    Jatelka EDIT: This is a combined thread, the older posts are from before the "no self-incrimination" thing came into play

    I've heard that benzo's (xanax, valium mostly) can be used to bring
    down a person who is tripping too hard. What kind of dose is
    needed and how effective is it?

    if a person is freaking out you can give them Benzos to counteract the
    anxiety, but no this won't abort a trip unless you give them enough to
    knock them out (not a good idea.)

    Shulgin talks about using valium to stop (or largely diminish the
    effects of) a long-lasting trip from some kinky RC. My question
    is how much valium or xanax would used?

    4-6mg of xanax should get rid of all anxiety experienced while tripping and dimish alot of the effects though not all.



    To abort a trip u should look into atypycal antiipsychotics such as riperdol.

    oh yeh. it defintely would.

    i thought he meant abort it completely. To smooth one out 2mg xanax would be fine.

    During my worst trip ever I took 2mg of xanax andit completely stopped
    my trip. I was tripping hard off of some very potent mushroom tea
    and I was having the worst trip ever. My whole field of vision
    was taken over my hallucinations. I took 2 mg xanax and I stopped
    tripping within an hour. It was really wierd. I think xanax
    is a good way to calm you down during a trip but I think my experience
    was unusual. I think xanax would be good to terminate an acid
    trip too, or at leasy calm you down. I would try 2mg.

    damn 4-6mg of alprazolam (xanax) will knock someone out. That's 2 or 3 bars. I like them to mellow out the trip a bit, it won't abort it but will take the edge off. Even half a bar will help (1mg) I've seen people pass out w/ that dose also, but if you've taken xanies before, u know how much to take.

    yes i should have mentioned that your mileage may vary.

    It would be best to start out with .5 or 1mg of xanax and work your way up untill u feel comfortable.

    If someone is having a crisis, and they have taken no other
    depressants
    , then slightly higher doses (20-30mg diazepam,
    2-3mg alprazolam) should present no danger, even if they are benzo
    naive.

    Diazepam is a better choice for this application IMO, it's fairly fast-acting
    for most people, and lasts longer than alprazolam.

    I like the combo. Just be careful with the xanax dosage, and try not to drink alcohol.

    Xanax will definitely take the anxiety away from an acid trip, shrooms too. I would recommend a small dose if you just want to take off the edge, probably like .5mg. 2 mg is good when you are coming down.

    Hello, im an almost daily Valium user and I intend to trip during this week. Its common knowledge they use these kinds of drugs to put people on psychedelics down so if there's any valium running through my body theoretically it would dull my trip... Valium has a half life of 20-100 [36-200] hours which means a lot. This of course does not mean you spend 100 hours in a benzo state but rather the molecule although no longer "active" per se is still in your system. My question is, if I wanted to trip on LSD how much time should I wait between taking it and letting off the Valium? I think its enough for a day 8more than the time its effects lasts) but im not quite sure, i want to squeeze the most of my LSD. Does anyone here has any experience with Valium and LSD use? thanks in advance..

    If you are taking valium to counteract anxiety, I would not not stop taking it and then take LSD. Psychedelics can put you into anxiety states. If you take valium with psychedelics, the trip will more mellow (less worrying) but still visual.

    Sorry to drag an old thread up but it have another question on this combination.

    If I was on his first time tripping with LSD and had diazepam(valium) readily available would this be something to take should SWIM begin to have a bad trip to calm him down or would this end the trip or have no effect at all. Just any general thoughts that people could offer on the combination woudl be nice... :D thanks guys

    I was on valium for his first trip. Just made it more mellow and easy to handle. I had no fears or anxiety.

    Yes, it can definitely help keep you mellow enough if anxiety starts to get the best of you.. It will not end the trip, but it will seem to lessen the intensity a bit, and the visuals will still continue for the most part, although the vividness may be somewhat affected.. Of course, all of that is very subjective...

    LSD after alprazolam?

    Hello all you beautiful people, I have a question for ya'll!

    He FINALLY got a hold of 4 good blotters of LSD, and no doubt will he drop 'em all att the same time to arrive at wonderland. Enough with the dicksizing, heres the real question: I had 7 mgs of alprazolam this morning and 2 days earlier he had about 2 mgs of buprenorphine, so what he wants to know if these previous ingestions will stand in the way of the wonderful effects of LSD in some way? He has a feeling the alprazolam could be a problem here, but he's not totally sure.

    Any kind soul who would be kind enough to provide SWIM with an answer to his dilemma? Thank you.

    I know buprenorphine has a LONG half life of roughly 37 hours. 7 mgs of xanax is a lot, even with its short half life of 6 hours it will probably effect it in some way. Swim thinks it would lessen it. some one correct swim if he's wrong. The best in swim's opinion is to wait and assure swiy's self that all drugs are out of his system before ingesting blotter. From personal expierence, there is nothing worse than looking forward to an intense trip and because of perscribtion drugs nothing happens.
