Shrooms + anti-anxiety drugs

Post by Kjm420 » Mon Mar 08, 2010 12:28 am

I was wondering if anyone had any experience in taking shrooms along with some form of an anti-anxiety drug. I know how it is possible to have a bad trip and how alot of the time people get really scared and upset, would taking something like a benzodiazapam which is like a valium or something completely remove that from the picture?

Right now ive got my hands on some zolpidem, which is basically the same thing as ambien. When i take one, besides getting extremely relaxed hence ambien being a sleeping pill, i am completely worry-free. and im sure alot of you guys know what im talking about. So do you guys think it would be a good idea to go shroomin along with some anti-anxiety? Just to make the trip 100% positive

Anti Anxiety pills just increase the flow of serotonin, you can still have anxiety attacks especially if youre prone to them, or have more anxiety than the average person.

I know that taking a valium during a bad trip is a good way to get out of it, but it also decreases your trip and changes it so you don't really get the mind fuck and extreme epiphany type experiences easily while on it. I would say just keep them in hand in case you DO start going in a bad trip, and just remember (which might make it easier on your anxiety anyways) that even if you do go in a bad trip, you have something that will set you strait and calm you down out of it.

Ambien is not a benziodiazepene and is not an anti anxiety drug, it is a hypnotic. Anti anxiety drugs work on GABA receptors in the brain while hypnotics typically target serotonin or 5-HT receptors. The effects can be similiar, but if taken in excess they are quite different. To answer your question, yes Ive taken booms while on benzos (klonopin, and ativan) and it has made the overall trip more enjoyable. There is less of the comedown phase where your mind starts thinking about anything and everything. I dont know how much ambien is going to help you, I take it to sleep and thats what it does, it makes me sleep. Anyway happy journeys.

alright i guess it just varies from person to person and pill to pill so il just have to test it out and see how i like it. no harm can be done i guess

yeah I've heard of people takin anti anxiety pills to mellow out a trip.

That (and all the good posts above) said, a bad trip isn't always completely negative; even good things can come of bad trips. Sometimes the best learnings are through such.

I'll welcome any experience even if its negative, because there is bound to be an insanely good catharsis from it. One might lose a lot of hair in the shower but fuck it.

yeah I've noticed that too, it's almost like you're in a more vulnerable and self aware state of mind then. I've learned things in bad trips and it made it seem to mean more emotionally to me to understand it I guess you would say. If I think of myself as doing something bad and I realize it during the trip, that it pretty much tells me that whatever it is brings me down so much that I need to change it to better myself. It's a great starting point to doing a kind of self help kickoff for yourself. It gives it a good foundation for whatever you try to better yourself with.
