I became disabled and had all the loss, grieving and depression that goes with it. They started giving me 50 mg and it kicked in a day. I actually said 'So this is what normal people think like!' and 'I should have been on this my entire life just to fit in.' lol
I liked it, but it wasn't enough, So they upped my dose to 100 mg. I felt we still weren't quite there and did some experiments myself. 1st day 200 mg, 2nd day 300 mg 3rd 400, etc till I got to 600 mg. My shrink almost fell out of his chair saying it could have given me ....and I interrupted 'serotonin syndrome?' He responded 'You know!' I told him I felt 500 mg would be good and he said he wouldn't go past 300 mg. AND 'Most doctors would be afraid to write this prescription. I told him I didn't have an issue with death, you know we all gotta die some day.
After a while at 300 mg for a few months I started to miss pills and still felt OK so I stopped taking them for a week or two. Just to see where it goes I've taken 1000 mg and 60 mg of Valium. I found in my brains chemical make up this doesn't seem like much.
Life's an adventure! I find for me it's somewhat like doing coke. It makes my brain go from my normal high IQ to way beyond in my thinking. I think of it a s a tool to super size my consciousness.
