Exploring new (for me) medication

Posted by Jay2112 on October 14, 2021, at 20:02:27

I was wondering, does anyone know what the microdoses of mushroom's (psilocybin) effects are like? As in, what does it feel like..'euphoric'? I know the microdoses don't have much psychedelic effect, but have an 'uplifiting' effect..apparently. I am in Canada, and they are, somewhat, widely available..but not yet legal. A few companies sell microdoses in gummie worms. Experiences...please??

Oh, and under a special access program, my pdoc can import nefazadone (generic Serzone)for me into Canada. This medication works AMAZING more many with autistic individuals (and my pdoc thinks I sit on the mildly-autistic scale)..and the med did work AMAZING for me...combined usually with an SRI. (Until Health Canada stupidly pulled it from the shelves, over a possible liver effect that can easily be detected by regular blood tests.)

Right now, it seems Vyvanse (amphetemine, extended release), cannabis 10mg THC, and Lyrica (an intense pro-GABBA drug) are my go-to meds.

Looking for experiences...and your guys awesome insight!

Thanks,
Jay

may or may not be helpful, unlikely to be a problem.

Hi Jay,

I'm in Ontario. If you find a source, let me know.

But seriously, I was wanting to look into mushrooms as well for depression. Apparently, the antidepressant effects can last several weeks or months. The reason I'd like to try is based on my success with marijuanna which has led to more improvement than many traditional medications have provided.

Hi Linkadge:

I am in the Golden Horseshoe area, and my nephew just got a batch of fresh whole shrooms from B.C. He just simply Googled it, and found many suppliers online. (An interesting sidenote, I just saw a news clip yesterday whereby the City of Toronto sent a formal request to the Fed government to decriminalize possession of *every* drug available. The thinking is not only harm reduction, but could save 100's of millions in policing and court costs. Probably won't happen at the moment..but, it's a start!)

If you are looking for specific micro-dosed mushrooms, and for gummies that you can break up into divided doses (I saw this actual advertisement on Facebook!!..not in the 'for sale' ad's, but in an embedded, formal ad!! lol)...they are becoming very, very popular here.

I am not sure how the communication by email works on here..do you (or does anyone) know? There is a local pot shop down here that sells the prepackaged goodies. I can get them delivered 7 days a week. Let's chat by email.

My first year of university was 1970. There were a few wet years around 74. They grow here. It's warm enough. Know them well. These drugs resist being used like other drugs, if I can put it like that.

I just found out that babblemail sends to your email address(??) Perhaps this is why I don't receive any (I registered for dr-bob over 20 years ago with an email address I no longer have). Does anyone know if there is a way to change the email address that babbblemail sends to?

Yes, I did it. I don't remember how exactly.

I'd like to test if it still works; can you send me one (content doesn't matter)?

I recommend reading Ayelet Waldman's A Really Good Day: How Microdosing Made a Mega Difference in My Mood, My Marriage, and My Life.

Another book I recommend is Blue Dreams by Lauren Slater. Slater visits a therapist who uses psilocybin to treat depression. After hearing about the cocktail of drugs Slater is taking for her depression, the therapist declines to treat her, saying that Slater's drugs would block the effects of psilocybin. I don't know if this would also apply to microdosing psilocybin.

In mice, the psychedelic effects of psilocybin and antidepressant effects are actually separate. They have developed analogues of psilocybin which have antidepressant effects but not the psychedelic effects.

In theory, blocking 5-ht2a/c receptors would block some of the psychedelic effects, but (if recent studies are true) they may not block the antidepressant effects.

It looks like psychedelic mushrooms aren't the only kind that are good for depression.

MUSHROOMS MAY HELP LOWER THE RISK OF DEPRESSION: HERE'S WHY

A new study has linked eating mushrooms to reduced risk of depression.
Study authors believe an antioxidant called ergothioneine may be responsible for this effect.
Mushrooms are the best dietary source of ergothioneine.
Mushrooms also contain several other health-promoting nutrients, including various B vitamins, vitamin D, and zinc.

Not only are mushrooms a nutritious food to eat, they may also be beneficial to your mental health, according to a group of Penn State College of Medicine researchers.

In a new study, the Penn State team reported that people who consume mushrooms have a lower risk of developing depression.

Djibril Ba, lead researcher and a recent graduate from the epidemiology doctoral program at Penn State College of Medicine, said this may be due to the fact that mushrooms contain minerals such as potassium and the amino acid ergothioneine, which can lower the risk of anxiety and depression.

"Ergothioneine, a powerful antioxidant present in high levels in mushrooms, can only be obtained through dietary sources," Ba told Healthline.

He said mushrooms are the largest dietary source of ergothioneine.

"Having high levels of ergothioneine in the body may help to prevent oxidative stress, which is known to play a significant role in the development of various neuropsychiatric disorders, including depression," Ba noted.

Compared with participation with the lowest mushroom consumption, those who had moderate to high intakes had a lower risk of having depression.

However, eating more mushrooms was not necessarily better. The people with higher consumption fared about the same as those with a moderate level of consumption.
