    So I have been on Sertraline (Zoloft in US) and I have read that it may counter react the effects of acid andxtc...I am a huge acid head and I do trip however I dont have visuals anymore...I used to but now I dont, I think it is b/c of the amount of hallucinigens i have took...I have tried XTC before and it doesnt work on me...i know the pills were real. I've tried it about 3 different times, never felt anything...one time I had a total of 5 pink e pills...I snorted one, took three, and parachuted the other...everyone was rolling face except me....I believe this is due to my medication...anyone have any insights....????





    OH hyeah...there were times where i stopped taking my meds about 2-3 days before dropping acid, and i still tripped the same way i always do...i guess i just cant rolll

    im not completly sure but if you have too much serotonin slushing around your snapyses which is the primary action of most antideprssants and then you pop a pile of xtc which also increases the serotonin in your brain just drastically more than antidepressants, this could cause 'serotonin syndrome' which causes headache,nausea,dysphoria and other unpleasant side effects this could have been what ruined your xtc experience

    Don't know about acid but sertraline as any other ssri type medication will block MDMA effects very effectively. I don't know why this happens but here is good link:

    SSRI are often used after rolling to minimize MDMA neurotoxic effects.
