SSRIs and E

Is mixing E with SSRIs dangerous? I could see how hitting your seretonin levels from so many directions could be…….

im not aware of any formal research on the subject, but have seen ppl use them with no adverse reactions. then again, adverse reactions on e could be classified as anything. may ppl like to take them after a roll, to ‘post load’ and re-up their levels. taking them with e wont produce any more pleasureable effects.
MAOIs, on the other hand, can be dangerous to mix with E.

what about mixing the ssri s with 5HTP?

5HTP shouldnt be used with MAOI’s either, im not aware of any adverse reactions with SSRI’s and am not gonna research it solely for the sake of the thread.
i have seen reports that 5HTP is good to take with E, but havent done it, in fact i havent used e for almost 2 years.

Ive preloaded with 5htp & noticed a bit of a boost (on my 2nd day of rolling too, when my seratonin should have been way down), but not since I have been taking ssris

5HTP basically ups your seratonin levels, so the E (as well as coke and meth) will have a ball blowing your receptors. You’ll basically get higher than ever. 5HTP is mostly useful to reduce the post-high depression, and I only recommend using it AFTER a high.
An SSRI is a “Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitor” which basically turns you into a drone, right? (I’ve taken pretty much everything in the variety) I my experience, because of the droning effects of the SSRI (Prozac, Zoloft), the E basically did the same as with 5HTP – had a blast blowing all the extra seratonin I wasn’t used to getting. The depression afterward REALLY sucks, though.
Basically, taking drugs with an SSRI didn’t seem particularly dangerous, but I’d recommend against it. Don’t drink alcohol with them, cuz I got horribly sick on like 2 beers when I was on Zoloft.
I hope that helps.

I take Zoloft and Paxil. Basicly mixing any drug with another is dangerous.
