An Unfortunate Interaction
Mushrooms & Paxil
Citation: Aaron. "An Unfortunate Interaction: An Experience with Mushrooms & Paxil (exp54507)". Erowid.org. Feb 22, 2010. erowid.org/exp/54507
I consumed about 4 grams of psilocybe mushrooms and did not experience any effects whatsoever. My pupils did dilate, however, but I had no psychoactive trip of any kind. I'm thinking this may be because I take 20 mg of Paxil (Paroxetine HCL) daily for mild depression. My friends have told me that Paxil can counteract the effects of psilocybe. Paxil is not an MAOI.
