Mushrooms and antidepressants
    #4003894 - 04/02/05 06:38 AM (12 years, 2 hours ago)

A friend of mine has been on antidepressants for a while but she wants to try a mushroom trip. I've looked everywhere but there doesn't seem to be a lot of information out there on mixing the two. From what I can tell the antidepressants will increase the effects of psilocybin, so a lower dose should be taken. I'm not sure exactly what prescription she's on, I'll ask her that tomorrow and post here again. The only prescription I've heard bad things about when it comes to mixing with psilocybin is Fevarin.

Anyone have any more information on this? Doesn't seem to be a lot out there, thanks to the ban on hallucinogen research  :mad:

You're mistaken. And I'm sure with a simple search here there would have yielded many results with the answer to your question. Nevertheless, SSRI's and MAOI's will usually DECREASE the effects substantially. Therefore you will need to take MORE shrooms to feel the effects you would normally feel at a lower dose. Some people aren't affected by the antidepressants, but this is what happens most frequently with the combination of antidepressants and mushrooms and can be expected. Sampling with a normal dose might be the best idea if you want to be totally safe about it to see just how much it will affect you.

People on antidepressants should be more careful with shrooms though. Why is this person on an antidepressant in the first place? Mental illnesses and shrooms don't mix...

Well I did use the search feature, but after wading through about a dozen threads I still couldn't find much.

I guess there's a bit of misinformation about this out there, one of the sites I came across had this to say: "- If antidepressants like Prozac are being used, you'll need less mushrooms, so be careful. People using Fevarin should avoid every kind of drug."

As far as I know she's not on antidepressants for any kind of serious mental illness. Like I said I'll talk to her again tomorrow and try to find out the details.

Thanks for the info.

Alright no prob if you couldn't find the info in a search, I just know it's out there in some threads cus i've said it myself before. Anyway, yeah find out what she's on exactly and then well, we'll see from there. But basically this is all the info you'll need.

P.S. Muse is good :smile:
