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...

Cocaine and SSRIs

Posted on Sep 8, 2016 in Doctor X files, Drug interactions

  I have a question about SSRIs and cocaine. I have been on 100mg of Sertraline (Lustral) since April. I am over the problem that caused me to start this course of medication but plan to stay on it until winter has passed then wean myself off slowly. I know MDMA has little effect whilst on SSRIs so have picked up some high quality cocaine instead. Are there any issues I should be aware of when mixing these two (psychological risks aside)?   Pharmacological interactions are unlikely at that level. No organic complications have been reported by combination of SSRIs and cocaine....
