Dear Erowid Readers: We're a small nonprofit that runs the top drug information website in the world. We have only 4 staff but serve 12 million users, and have costs like any big website: servers, power, office space, programs, and staff. To protect our independence, we don't run ads or take government funds. If everyone reading this gave $3, our fundraising would be done today. If Erowid is useful to you, take a minute to keep it online and ad-free another year!

Abstract
In 24 persons LSD 25 blocked glycogen decomposition at the first phase of hexose-l-phosphate preventing any further cleavage down to the end products pyruvic acid and lactic acid. If the accumulation of hexose-l-phosphate in the blood is responsible for psychic symptoms, i.v. application of glucose (which is broken down directly via hexose-6-phosphate), should abolish the toxic symptoms. This seems to be the case but the number of experiments was too small to provide conclusive evidence.
