Hello everyone! I am posting today to ask about the effects and dosage of mushrooms while using SSRIs. I just recently started taking SSRIs last May. I started with Zoloft at 25 then went to 50. This wasn't having any effect on my anxiety/depression/anxiety attacks so I recently switched to Buspar 5 twice a day and Wellbutrin 150. I have been taking these for about 4 weeks now. I am soon going to up my dose of buspar and Wellbutrin in the next week or two. While I was on Zoloft 50 I tried shrooms for the first time. They were wild picked Psilocybe Cubensis and fresh. I did quite a large dose, about 3-4 times what someone would normally do. I did this through making a mushroom green tea. I was able to obtain a sense of euphoria and intense love but I wasn't able to have a deep mystical experience or trip like my friends did when we ate the mushies together. They all walked away from that night learning something and had a different outlook of life. They weren't taking SSRIs. Towards the end of the experience the euphoria faded into a blank void where I didn't feel anything and couldn't really think about anything either. This eventually went away after the mushie high faded. I am making this post to ask what I should do in order to get the most out of my next mushroom experience. I have been doing a lot of research on the benefits of psilocybin for treating depression and anxiety, and I would like to see if a mystical experience with mushies will do the same for myself. I am wondering if I should stop my SSRIs to do shrooms again? Do I need to dwindle down my doasage of SSRIs? Will I be ok if I didn't stop taking the SSRIs and ate the shrooms? What do I need to do to get the best possible experience from Magic Mushrooms given my situation? I am also interested in hearing any experience with these SSRIs and mushrooms.
