Ive been tripping for a while, and am starting to wonder about side effect. Don Juan said that these drugs have untold health side effects. I have no idea what actual side effects occure but would really like to know. I was talking with a friend and he said that his friend became extremely paranoid after tripping and hasnt returned to normal. I have noticed that I studder a lot for a few days or even up to a week after tripping. Just trying to get some info.

TO PREVENT PHYSICAL SIDE EFFECTS: Moderate your sessions, and be sure your get plenty of rest afterwards. And make sure you are eating healthy and balanced foods.
Refrain from combining multiple psychoactives too often, and do be careful and accurate when you do combine psychoactives.
TO PREVENT MENTAL SIDE EFFECTS: Refrain from tripping in "scary" settings. Follow the psychonauts cliche...Set and Setting. When having high dose sessions, HAVE A SITTER WITH YOU (a sitter is someone that simply watches you as you are having your session). And again, moderate and space out your sessions.
And, if there is anyway possible, search for a local Shaman in your area. I know you may not be in the jungles of the Amazon, but if your in the USA or Europe there may be some noteworthy local Shamans that can help you. The internet also has vasts amount of information that can help with questions.
The only side effects that I know of from "tripping" are enlightenment and uncommon wisdom...
A mushroom trip can get very intense and overwhelming at time. Exposing your brain to this condition regularly could have a few adverse effects. I had some irrational paranoia for a bit after a very very heavy mushroom trip. I would think my friends are out to get me and what not. I thought i was going insane but i was able to talk myself out of it. I am 100% again after stopping for a few months now, just smoken weed.
I couldnt tell you if shrooms just brought out this paranoia or caused it or was totally unrelated, but i suspect it didnt help.
Just moderate your doses, dont trip to often and its all about setting. Physically shrooms are no problem.
