“A review of the use of LSD for the patient near death”. 
Psychiat. Forum. 1972;3(1):21-23.
The use of LSD in the treatment of terminal patients in pain is discussed. Such use is a psychological as well as physical aid to such patients. The analgesic effects of LSD, based on four factors, are discussed. Several studies are described regarding the use of LSD on terminal patients suffering from malignant disease. Results of these studies indicate that LSD is capable not only of improving the lot of terminal patients by making them more responsive to. the environment and their families but also by enhancing their ability to appreciate the subtle and esthetic nuances of experience. The. imagery they experience not only gives esthetic satisfaction and feelings of peace but also creates a new will to live and.a zest for experience w.hich,against a background of dismal darkness and preoccupying fear, produces an exciting and promising outlook. 7 references.
