    Not sure if I am posting this in the proper place but whatever, My Monkey seriously need some suggestions like anything that could help mellow an acid trip, it was her first time and she had a bad trip, so yeah ANY suggestions would be helpful, I've heard that marijuana on the come down is good but I also heard that it intensifies the trip. I am not sure if she is still coming down or still on her trip, this is a very mental alert trip, not sure if anyone knows what she is talking about. So yeah ANY suggestions would be great!

    Benzos or light opiates can help, but it's generally a bad idea to administer even more drugs if You doesn't know what he's doing. Still a bit of Kratom tea and the like at the tail end of a trip can mellow out the post-trip burned-out feelings and help You relax. Cannabis is a bad idea since it will only send him off again, and melatonin for sleep-aid purposes can also restart the trip.

    The only sure solution is time. Just tell You to relax, occupy himself with whatever can distract or amuse him, and give it time to go away.

    If You had a less than stellar trip, he should give himself a few weeks to re-integrate and think the experience over. He should be hesitant to jump onto whatever he thought during the experience as gospel truth because it is, after all, only the drug. Let him think over whatever made him uncomfortable from a sober perspective, and reason out the lessons learned. A lot of uncomfortable experiences can be beneficial in the long run.

    Drugs like valium (diazepam) or xanax or even kratom will take the anxiety out of a trip but also put you in a dull state of mind and should only be used as a last resort. If shit really hits the fan then you can take anti-psychotic medicines that act on your serotonin receptors like risperdal or seroquel that will actually take you completely out of a trip and end it.

    SWIM loved LSD, but SWIM often had problems coming down. I found marijuana to be helpful, and I am not a marijuana fan. I think that anything that helps calm a person can help, including things as simple as drinking a lot of water, juice or tea.

    I recommend not drinking too much alcohol or doing too much coke while tripping, because I believe it is difficult enough to come down off those alone, much less combined with LSD.

    Clonodine and b12 will all but end an LSD trip - at any strength. (I has personally seen a 1 mg dose go to nothing). I find sirmooney's suggestion odd, for swim (who is a regular user of MJ) MJ seems to "kick it back in" for a short period. different strokes for different folks I guess.

    SWIM's problems weren't with tripping, and I wouldn't have minded kicking it back in. SWIM's problems were with anxiety/stress/sadness caused by adrenaline crashing, so anything that would numb SWIM out was sought. Even MJ, which SWIM rarely smoked and didn't care for otherwise.

    SWIM assumed most people's problems coming down were due adrenaline/cortisol responses being completely out of whack after 8-12 hours of frying and flying.

    Yeah, SWIM can sympathize with this. What I like to do is just chill out and have a few beers (Not too much!!!) as the acid wears off. Dont drink too much though as feeling unsteady while being on acid is not fun. You will probably notice that he/she wont really feel a normal alcohol effect, but what I will notice is a sort of more relaxed mellow feeling. Make sure the music keeps playing aswell.. Nothing worse that sitting with friends on acid with no music, its a source of high anxiety... Due to acid having such empathatic effects it's a good idea to try and make some jokes or just muck around jokingly to lighten up your friends too, that way your friends and yourself will feel happy and relaxed. Tripping really is an art and once you get through the first stages every beginner tripper goes through You will start to enjoy trying to hit the nail on the head as far as having the best trip goes. Good luck! :)

    SwiY should just try to ride out the rest if possible.

    If it is sleep that swiY is concerned about, she should be alright taking an OTC sleeping pill to fall asleep that night. SwiM's bra has heard that fruits and anything w/ vitamin C can help to brine swiY back to earth but really it's a 'buy the ticket, take the ride' kind of thing :)

    I think some people need to learn to enjoy the acid scattered feeling. SWIM tells me that when he comes off acid he enjoys sitting back and contemplating things or looking at things that previously gave him visuals provided he avoids feeling awkward around his friends, which is possible now that I have tripped a few times and knows what its like for all parties involved.

    Warning: Drinking alcohol (a decent amount of rum) while under lsd's effects has resulted in a very bad trip for swim's friend. I was on lsd too and his friend totally freaked out (broke his nose, tried to kill swim, was jibbering nonsense) for about 12 hours. The end result of this is the cops being called at 8 am by mes neighbors because of all the ruckus. They broke down swims door because they thought swim's friend was dying (I didn't hear them knocking). Searched swims house, took swim and friend to the hospital. I was fine but friend had to be administered benzos because he fought the cops. Friend had taken lsd before with no such issues. I am still paying for the legal consequences of his friend's bad trip to this day.

    In conclusion, benzos or clonodine are a good way bring down an lsd trip. Alcohol is not. GHB might be good too, but I has never tried that combo and is not sure.

    Being very hydrated (like drinking 8-12oz of water every 45mins-1hour) during the whole trip and doing stretching (or better yet some meditation) throughout will keep ones body and mind limber. if one is very concerned, 75-100mg of diphenhydramine might do the trick for OTC, just make sure that nothing is planned the next day cause it will eat your soul.

    most of the times when swim cannot sleep it is because he lets himself feel restless, sometimes, sitting in the dark focusing on not moving leads to falling asleep without knowing it.

    Re: Advice on dealing with the body load of LSD?

    When I do LSD, he does not take it lightly. I like to trip extremely hard with lots of visuals. This is why SWIM usually takes anywhere between 4 to 10 hits at a time. This makes the comedown almost unbearable for SWIM. He feels awkward everywhere he goes and just wants to sit down and smoke cigarettes. I feel like people don't understand him when he comes down and he feels like he cannot connect to others. The way I get past this is either smoking enough weed to make him pass out or popping xanax to kill any lingering trip. Xanax will kill your trip at just about any time and will definitely put you to sleep. The other way to kill a trip is to take Vitamin B12 but he has no idea where to get it from.

    Good luck to all future trippers but always remember, if you don't respect LSD, it can ruin you.

    Re: Advice on dealing with the body load of LSD?

    Thank you very much for that info. B12 is most likely much healthier then popping 4 footballs when coming down from a long day of LSD. Just being able to sleep is nice though.

    Re: Advice on dealing with the body load of LSD?

    I'm a little confused about the b12 though, vitamin B, no matter the number is the energy vitamin. Swim's tried b12 as a potential recreational thing, and it did increase his energy, and can't see how this could kill an LSD trip. to my knowlage, b12's primary function is to promote healthy cell growth, and energy.

    I have to agree with a previous post about learning to enjoy the scattered LSD feeling You gets when coming down.

    Sleeping it out is the best thing in SWIM's opinion.
    When SWIM wakes up from a trip SWIM actually finds he feels good and everything is a bit shiney and new in a odd but good way.

    Infact SWIM usually finds he is happy and feeling good after a night of tripping but maybe that's just him and he's been lucky.

    Also, I agree with eating fruit and drinking fruit juice.
    Vitamin C, such as orange juice will gradually bring You down from a trip if You wants a healthier, cheaper and easier way to come down.

    Hope this helps!
