Maybe you should post over at r/microdosing and read through the wiki at https://www.reddit.com/r/microdosing/wiki/index

Also lots of comprehensive free info at: https://thethirdwave.co/microdosing/ (IMHO you don't need to sign up for any training unless you want to become a psychedelic therapist)

  • A video from the BBC which is a couple of years old (plenty of more videos on YouTube about microdosing): Microdosing: People who take LSD with breakfast (cutting tabs which is featured on the video is not recommended as it's not accurate; volumetric microdosing is a better method - see wiki/thirdwave links above for more info)
  • Ayelet Waldman who is featured on the BBC video talks about her depression and how microdosing helped her and saved her from suicide and wrote this book about it: A Really Good Day: How Microdosing Made a Mega Difference in My Mood, My Marriage, and My Life
  • If you are taking any meds may want to check for drug interactions which you can do so at https://reference.medscape.com/drug-interactionchecker by entering 'lsd' (also 'cannabis' or 'cannabidiol' but no 'psilocybin') and any other meds you are taking.
  • Also worthwhile checking James Fadiman's (also featured on the BBC video) website as that contains some meds (based on anecdotal reports) that you can combine with microdosing: https://sites.google.com/view/microdosingpsychedelics/drugs-and-supplements

    Probably need to take extra caution (or ask at r/microdosing) if there is any conflicting info between the medscape and Fadiman's website especially for those drugs that affect serotonin levels. The medscape site is probably more if you macrodose or take large doses of pharma meds.

    Other things I've read that could be linked to depression is magnesium deficiency (which does not show up on standard blood tests) and is becoming more prevalent due to modern intensive farming methods or due to taking PPIs (proton pump inhibitors) and any gut/microbiome issues as the majority of serotonin is produced in the gut (where kefir and fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kimchi seem to help).

    Why magnesium is so good for you: https://youtu.be/oZYXBYAHhN8 (and can also decrease vasoconstriction which can occur when taking psychedelics)

    Psychedelics are one tool in your toolbox along with things like meditation, breathwork, exercise, healthy diet, etc. for achieving a better quality of life.

    Good luck.

    EDIT: Autocorrect changed microdosing to macrodosing in book title. Fixed.

NTA - I take a micro dose of psilocybin for my bipolar, PTSD and various other things. I’ve spent my whole life on various awful prescribed chemical drugs that have never worked but given me terrible side effects.

It has changed my life. My husband and my parents all know and support me. My Mum said I’m a different person (for the better).

Try reading some more about it:

But yes be careful who you tell. I understand the need to talk to friends but this is a very unknown subject still and people are extremely judgemental. TV hasn’t helped by already glorifying it and there are huge misconceptions about LSD.

Also in my country (the UK) it is illegal so there are risks. I took part in a study. The medical establishments are researching and getting there but it’s too slow and I had run out of viable options for my mental health personally.

To anyone considering doing this please do your research and be very careful. I’m not encouraging anyone else to do this without careful consideration and assessing the risks. I researched this for months before I started it as I had never taken LSD before and was petrified.

Edit: changed stared to started for spelling doh!
