Anti-Depressants and Anxiety Medications and Microdosing Psychedelics

Current research indicates that most anti-depressants and anti-anxiety (SSRI) medications blunt the effects of psychedelics.

Several of my clients have tapered from their anti-depressants and anxiety medications and now practice a regimen of micro-dosing psychedelics.

It takes TIME and INTIMATE self-discovery to face your depression and anxiety. Ideally you would work with another person to help you stay connected, engaged, and supported.

Please be aware that considering psychedelics for self discovery is a GIANT step toward unwrapping, facing, and integrating your emotions, beliefs, and learned responses.

Big steps are best taken with witness and advocacy. Transparency in itself is healing.

If you’re on ‘medications’ you are working with a medical professional. PLEASE inform your medical professional of your intentions to work with psychedelics.

Agreements create a container. A consensual container. Taking prescribed medications is an agreement. The privilege to serve Psychedelic Integration Therapy begins with agreements. I hold them as a sacred container for us to explore, express, evolve.

Words are spells.

DO NOT discontinue or change your medication without medical advocacy. (yes that’s a double negative)

This is an excellent Harvard EDU article on considerations to safely discontinue your SSRI medications. (click HERE)
