Meeting the Unity Paradigm
Venlafaxine & Peyote
Citation:   Peyote Coyote. "Meeting the Unity Paradigm: An Experience with Venlafaxine & Peyote (exp46059)". May 10, 2006.

75 mg oral Pharms - Venlafaxine (daily)
  6 buttons oral Peyote (dried)
  1 cup oral Peyote (tea)
I was taking Effexor, just started it the day before I went to the peyote meeting. I was not sure what to expect but I put my faith in the peyote medicine. Asking to allow the effexor medicine to aid in balancing my brain chemistry so that I may feel well again. I started out with just a couple of buttons, then an hour later I ate 4 more. At this point I was feeling the medicine just like usual. An hour passed and the medicine was working on me a bit stronger that usual, I was dreaming much deeper than usual. However I was able to stay in complete control. I did notice my eyes twitchin which is unusual.

The dreams and visions were unusual and very deep, I was seeing things that concerned the patient having the ceremony and then seeing my own issues that I need to clean up in my life. I felt like I wanted to jump up and fling my arms up in the air but this did not happen it was just a hint of maybe what I was feeling in the ceremony. the medicine worked on me for a couple of hours and finally calmed down and I was feeling normal near the morning. I forgot that I had taken the effexor and continued through the ceremony like usual the rest of the time. I left that day and went home, feeling like I usually do after meetings good for having sat up for someone elses health and well being.

I feel good that I could have helped in that sort of way. My songs during the night came out in a very good way, which I'm sure made people feel happy. That's all the matters is that everyone felt good. I didn't feel hungry at all the next day. I did pray with more medicine and tea the next day. Noticing there is no bad results of combining the effexor and peyote.
