Drug Interactions + Tripping with first timer
    #3008238 - 08/16/04 07:40 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Alright, so I've done shrooms 3 times before, with very good trips. But now I'm on Lithium for Bi-Polar Disorder and Zoloft for social anxiety. Me and my girlfriend have planned to trip tomorrow and I was wondering if I should be worried about any interactions with Lithium and/or Zoloft. We're both very laid back, positive people with no conflicts, so I'm not worried about being in a bad environment or anything. She, too, is on anti-depressants for OCD.
Also, would it work if I bought some sugar pills just incase she starts panicking or freaking out? Would it work as a placebo if I told her it would relax the bad parts of a trip? Any tips on this would be great. Thanks a ton!

Oh God... Lithium! I would not suggest that. I was on Lithium for years. It enhances the effects of psychedelics dramatically. Even when I smoked pot, I would hallucinate to the point of thinking that goblins were after me. If you really insist on taking the shrooms, I'd suggest that you don't take as big of a dose as before. Wait and see how you feel. If you're okay after awhile, then take the rest.

Anti-depressants, on the other hand, decrease the effects.

I smoke, but Lithium hasn't changed it's effects. But yeah I'm gonna eat like 1/4 eigth and see how it goes, then another 1/4, etc. I'm confidant I can handle a bad trip if it were to happen, I was just wondering if there were any really bad effects of taking Lithium as well.

If you have mental problems severe enough to require medication, please don't take hallucinogens.

It's not a severe case of Bi-Polar Disorder. I've had it when I took shrooms before, I just wasn't medicated. But today is the day, and I feel like a million bucks, and I'm gonna take it slow, eatting a few at a time and seeing how I feel. I have a good feeling about today, I'll tell you all how it goes.

Everything went well. My girlfriend ate about a gram and I ate about 3. She was very giggly and extremely happy, saying she felt like a kid again. I was very happy for her. At first I ate a gram, nothing happened. I ate another gram, again, nothing, then I ate another gram and I got a slight body high from it. I wasn't feeling much for a while untill I later smoked a bowl. This is where it got awesome. Time had distorted, kind of like in the movie "Spun" when they take hits, and everything fast-forwards. I didn't get many visuals on this trip, but I was seeing some cool stuff in the sky. I think the Lithium and/or Zoloft actually lowered the effects, I'm not sure. The trip felt way different than the others. Not in a bad way, or a good way. It was a great trip, but it was different. I'll have to try other shrooms to see if it is still the same. Anyway, thanks for the help guys. :smile:
