Title: Shroom tea help please
Post by dan182skater on Jan 8th, 2005, 2:58am
Hello, I haven't posted here in a while but really need some advice now. I am getting CHs every single day several times a day. I bought some shrooms and was about to take it when I was told that it is not good to take it with Prozac, so I didn't take it. I have now ran out of imitrex injections and do not know what to do...the only thing I have now is oxygen, which doesn't always work. I heard something a while back about shroom tea. Can I drink some of this while I am on my meds? I am weaining off my meds but it will still take a while. I am currently on:

AM
20 mg Prozac
50 mg Lamictal
PM
100 mg Lamictal
30 mg Abilify

Please someone respond to this ASAP. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

-Daniel

I may not be the right person to reply regarding "alternative treatment" but I will tell you this....

Having more than dabbled with hallucinogens in my youth for recreation, I will tell you this.....

No way I would do it while taking an antidepressent, antipsychotic or any mood stabilizer.

You don't want to mess with that, not because it might effect your "treatment" but how it might then effect your brain.

Just my opinion.

Good luck

I don't  know if this will help, but in my younger yrs I dabbled a few times with shroom tea the last time I did in the middle of my so called good time on shrooms I got a ch. Nothing sucked more than that it's bad enough dealing with a attack but it was way worse then I was peroniod from the shrooms and scared to take meds for the ch(didn't know if they would react to one another)needless to say that was the last I tried that. Hope this helps

I don't know a thing about shroms except that in order for them to work you have to detox from all other drugs first. I know there will be someone who can help you more along soon but I sense that you need to know sooner rather than later!
Try having a look at www.clusterbusters.org
hope it helps

I urge you to check out clusterbusters.org.  DO NOT try this on your own without a little bit of knowledge.  Mixing shrooms and other psychoactive drugs could hurt you!

There is much general info on the clusterbusters site that might help.  You could also try email or PM to pinkfloyd.

Good Luck!

Kris

I've just looked at this guys profile and he is only 17. Now I don't know what the legal complications may be from this but I think our advice ought to reflect his age.

I'm not sure if you're on all these only for cluster treatments or additional conditions, but.....
I wouldn't detox off them without discussing this with your doctor. I also wouldn't try the shrooms while on these meds. Please don't make any changes in your medication regimen without consulting your doctor.

Call him (her?) and tell him you're out of imitrex and things are getting worse. He may suggest DHE or another abortive that will help get you through this tough time.

Thank you everyone for your replies. The Lamictal is supposed to be for my headaches. I was also on other stuff which I was able to have my doctoir weine me off of, such as Topomax. The Prozac I was on 60 mg and now down to 20 (I have been weining off all my meds with my doctors consent) and will soon be off it. The Abilify is for my mild case of Tourettes. Thank you everyone for replying so quickliy, i will not take shrooms until I am off all my meds.
