Welcome to the community!

I'd advise using the search engine, as i know this has been covered before. Searching for both lexapro and SSRI (they group of drugs it belongs to) is advisable.

You probably won't be getting any benefit from the esccitalopram for another week or two i'm afraid! You don't want to messing around with stopping and starting it, as it can potentiate side effects and reduce effectiveness. It need to build up in your system over time.

Unfortunatly your search will return a bit of bad news though :frown:

drop the meds. if you can avoid mixing medication, especially if you are uncertain of what it will do, then dont mix it

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.

This is correct. I would strongly advise against suddenly stopping the medication. It is very important to take SSRIs when one is supposed to, and not to miss a dose. Substituting an SSRI for a psychedelic drug is never a good idea. Take your medication as you're supposed to. It's not really a good idea to take drugs while on antidepressants, mostly because of one's mental state (it will usually only magnify one's problems), but there are also some physical reasons.

Generally SSRIs will reduce the intensity of the trip and change some of its characteristics a little.

You could always throw it in the freezer and let it chill until you are done with the meds. I know where u're coming from though, I"ve been trying to get mushrooms for more than 4 months with no luck and am really itching to shroom. I think it would be more responsible to do what you should do first, then have the fun.

I'm not a doctor...

But, from what I've read, the most common effect of SSRIs on shroom trips is to dampen the effect of the shrooms.  That said, both drugs operate on the serotonin system, so the absolute best thing would be to make sure the shrooms are good and dry so you can save them for  a better time.

The worst thing would be to stop the lexapro.  It's never a good idea to stop and start that type of medication.

Best of luck.  :mushroom2:
