I'm prescribed Gabapentin for nerve pain. Would any of these be dangerous for me to also take?
MDMA (150 mg)
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
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.

Neither: Psilocybin is a naturally occurring serotonin agonist meaning it activates serotonin receptors. Unlike prescription SSRIs, which keep serotonin active once it's released, psilocybin directly activates receptors for 3-6 hours before being metabolized. It is not an antidepressant. Illicit use of psilocybin has significant risks including panic or psychotic episodes. It's also illegal. ...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
Could be: Commercial mushrooms come from safe sources. If you are into foraging for them, either you must be an expert or do this with an expert. Some like morels are easy to identify but others can be difficult and mushroom poisoning is something you would rather not acquire. ...Read more
