... as more reports arrive, it is becoming more and more apparent that Lithium is one of the medications that will block the action of hallucinogens. This is not surprising, since Lithium is classed as an anti-psychotic medication, and anti-psy meds have been used for decades to "bring people down" from the hallucinogens. In the sixties and seventies Thorazine was used the most frequently, but not exclusively. I suspect the main reason it was most commonly used was that it is cheap and always on hand in virtually any emergency room. For all I know they are using Lithium today for the same purpose.
If the lithium is keeping the beast at bay, THEN BY ALL MEANS stick with it until you think the Beast may be slacking off a little and you have the opportunity to wean yourself from it and try the mushrooms under ideal conditions. As we windsurfers say, "Never leave a windy place to find a windier place", or... "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".
I sure hope it eases up for you soon. Thanks again for the details. They are more data for the databank, for sure.
