I was wondering if mescaline acted on the serotonin system like lsd and mushrooms and was thus affected by the use of an maoi. if it is, does it follow the same guidelines as mushrooms or is it completely different?
-------------------- I often come to many challenges and intimidations, but then I remember that you only live life once, one single time through, with no reruns or rehearsals. So just live the way you want and the best you can. Its easy.
Quote: HeavyToilet said: I'd imagine the effects of mescaline would also be intensified, and slightly changed, to the same effect as with mushrooms.
Not exactly. Mescaline is a phenethylamine, psilocybin is a tryptamine. Also, san pedro and peruvian torch contain tyramine which is definately something that you don't want to take with an MAOI. There are trip reports out there in which this combanation was used but I would take extreme care before trying it myself.
