I have become convinced that we have all come from a huge source of energy. Everything comes from energy and that's where we will go back to when we die.

Energy is God. I have used shrooms twice. The first time was probably the most incredible day of my life. It was so intense that I had no idea who I was..meaning...I didn't know what my role in society was anymore...(father? son? brother? uncle?) I couldn't remember my name or where I came was incredible. My second trip was in the weirdest situation. My college buddy invited me over to trip with his of whom who had never tripped before. It turned out to be a disaster. Every one got paranoid out of our minds. I would recommend tripping in a totally controlled situation...the best place would be while camping out in a very secluded and beautiful landscape. If you have never used shrooms before, I would highly recommend it at least one time in your life. It has changed my perspective on life.

Good structure, lots o' well thought-out points. Is it odd that I'm interested in criminal justice as a career and I also like your page? I think our drug policies are in need of a complete overhaul, but somehow I can't see me getting a job by allowing that belief to slip in an interview -- I don't even use drugs (and I mean *any*), save my ubiquitous caffeine and the occasional DCD, Cocteau Twins or classical, etc. CD -- hey, music counts for *my* mind's alteration. Anyway, great site. I support your efforts. At the very least I got to see that some other people are passionate about freedom.
Just curious if anyone in your organisation has ever checked The Isthmus Institute in Texas -- you might be surprised by the BoD list.

I have enjoyed your site. I love these plants. 2 of my brumgansias are very yellow. I planted in large clay pots in miracle professional potting soil. I have 4 in all all planted the same way, but my x-insigns orange and ecudor pink have yellow leaves. I have watered with miracid and also appied some iron, but they are still yellow. All plant receive the same amount of sun. Can you help?

I would like to thank you deeply. As someone who wants to know exactly what i might be doing to myself, your website has proved to be more than informative. And to all those people who have wrote in strictly condemning drug use, remember this: If you stare too long, life becomes a blur. So don't forget to always keep your eyes open and look around. For the man who keeps an open mind is never alone.

Music is soul food, for those on a spiritual quest i highly recommend the two most spiritual bands i know: "world-party" and "the water-boys", in particular check-out "good-bye jumbo" and "a pagan place".

Drugs are for the spiritually stunted, for the weak, for those that lack the imagination to percieve the worlds myriad beauty, its daily splendour, its unending variety. If you can not find sufficient beauty in a sun-set, if you can not marvel at the power of the storm, if you need to snort, smoke, inject or ingest to "see", then you are lost.

I came to this website to get information for a chemistry project. I love your purpose and I think it is great. My only problem, and I am sure you've heard it before, is the LD50 information. I strongly disagree with the use of this information, even if it was gotten elsewhere, because it supports this disgusting and unnecessary test.

The amount of a chemical it takes to kill half the rats is completely different form that to kill a rabbit, and therefore will have a different result on humans. So it is useless. And just imagine being unknowingly given acid to the point at which it kills you. That's not fun for a human, let alone a creature that doesn't have a clue what's going on.

praise: I love your website! A while ago, I had an idea to do something similar, even starting an organization to do it, and I hadn't gotten to it yet. I'm so happy to see that someone did!!! This is exactly what I wanted to do! PErhaps the time will come again when I am ready to take on something like this, and I will come here for inspiration and guidance. Thank you!

Pretty good article about the long term effects of marijuana use, but, it looks as though whoever was posting the web site might've been a little high himself (or herself); there is a portion in the middle where the exact same sentance is repeated. Kind of throws off all of the stoned readers, you should fix it :)

Dear Erowid, Just thought I'd let you know that I have placed a link to your site on an article of mine:

I'm new to the Internet, and yours is the first website I've visited devoted to Amanita Muscaria. My real name is Rob Mulholland, but for the last seven years (since about a month after my first mushroom trip), with the exception of my family, I have been called nothing but Captain Mush or Mush. I am a lifetime member of the Four Spacekateers. There is Spaceman Spliff, Major Mari(j), and Private Pluto. Why you needed to know all of that, I don't know. I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, I have a two year old daughter I am raising myself (her mother is psychotic), I smoke pot regularly, ingest Amanita every chance I get, my penis is seven and a half inches long, and I am addicted to my Sony Playstation. Thank you for existing.

I don't know if you have it allready, but I'm very fascinated by the shapes of/in nature, geometry, symmetry etc. All of wich one experience a lot more when in a psychedelic state. I've been experimenting some with programming fractal images and recursive and selfrepeating patterns, models etc and i find it really mystic, fascinating and psychologicaly intresting. So what i have been looking for (and am looking for) is some sort of papers/articles/research on geometry, shape, patterns etc in relation to the mind (or something). For example something about what it is that makes a totaly irregular surface or shape seem full of symmetry and order when on some drugs. Its exactly the same things with the mind, one start to find patterns, connection and order (in chaos) in ones thaughts.

Awesome! About almost everything (well a gret dela anyway) of wich I'm interested in is represented here=) That LSDtripreport (cleaning the room to bring order in mind, connections between everything) is just SOOO good! I recognice about every word in it! And it made me 'aha'ing and 'yess'ing all the time. It's interesting how alike the thaughts seem to go for so diffent and separated ppl! Or is it just me and my mind that "filters" everything to make sence or seem familiar to me?:P

Perhaps I have not gone through everything that you have available. However, with regards to GHB dosing, you go into detail regarding GHB in it's solid form but do not mention anything about liquid dosing. More specifically, it would be helpful if you reviewed all the major brands of GHB and provided a critique of them. For example, I am using Alcover GHB from Italy and I would find it helpful if there was review on the product.

** I am looking to obtain information from people that have been using Alcover brand GHB to find out if I am the only one getting headaches at low doses**

First of all, I find this site to be great in that there is really not that much information on GHB and I am really curious to know, what other peoples' experiences are with the product.

I have begun using GHB recently and despite reading articles indicating that GHB has no side-effects, (if used in prescribed doses) and is non-toxic; I am certainly experiencing some side-effects that I did not bargain for.

The good news is that it the Alcover GHB offers some relief from depression. I was previously using tranquilizers for anxiety, (Ativan) to which I developed some sort of addiction. When I began using GHB, my craving for Ativan stopped within a week and I have been off it for over a month now. By using GHB, I had no withdrawl effects. In fact, I was able to stop "cold turkey," with no withdrawl effects. The last time I attempted this, I was bouncing off the walls for a month.

I don't know how effective it is for treating alcholism but it worked for withdrawing from benzodiazipines.

The bad news is that I am sure that I am getting daily headaches from using this product even at low doses! I feel that I would have to increase my dosage to get rid of my depression but that would offset the benefits from using GHB.

I am unable to tolerate most new anti-depressants because they make me restless and I don't want to have to use tranquillizers along with anti-depressants because I believe that benzodiazipines make me depressed along with relaxed. I once tried Paxil and it too gave me headaches, so I don't know if headaches is the price to pay for no depression. Other than that all the SSRI's made me nauseous along with other side-effects.

Hence, I turned to GHB which is supposed to be non-toxic and side-effect free. Am I the only one getting headaches? I look forward to hearing what other peoples' experiences are with GHB - especially Alcover brand.

I've read a few articles on GHB and the effects it has on it's users. I tried it once and became violently ill. I have never had the desire to try it again. My husband is an alcoholic and has been struggling with the disease for many years. When he first heard of GHB, he became very interested in the results that other alcoholics had. He read as much as possible on the drug until finally deciding, (without my knowledge) to try it. He was positive that G was the answer to his problem. I believe that it does alleviate the overwhelming desire for alcohol. The physical side effects are also at a minimum. On the other hand,it did nothing to booster his self-esteem, or alleviate the psychological and emotional problems that burden the alcoholic. In fact, as in alcohol, he began denying the use of GHB. I have witnessed the same negative behaviour associated with the abuse of alcohol, with GHB. He has been indulging in G for the past year or so and I'm unsure of his dosage. If compared to his normal intake of alcohol, I can imagine that they are large doses. He has started many of his friends and co-workers on G, and most are satisfied with the results. Some, along with myself, have noticed a negative change in his personality and are concerned that GHB is just another drug that has fueled his addiction. I caution others to think twice if they believe that GHB is an answer to alcoholism. It does nothing to solve the REAL problem. As with! ! his struggle with alcohol, another begins with G.

information i have viewed re: canidates for use of med. herb has been so very confined to aids patients, cancer patients, and glauc. patietnts. my point: i feel that it is vital that the issues of patients with other chronic illnesses, disabilities,"syndromes", etc. also suffer from a great many chronic conditions and symptoms in which medical herb (marijuana),(note: not marinol, etc), can be and is extremely benificial in a great many aspects. but i'm sure that you are aware of this. i just don't see this point acknowledged even nearly as much as it should. there are a great number of us out here that feel that our situations are greatly overshadowed by the above mentioned "conditions". our physical conditions and symptoms are as very much important, and just as incredibly difficult to deal with as well as live with! it would be very nice for a great many of us to start getting the recognition and acknowledgement of our various conditions that truly warrent the necessary acce! ! ssability to acquire medical her b. the skinny of it all is that a great number of humanbeings are out here suffering immensely but... we don't have aids or cancer, or glaucoma, but it is quite important that others are informed and understand that there are a great many other conditions, as mentioned before, that medical herb can be and is incredibly effective in providing us with a better quality of life! unfortunately too many people focus primarily on aids and cancer patients as being the primary canidates for use of medical herb. come on "america",especially our "american government?" open your hearts first, open your minds next, all to gods reality, not the governments "reality?", and then lets really, really begin to help each other. these are just some aspects and information i would very much like to see included. thanks so much for your attention to this!

first, praise for you all and all others that are truly concerned and active in helping to get the message out of the extreme importance of the legalization for the use of medical herb to help those of us who are out here suffering immensely, let alone needlessly. i truly applaud you all! now a brief history of where i'm coming from. two years ago i sustained an injury at work. a job i had been at for ten years. to make a long story a little shorter, due to the injury sustained, i was totally unable to work. the injury eventually attributed to the development of fibromyagia and myofacial pain syndrome. my symptoms are very chronic, and unexplainably painful as well as too many to get into. i have been through a great many pain medications as well as sleeping meds. with the sleep meds i have no choice at this point to take them as my need of deep sleep is a very important factor in controlling my some of my symptoms so i stay on those, but as far as the pain meds...well i have g! ! one through several. all narcoti c medication. my last attempt at controlling the pain was morphine, which within two three months i was needing to increase doseage due to tolerance buildup. i am currently and have been for some time using herb to deal with my symptoms. well... it works!!! i can smoke some herb and it helps far greater and helps immensely with a greater number of my symptoms than taking a handfull of various drugs, some with quite detrimental side effects. gee, go figure! i can smoke one half to one "cigarette" and it helps me deal with a great many of my symptoms, from chronic pain, to chronic loss of appetite, to chronic nausea/vomiting, and more! excuse the constant use of the word chronic but in a great many cases that word is an understatement! so how exactly does that figure. choices. i can continue to take those handfulls of pharmacutical drugs to provide minimal help and relief (sounds like fun, huh?)or i can smoke one "cigarette" of a single, all natural, non-synthisized medicine, an! ! d that is exactly what it is, an d my symptoms are almost immediately greatly subsided, as well as more symptoms that the other drugs don't even effect in any way shape or form. quite frankly, i choose the latter and will continue to do so. oh, and by the way, about all those carcinogens that the "experts" speak of is nothing but a bunch of crap. literally! the surgeon general has for a great deal of time tested tobacco for its carcinogens and has determined that smokintg tobacco causes cancer. i have no doubt that the same test have been run and, obviously, are still being run on marijuana, after all, that is what they do!, and with what conclusions? if marijuana is so very bad and so packed full of carcinogens, then why don't they come out and tell all of us americans just how many people died from cancer/s caused from marijuana carcinogens in the last year, last five years, or even ten years. it's not happening, or at least not to even a fraction of deaths caused by the carcinogens of tobacco. then lets hi! ! t this point, marujuana, non-phy sically addictive, psychologically(it's an individual choice, with an emphasis on choice, effects,side effects: short term memory loss (but only while under the influence. proven fact!), drowsiness (i.e. use extreme caution while driving or or opperating heavy machinery. sound familiar?), increased appetite, state of well being, in some instances paranoia, decreased hostility, decrease in pain symptomology, extreme decrease of nausea/vomiting, etc... in other words marujuana is far,far less detrimental to the patient than a great deal of other drugs that these patients are already being prescibed by those who are there to help, i repeat, help us! but i must also add that the majority of the doctors i am currently seeing are in total favor of legalized medical herb for exactly the same above mentioned reasons and more! legalization is coming. no doubt about that. but unfortunately, we have voted in a government that is struggling so very desperately to deny the american citize! ! ns certain inaliable rights(unde r god)to as good a quality of life as possible, our own individual right to liberty ( i wonder if the american people even remember exatly what all this means )as well as justice for all americans. our government is taking all of this from the people it serves, i repeat serves, and is applying these inaliable rights to itself, alone! (god bless and forgive them for they know exactly what they are doing... and we truly don't.) at least most of americans anyways. we must remember that the government is in place to work for us, not make victims of us! well, a little long winded, but there is so much more! our government can no longer deny us the right to a better quality of life. but they are doing exactly taht by waging this medical marijuana war! it must and will end, but for now millions of americans must continue to live in suffering and misery when this could all be ended with the simple flick of a few pens. medical marijuana must be legalized. now! now! now! but it's not th! ! anks to the wonderful, magnifice nt, all powerful government that far too many americans voted in and now the cost is being paid. but at whose expense. certainly not at the expense of our so called "government". in other words "america, wake the @address_removed up and smell the grass!!!" get into action now and make our government start being held accountable for working for us and our constitutional rights rather than, more and more, allowing the american govt. to go deeper and deeper into victimizing us americans. believe me, some may not give a damn about legalizing medical marijuana but... i can guarentee you it won't be long before the american "government" jumps up and really bites you where it hurts, maybe even with you, literally! and when, i repeat when, it does, don't forget, that's the magnificent "government" you voted in to office. personally i have and continue to govern all aspects of my life by the laws of god. probably the only one man/woman, whatever you choose, that the american "government" really doesn't give a rats ass about, let alone adhere, truly adhere to tha laws of tha being that put us all here in the first place! i think that's more than enough comments from me. but (of course) i leave not only amer! ! ica with this thought but the en tire world; seek the truth, always, then live the truth, always, for the truth will truly set you free! and believe me, that aint no preaching. that's the truth! and again, i praise, and bless you all on the other end of this for all of your hard work and dedication towards this struggle. it is tremendously appreciated by more than i think you will ever know!

Many of the uses have been documented. I have found the anti-anxiety effect plus the ability to stop other drugs that have been used for sleep apnea with habit forming side effects have been eliminated thru the daily use of GHB. I sleep with a CPAP machine and have most recently used Ambien in combination with GHB with excellent improvement in ability to get a good night's sleep. I feel our FDA does everything in its power to make legitimate use of GHB beyond the scope of the average person by requiring importation from foreign countries at exorbitant prices. However, it is also made in the kitchen sink quite successfully by persons with a flare for chemistry. I have seen tons of benefits in friends of mine and no negative side effects. I have taken up to 20 grams a day with continued ability to avoid abuse of drugs and alcohol. Thank god for the presence of GHB and lets hope the FDA goes the way of the Kenneth Starr investigation which is now having to anwer to the american public a little more each day. Fight for your freedoms and support groups like EROWID who are striving to bring people of common interests together.

Criminal No. 3:94-CR-102-R.
CHARGED 3-24-94:

Count 2: The defendant, with the intent to defraud and mislead, caused 50 misbranded bottles of GHB to be introduced in interstate commerce.

I think this page is very good as it is very difficult to get information on GHB, a drug that is becoming very popular in the U.K. GHB in the UK is being misused and there is not enough information available to educate people on the dangers of misusing the drug. Thanks very much!
No, all very good.

I enjoyed browsing the pages, but didn't see anywhere to order the books. Is there a page I missed or do I have to Access Amazon or someone else?

I assume alcohol was a factor in the GHB article?

This is a cool web site. I'm writing after a brief glimpse at a few of the pages. This is FYI from personal experience. In the mid-70's, more than one person told me, "You can't get off on these mushrooms (stropharia cubensis) two days in a row." I thought, well I guess I'll find out for myself. What I found out was as long as you get a few hours sleep and eat at least one nourishing meal a day, I could get off for any number of consecutive days. My experience was about six weeks in row. I don't regard myself as an excessive/abusive, and I wasn't consciously trying to set any records. My thinking at the time was this, "I'll just keep doing them until I get symtoms such as stomach problems, headache, the ill-effects of a hangoever, etc."

The symtoms never reared their ugly heads so I keep eating and grinning and having a hell of good time. After three weeks I thought enough is enough, even though I felt fine. So I decided to take a few days off because I was feeling guilty about having too much fun. Sometime in the afternoon during that first day off, a good friend walked into my shop with a wide grin on his face and asked, with an extended hand full of shrooms, "Want to do some?" I thought for a moment about how he felt and about how I felt and said, Well, I can't remember exactly what I said, but I do remember that it didn't take much arm twisting for me to accept his offer. I did them for another three weeks until the weather dried-up enough in July to prohibit their growth. Until the very last day, I was still getting a buzz, but I must say, to no one's surprise, that it wasn't the same as it was in the beginning. Any stimulus, when repeated enough times, will cease to be a stimulus. I forget who said that, but it he or she was right.

In response to the dosage page, during my six weeks experience, the highest I got was on two little mushrooms, the size of a pinky finger, that hadn't opened up or didn't show their skirt. In contrast, after about four weeks, my friend and I were feeling enough confidence to push the envelope or sample the limit, so to speak. The next morning I ate 30 stropharia cubensis of various sizes. Enough that I felt the feeling one might get after sampling all there is to offer at a Thanksgiving dinner. In other words, I was stuffed. But to our disappointament, it turned out to be the lighest response to fungi ingestion during the entire period. The reason was obvious. We stayed up all night eating shrooms to stay awake.

jsut starting do develop my mind, though I am already 27.I suffered from alcoholism for 4 years and actually found THC helping me out of that. The struggle, though, was going on for years. By the time, I do control it. A year ago I stopped being depressed, what I've been for almost my whole life->family problems. I inherited smoking tobacco, too.Life's really hard for me sometimes, just for the experiences I had to take when I was too young to emancipate or do anything else against it. I am always wondering how people like me parents(considering themseves brave citizens) can think about people like you and me as sick, lost minded criminals who want to tempt others to "fall down" the same way we did. I say, you guys please do not care about negative criticism. It is so good for me to be able to get the Information you provide. I can find out here what ways of developing one's mind are known, and what I do have to consider before I start following one of them. This gives me the feeling of being in control of whats happening to me, which hasn't been in my life for about 26 years. The "good people" in the world bring you in danger and darkness, the "bad people" help you get by. Kooyanisquaatsi, "life in turmoil." Love to everyone, don't trust them who mess everything!!

EROWID rules! Huge site!!! I hope some of YOU international web surfers check out the following website: DATA - INTERNATIONAL USE OF INCARCERATION. You can see how the United States of Amerika's rate of incarceration is 5 to 16 TIMES HIGHER than ALL OTHER WESTERN (long democratic traditions) NATIONS. It's because of the Drug War which TRIPLED the U.S. rate from 1980 to today. This explosion began with the election of that FAR-RIGHT fascist Republican president Ronald [6] Wilson [6] Reagan [6] in 1980. See the website: Correctional populations in the United States, 1980-95. Most Americans are more clueless about these facts than are people outside the US.

Gotta give your site a big shout ! It's excellent, and extremely informative. I am impressed. But... I have to say Psylocybe Fanaticus really needs to be exposed for what it is. Anyone thinking of ordering the spore syringes from them, should know, that they keep your money, and don't send you anything ! My personal expierience is this. I mailed them a money order for my $10, and did everything I was supposed to do. Guess what, they cashed in my money order, but didn't send me SHIT !! So be aware. There is no way to contact them, and no way to send them e-mail. Just thought everyone should know.

Erowid Note: I've never heard of anyone having a problem with a PF order before. I recommended to Tory that he contact PF and let them know his order didn't arrive and gave him their address. Hopefully they'll remedy the situation.
...a grateful acknowledgement to your efforts with this sharing experiences like Myke's with the gift we know as Salvia, we can all benefit in growing on our journey through honesty and synergy...Peace...G

I would like to know to what degree long term usage of a substance as powerful as Ayahuasca can damage the brain. I have heard that heavy tripping can do considerable damage to the visual cortex. I would like to know to what degree this damage is done, and what ramifications could result from this damage.

I vastly enjoyed visiting your site !!!!!!! It has almost a limitless supply of info on various topics, an being an open minded ER Physician, I have a need as to what is really happening out there, along with the many detailed testomonials from a very wide spectrum individuals (from rec users, addicts, etc) Keep up with providing your fine and extensive site !!!!!! A concerned Physician
I'm an ER Physician and trying to find both the "clean" and "unclean" homemade ingredients for GHB. Can another med personnel or informed individual assist ? I have a need to acquire this info so that I may better treat those brought in to the ER from either trial or overdosage usage. With so many different drugs, herbs, mushrooms, etc...... out there in the real world, it becomes imperative to have this knowledge to know exactly what your dealing with when a patient in brought into the ER, in addition to proper follow up treatment and counseling !!!!!

Judging from your content, some of your readers might be interested in seeing my site, listed above. On it are links to Metaphysics Anonymous, Lord Buckley, and other sites of note.
I haven't seen the whole site, so I don't yet know what you might lack. I like what I see so far. It fills a need on the web.

thanx for your very accurate info on the drug GHB. i believe that it is very accurate because i have much experience with the drug. one thing that i do tend to disagree with is the practice of using GHB for treatment in alcoholism. i also would like people to know that GHB is very addicting. i first experimented with the drug in january of 1996. i loved it right away. i also at the time believe that i was a practicing alcoholic and was pleased to hear the news that this drug would help me with my alcholism. at the time it was a total misconception. GHB made me feel the best that i ever felt. i began taking the drug about 4 times a week and soon progressed. i loved the drug so much that i didnt want to stop. eventually i hated the drug so much but i couldnt stop. GHB soon stopped getting me high and only allowed me to not feel the horrible withdrawls that id experience if i wasnt on the drug. i needed to take one teaspoon every hour or, i would be in serious mental trouble. luckily i went to the doctor after having this major GHB dependency and he helped me get off the drug. so for people thinking about trying this drug go ahead. the facts really are on this page, but beware!!! if you are anything like me GHB will make you feel the best youve ever felt, and soon youll be taking it every hour of the day just to cope with the withdrawls. i dont think this drug will kill you, but if you take it enough, the dependence on it will drive you insane. but like i said, its up to you if you want to do it or not.thank god i havent had to have a cap of GHB for over a year now. i still crave the drug once in a while, but ive found a much better high, and that is life clean and sober. in a weird way im very glad that i was able to go through the terrible pain the GHB put me through, it made me hit a bottom very fast, and it did help me find the true way to treatment of alcoholism.

No words can describe how Happee!! I am to see such a neat, concise, no bull-puff-n-stuff, all around semi-compendium of info and pix of my favorite playthings. Shroom on.
I wanna see how to make all the neat nice white powders and crystal clear liquids that mother nature can't give birth to on her own. The day you add those recipes to the Vaults of Erowid is the day I go to Heaven(or hell if my ass get's rejected).

I've been visiting occassionally for almost a year now. You are a bright spot on the WWW, a guiding star so to speak. It seems though that some info that used to be part of your pages is no longer available? Any way, keep up the good work of gathering and spreading the good word. I am pleased to note the quote from 'Journey to Ixtlan' at the top of your page. I haven't really looked specifically through your site for sorcery references, so maybe you already have links to the various Carlos Casteneda addresses. But hey, I just wanted to say that I always get a boost when I visit EROWID. By the way what does 'EROWID' mean.

I see on your Ketamine FAQ a warning about the rave scene in Europe where Ketamine is often mixed with other drugs.

On around 8 November 1997 my son Christian snorted what he thought was Ketamine at a rave party in England. He believes that this was mixed with speed. He smoked marijuana at the same time and took some ecstasy. He claims to have snorted the Ketamine mixture around 15 times during the rave which lasted around 6 hours.

As a background I would also add that Christian has been a heavy (3-4 joints/day) marijuana user for 1-2 years. He has also taken LSD 3 times (bad trip on the last usage). Ecstasy and cocaine have been used quite frequently over the past year.

On 14 November Christian came home from university. I brought him back as I suspected there was a problem of some sort. Between 14 and 21 November Christian's behaviour was not normal. I thought that this was withdrawal symptoms from drugs. On 21 November Christian had what I now know to be a psychotic incident. He was taken in emergency to an hospital in Nice (South of France). The doctor said that he was not under the influence of drugs (i.e. hadn't just taken any). The next day he was transferred to a psychiatric hospital (usual destination for drug addicts). Here he was given Loxapac. The symptoms of the severe psychosis were reduced but far from disappeared when he was discharged after 2 weeks.

He then spent 2 weeks at home and (I believe) did not touch any drugs, except 1-2 joints of marijuana on one evening. His psychotic symptoms did not reduce. Upon the advice of a (new) psychiatrist he was urgently admitted to a clinic in Nice on 24 December. He now seems to be responding somewhat to the following treatment (in mg): Sulpiride (200-200-200), Haldol (20-0-50), Tegretol (400-400-400), Nozinan (0-0-50).

The doctor is undecided as to whether Christian has schizophrenia or whether his psychotic incident was the result of drug abuse (Ketamine abuse?).

My questions are as follows:

  1. Could the psychotic incident be the result of taking the Ketamine mixture during the rave party?
  2. Has anyone any knowledge of treatment for Ketamine related psychosis.
  3. Any suggestions or comments as to the present treatment being administered?
  4. Browsing the Web I found something on Ketamine at Any comments?

Lastly ..... Happy New Year!
