Psychedelics cross tolerance

Posted on Nov 4, 2017 in Doctor X files, Pharmacological tolerance

  I’m on the medication for depression and anxiety, which certain psychedelic drugs seem to help a little bit. I’m not on antipsychotics for anything like bipolar disorder or schizophrenia so, correct me if I’m wrong, but I feel like it is safe for me to use psychedelics.I have one more question. On the part about counteracting the effects of the medication by increasing psychedelic dosage, is this safe to do with DMT? Also, is there any cross tolerance between 2C-X, NBOMe series, and DMT?     Increasing the dosage of DMT could increase the risk of bad...

Amphetamine induced depression

Posted on Ene 12, 2017 in Doctor X files, Mental health

  I´ve wanted to know if somebody has a depression on the base of drugs like speed nearly 2 till 3 gramm a day, after a few years u can lose this drug- induced depression or it´s changed the hole personalitiy as u think you ´re the same as before?     Long-time, high-dose of stimulants as speed can lead to psychological problems, both during use and also during next weeks/months of abstinence. Depression or other mental health problems are usually the consequence of a group of factors. It is unlikely that a depression lasts for years, only caused by long-time use of...

Aripiprazol and MDMA interactions

Posted on Dic 30, 2016 in Doctor X files, Drugs and diseases

  Are you aware of any negetive reactions between MDMA and aripiprazole, (Abilify)? Not sure if I suffer from bipolar disorder or depression or even ptsd, but I haven’t found any neg. effects yet.     There are no reported toxic effects or increment of adverse reactions of mixing MDMA and aripiprazole. But the most important aspects are not pharmacological, but the influence of mind-altering , stimulant or psychedelic-like substances (cocaine, MDMA or cannabis) in a person suffering a mental health problem. I suposse this because aripiprazole is a drug used in these...

Antidepressants and LSD interactions

Posted on Nov 29, 2016 in Doctor X files, Mental health

  I take 150mg Wellbutrin XR and 50mg Tresleen (Sertralin) every morning as treatment for depression. My question: How many days ahead of an LSD trip do I have to stop taking these meds in order to experience decent effects?     Effects of SSRIs are not immediate, it should be necessary 10-14 days to be completely clean. Anyway, I do not recommend stop taking your pills to use LSD if you are using them as a consequence of a mental health problem (anxiety, depression…) . I think it should be better to wait to until the problem resolves, as LSD can trigger mental health...

Drugs in bipolar disorder

Posted on Nov 4, 2016 in Doctor X files, Drugs and diseases

  I am just wondering if there are any drugs that you would advise against using for someone with possible Bipolar Disorder? Or, maybe even drugs that might help alleviate some of the symptoms – if only temporarily. I have not been properly diagnosed (waiting periods and referrals, so I haven’t seen the new psychiatrist yet) but I have treatment-resistent depression (~5 years) and lately I feel strongly that it really is bipolar. I don’t want to do anything to possibly make this situation worse but I am not sure if I can make it through this waiting period easily, and...
