Many people turn to psilocybin as a natural way to decrease their dependence on certain pharmaceutical medications — most commonly antidepressants, opiates, and antipsychotics. This section briefly discusses potential interactions between psilocybin and antidepressants along with a few other substances.
Please recognize that each person is unique. Just because two individuals take the same medication, it does not necessarily mean that they will benefit from the same course of treatment. Your medical history, intentions for taking medication, and how long you have been taking medication are factors to consider. If you are currently taking any pharmaceutical medication, we suggest exercising caution, doing extensive research, and consulting with competent professionals, before experimenting with psilocybin.
**From Mayo Clinic website: Serotonin syndrome is a serious drug reaction. It is caused by medications that build up high levels of serotonin in the body. Symptoms that can range from mild (shivering and diarrhea) to severe (muscle rigidity, fever and seizures). Severe serotonin syndrome can cause death if not treated. Milder forms of serotonin syndrome may go away within a day or two of stopping the medications that cause symptoms and, sometimes, after taking drugs that block serotonin.
Many pharmaceutical medications are like band-aids — they can cover up and numb symptoms in the short term but fail to address the root causes of your suffering. Psilocybin, on the other hand, helps you become aware of and face uncomfortable truths you may have been ignoring or avoiding for years. For some, the process of overcoming dependence on one or more pharmaceutical medications may be a difficult, painful, and emotional ordeal lasting several months oreven years. If you are tapering off of these medications, it’s important to let go of any expectations you might have of experiencing only pleasant psilocybin journeys.
