SSR-is greatly reduce the effects of psycadelics, what kind of anti-depresent are you on?

umm id be careful, ive heard that some anti-depressants, although its rare these days, have mao iohibitors, which unless you really really know what your doing, you dont want to mix with any other chemicals, it basically keeps your body from being able to break down foreign chemicals, so you get stuck in a really strong trip for really long time

It is generally a bad idea to combine psychedelic drugs with SSRIs. I wouldn't advise it, but I can't stop you.

IF this is the reason why sometimes i get uncomfortable for no reason during a trip and feel like im going to die it happens mostly everytime when i trip on moderate doses low doses im prefectly fine just like anybody else. The prescription medication i take is called wellbutetrin or something like that. If this is the reason why these things happen when i do mushrooms is there anyway to stop this from happening for instance if i stopped taking it (i take it daily) for a few days prior to tripping would this stuff still happen?

Well... Wellbutrin is an atypical antidepressant because it's unrelated to SSRIs or tricyclics. It's a selective catecholamine reputake inhibitor (it works on your dopamine system and on norepinephrine with only a minor affect on serotonin). Interestingly its chemical structure is similar to cathinone.

It's a VERY bad idea to suddenly stop taking antidepressants. It also probably won't make a difference for tripping since most antidepressants "build up" in your body over time. You have to take it daily for a reason--chemically, once you start taking it, your body expects to be getting it daily and if you stop suddenly bad things can happen, to put it simply.

"Feeling like your going to die" could be chemically related, sure, but it's also very likely that you're simply having a bad trip due to a bad set and/or setting. Are you in the right mindset? Are you in the right place? Consider.

I wouldn't blame that on the meds.  Sounds like you have a hard time letting go during a trip. 

Feeling like "death is upon you" or that "you're dying or close to death," is a symptom of that. 

Everyone gets that if they fight a trip, not just people on meds. 

Learn to let go entirely...completely, total surrender.  Doing this while tripping will make your trips less painful and who knows, if you carry that philosophy over to your sober life you might find you won't even need the meds anymore.  :heart:

First off,I'm going to sound like petty and wonder aloud ...does anyone. ever. really. WANT unwanted side effects?? as the original poster mentioned. Secondly, I've heard it said you must be ,literally, prepared to die if you are going to experience plateau 4 type trips. Thirdly, plateau 4 type trips are overrated and nearly impossible to integrate into THIS world. Four, I'm stoned and rambling. sca-rambalin'. Five, I've heard, or rather read on the 'info-sheet' you get with meds that you get psychotic if smoking weed with wellbutrin. I have recently received wellbutrin...any suggestions? Is psychosis all THAT bad??? I'm thinking yes.

Its probably not too good of an idea to have a mental disorder such as depression and eat mushrooms...psychadelics tend to potentiate those things.

<snicker> I take 450mg of Wellbutrin daily and haven't had any effects like that. I'm perfectly normal. NORMAL, I TELL YOU!!! <starts foaming at the mouth>

Seriously, that sounds like a crock.

Info sheet? Really? Where?

'Cos yeah, smoking weed on Wellbutrin is highly unlikely to send you psychotic....
