Psilocybin Mushrooms And Gabapentin
I'm prescribed Gabapentin for nerve pain. Would any of these be dangerous for me to also take? Psilocybin mushrooms MDMA (150 mg) Klonopin (.25mg)
MDMA is never pure: & never safe for anybody. Hallucinogenic 'shrooms are good if you want to be admitted to a psychiatric hospital for a psychotic break, unless you kill yourself first by jumping off a roof because you think you can fly. Gabapentin increases the half-life, plasma concentration, sedative & CNS depressant effects of Clonazepam. Adding alcohol would be very dangerous see your psychiatrist ASAP. ...Read more
Are there actually documented pages about people developing schizophrenia right after taking psilocybin mushrooms?

1200 mg 3-4x/day: Gabapentin is a peculiar medication. The absorption is not linear with the dosage. With each increase, you absorb less of the increase. 600 mg 8x/day is more than 1200 mg 4x/day I your body! This effect plateaus around 1200 mg per dose. However, that said, dosage limits are often reached symptomatically; ie, lethargy, sedation, tremor, trouble walking. Balance/coordination problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
