A friend is interested in trying DMT after I recently introduced her boyfriend to it. There is a history of schizophrenia in her family while she herself has been diagnosed as being on the autistic spectrum. She is also currently diagnosed with depression and an anxiety disorder. Do you think DMT might be particularly hazardous for her and, if reasonably safe, are there any special precautions that should be taken?
Yes, in this case, the use of DMT or other psychedelics is formally contraindicated. Use of these substances is not recommended and /or familiar history of schizophrenia. Risk of triggering an episode of mental disease is much higher than general population
