Psilocybin Side Effects
Are there actually documented pages about people developing schizophrenia right after taking psilocybin mushrooms?
Yes, but rare: Psylocibin and lsd can trigger acute psychotic-like episodes but fortunately cases of ongoing schizophrenia afterwards are quite rare. Most authorities believe that those who have schizophrenia triggered by hallucinogens were predisposed to it and likely would have developed it anyway, but no one knows for sure.See http://www.Psychforums.Com/schizotypal-personality/topic26065.Html and my comment:. ...Read more
Yes, though small: "Movement" may be too strong a word but a growing number of researchers, practitioners & patients believe psylocybin, LSD, MDMA & other psychedelics should be legalized for prescription use given the large body of research on the powerful therapeutic benefits achievable by proper use of these medicines.

MDMA (150 mg)

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
Can psilocybin or lysergic acid diethylamide induce serotonin syndrome when combined with sertraline?
Russian Roulette.: There have been no actual studies done on this for obvious reasons. I can say a couple of things that may be useful though. Given your medical history, it would be very ill advised to use either LSD or Psilocybin containing substances. Both are known to precipitate severe anxiety in those even without a history of panic disorder. They are illegal, and street drugs are often spiked with other drugs. ...Read more
