Jesus that was a lot of shrooms you took. Around 4 x the recommended dose. I would not advise increasing that at all. Did you grow them yourself? If not then I agree they may have been 'weak', but it was still a big risk - I'm glad they weren't full strength.
Things will settle down a bit over the next couple of days. That much I can guarantee. What we don't know is whether you came down with the heatshield pointing the right way ;) This will become apparent shortly.
A couple more questions:
1) Are you chronic?
2) If not chronic then what point in your episode were you at (beginning/peak/end)?
Getting hit during EVA typically means you are either chronic or at peak cycle. The best time for EVA is at the beginning of the episode - that way you don't have to stay out so long.
If you choose to dose again, then I really do not suggest increasing the dose, mainly because I am concerned about the magnitude of the last one. In fact I'd only repeat the last dose with the same launcher! If you get a new launcher then please scale back down to sub orbital work as opposed to moon shot... the next launcher might not turn out to be a dud. I fear you may panic if you suddenly find yourself propelled out of earth orbit. Dark Side of The Moon is best visited on HiFi not for real!
Alternatively you might try shuttle mission like Henk.
Whatever you are not permitted to depart for at least 5 days after the last mission, so lets hope the next mission is cancelled before then :)
