sleep after tripping on shrooms? 

thanks :smile:

I have the same problem.

Never used to. When I was young, I could pretty easily fall asleep while tripping. But now that I'm older and a complete insomniac, if I try to sleep after a night trip, I'll just toss and turn while my body, and especially my legs twitch and jerk and spasm like a white guy on a dance floor.

My solution? I don't bother to get in bed and try to sleep anymore. I just stay awake until I pass out from complete and utter exhaustion. My GF usually finds me on the couch with no blanket, shivering.

My other solution is to just trip around 9 in the morning. That solves the bed problem but creates whole new interesting scenarios of it's own as my GF comes home from work to find me all fucked up and gets pissed at me for some reason......

Holy cow, I thought I was the only one that happened too! My legs go crazy, as though they just *can't* stay still! Its so weird...and so horribly aggravating! The restlessness is almost painful. I ended up crying last time because I wanted SO BADLY to just to go sleep after my trip.

Well, I hope you find a solution for your sleeplessness too! I can't get Xanax, but I will try some over the counter sleeping pills and see if they help any.

I wonder why my body behaves like that after a trip?

I normally have so many things to wade through after a trip that I kind of embrace the lack of sleep :smile:

Benzos help with that but I never have that problem with shrooms. Acid is a different story. Its called being "tired and wired". If you think shrooms is bad, wait till you get an acid hangover...now thats a killer.

Muscle relaxer, anti-anxiety, or pain killer. And for some, I advise this one if it works, pot. Just get some really slow stoney tired pot...

I would strongly suggest against taking sleeping pills while you are tripping. The last time I took sleeping pills while tripping, the pills set of something inside my brain and I was insane/bonkers/ apeshit for about 3 hours. Sucked hardcore.

Makin love while trippin is quite an experience. I could just see flowers and fairies when I closed my eyes and its almost like vines just entangled our bodies closer while we were intertwined in the ritual of lovemaking. I suggest only doing this with a parter...like somebody you take a shower with and pee in front of rather than a fling you are trying to impress. I dont go for flings but I can tell this can become very uncomfortable for the girl (in my case) when you mix psychadleics and romance. They don't go hand and hand and can only be reserved for those cases when you are "deeply involved" in a relationship. Anyways, I dont want to get into detail about my experiences but you know those juices in the brain produced from love are mixing with a trippin mind and theres something chemical goin on there...this deserves another thread. Sorry for gettin of topic

Sleeping pills usually take some of the restlessness away for me, but not all of it. I still find it hard to settle down. Xanax will do the trick an settle you right down. I also found that having a beer or a glass of wine will help you settle down too.

Phase 1... collect underpants... phase 2...??? ... Phase 3 - PROFIT!

Is Xanax available by prescription only?  The wine idea sounds like a good one too because alcohol always makes me sleepy.  I'm actually tripping tomorrow since yesterdays plans fell through. 

Thanks for the advice! :smile:

P.S.:  How many milligrams should my Xanax have in a single tablet and how many should I take to calm the restlessness?

I dont know about the pot one....Mariguana always intensifies my trip if anything. If this is evident with you as well, I dont think this would be the best decision. I'd try benszos before herb.
