    I've only gotten to try mushrooms once, and the day after the
    experience I woke up with a horrible headache and vomited several
    times. My guess is it was either an allergic reaction, or there was
    mold on the mushrooms that I didn't notice. Has anyone else had this
    experience?

    how much did you take?

    its defenitely unnormal to vomit the day after a mushroom experience,
    it's even very rare that people vomit during the experience itself.

    I would have to say no i've never experienced any after-effects from mushrooms, maybe a little floaty the next day but thats about it. It sounds like you could just be sensitive to some of the alkaloids in the shrooms like bayocistine (sp.?). Are you sure they were the right mushrooms? Amanita mushrooms (like in alice and wonderland) can cause some unpleasant side effects.

    It was 7g of fresh Philosopher Stone(Psilocybe Tampanensis) mushrooms.



    I will be getting more mushrooms soon. If I have the same after effects
    then its pretty much a sure thing that it is an allergic reaction, if
    not then my theory about them having mold is the most likely cause.

    Some people have reported a headache the day after; they indicate that potentially, the longer the ride the higher the likelihood of a headache. However, other people report nothing of the sort. The headache part appears to be a factor of custom body chemistry. There doesn't seem to be any indication that vomitting the next day is typical by any means. There are so many factors it may be hard to pin down, but two rides from the same good stuff and having the same effect would indicate either a sensitivty to that type or something wrong with the batch.

    I don't know about other people, but I actually feel much BETTER the
    day after taking shrooms. Like someone has formatted my brain, sifted
    out all the [email protected] and given me a sense of wanting to make the most of my
    life.

    The mushroom hangover for me is like a cross between a drunken hangover and an E comedown.

    My head feels a little warped and I tend to fart and crap a lot but it's not the worst. I think a full-on drunken hangover is much worse.

    i also had a wee bit of a hangover after taking shrooms. my mind felt a little bit fragile. i had a bit of a headache but that wasnt all, i felt a little like my brain was repairing itself and that i couldnt think too hard about stuff.


    this being said the rest was all good, i was in a great mood for a couple of days afterwards! good stuff.
