Then I Started to Convulse
LSD & Lithium
Citation:   pufferfish. "Then I Started to Convulse: An Experience with LSD & Lithium (exp91145)". May 23, 2019.

90 mg oral Pharms - Lithium (daily)
  1 hit   LSD  
A few months before this experience I was placed on Lithium by my doctor for bi-polar disorder. I took 30mg (and still do) 3 times a day. The lithium really had a positive overall effect on my life, and presented no problem on other psychedelic drugs (shrooms and 2CI). It was my first time trying acid
It was my first time trying acid
and I was completely unaware of the fact that mixing the two is a stupid decision.

30 min or so after taking the acid I was feeling amazing, and seemed to be tripping a little harder than the others I was with, although I had reacted to other psychs quite strongly when I did them for the first time so no one was alarmed. Within an hour though, I was in a totally different world, with colours and shapes that became so intense I could only see the faintest outline of the room I was in. Pretty soon I was not responding to the people I was with whatsoever.

The next part I don't remember, and have had to have it explained to me by my friends. I started acting strange to the point where the sober ones there were worried, and then started to convulse and stop breathing. My face turned bright blue before my friend got me to start breathing again (I'm not sure whether the breathing had to do with the seizure or just me being out of it). They called an ambulance, and I just kept tripping, totally unaware of the situation.

The paramedics came but couldn't keep me in one place so police cars showed up to help (must have been a slow night lol). They strapped me down and put me in the ambulance. Luckily I was so high that it not only didn't lead to a bad trip, I had an amazing time.

At the hospital I started coming down, and got more in touch with physical reality, although I couldn't stop yelling things that didn't make any sense. The doctors and nurses were all calling me 'the trip', which I didn't mind. I went home when I was finally sober and am pretty sure I want to try acid again..... once I'm off lithium. It was a good time for me, but seizures are no joke and I guess I was lucky it all turned out fine.
