Taking shrooms while on anti depressants, bad?
    #2205096 - 12/28/03 03:22 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Ok, I currently take 100mg of zoloft a day and 500mg of depakote a day. Depakote is a drug used to treat sezuires and bi-polar disorder.. I have neither but i'm moody as hell and they give it to me to help that. So i'd like to know if anyone knows if tripping while i'm on these medications could be dangerous?

Thank you

starting small is a good plan tho you'll prolly end up needing more than normal in the end.......work your way up till you find the right dose

Its my personal opinion if yer having issues enough to be on antidepressants, its probably not the best time in your life to be using psychadelics.

Put the shrooms aside for a while.

Baraka you're missing the point here. The anti depressants help the problems and eliminate them, therefore i'm in the right frame of mind. The question was asking is there going to be any kind of crazy reaction between the shrooms and the medications i'm on. Chemical reactions that is. If anyone knows please respond.

i wouldnt worry just start small and really dude reconsider taking medicine for seizures and bipolar (both conditions my father has, (seizures very mild by the way, hardly ever and small, but bipolar medium) for moodiness. I understand bipolar causes moodiness however if you don't really have it try a natural rememdy (like high quality kava if you can stand the taste all day, im not going to mention suppliers but fijian kava is very high quality and i got mine from ebay (2lbs), it helps a LOT with MY severe moodiness, before that i was on .5mg alprazolam 2x a day witch worked ok for a while but quickly i developed a tolerance). just my 2 cents, but seriously small amounts of shrooms first just to see i dont think those bipolar meds are SSRIs so i dont think they will have much effect if any. Also that kava is good for taking with shrooms just to get rid of most of that "what have i done?" feeling when your coming up on shrooms.

Well it appears your going to do it anyways...

No, there is no big health risk, but if your on an SSRI it reduces the effects of it.

I still say if your getting better, get off the antidepressants as your doctor recommends and then partake in the shrooms.

Baraka, this dude knows his own brain chemistry better than anyone else, if he thinks he can handle it, let him have a go at it, its not quite as simple as not taking the meds anymore if you feel better. For me i gotta kinda play it by feel, weather i need to take my medicine or not.
I too take anti dipresants (celexa) as of right now i don't think i need them, but sometimes i'll drop into a bout of depresion and start taking them again.
I used to take zoloft also, and i find that while the ssri is still in my system it decreases the potency of psychedelics somewhat, but they are still worth taking.
some individuals don't notice any differance at all so i would recommend not taking any more than usuall.
