Citalopram and bud
    #363215 - 02/12/10 05:04 PM (6 years, 9 months ago)

Hey all,
Has anyone ever been on Citalopram (an antidepressant) and gotten high?

I don't know if there's a link between them, but I swear ever since I started taking this medication, every time I get stoned I feel the effects SOOOO much more.

I've had happy/giggly fits, which I never ever used to get, and I really appreciate my surroundings, and can feel the planet beneath my feet if I'm outside.

Or maybe its just been good bud around lately? lol

It probably ups your serotonin levels and then when you get high you get really really high

Well, its wicked :smile:
I feel like I have a bond with bud now, know how to appreaciate it, and appreciate life.

Although on the flip side I've had some new, slightly unsettling anxieties, like my mind being really foggy, when it shouldn't be THAAAT foggy lol.

That's actually exactly what is happening...be careful stoned2life. It isn't healthy for you to be smokin and takin those specific meds.  Smoking along with a serotonin inhibitor can mess with your head a bit and It is possible that your depression may worsen due to the abnormal serotonin levels.

Do yourself a favor and ditch the pills!

And welcome to the growery!!!

I would ditch the pills too, anti depressants are no good


Like I saw someone on the shroomery say the other day

White man medicine make you feel good now and feel bad later, Indian medicine make you feel bad now and good later

And herb just makes you feel good now and feel good later :feelsgoodman:

Ditch the pills eh?

I don't want to... Things are starting to feel really good in life.
Besides, I couldn't just stop, I'd get withdrawal symptoms (apparently).

I might ask my doctor about the whole weed + meds thing..

What do you guys think, could it really mess up my head?

The pills by themself are enough to mess up your head

"Besides, I couldn't just stop, I'd get withdrawal symptoms"

what do you think its going to be like after you have been taking them for years

Yeah I considered not starting them at all, I was worried that I might not be me anymore or something, but I am still me - as far as I know!

Also the idea is I take citalopram for a couple of months, and then slowly lower the dose until I can come off them, I don't think a few more months could do much damage.

My family actually suffers from depression quite a bit, perhaps its genetic if that's possible?

Meh, some argue that, but I personally feel that depression has a stronger link to someones personal disposition in life.  So I would say it is situational.  I sincerely urge you get off the meds and search for some natural coping mechanisms.  You will thank yourself in a few years.

Bio-chemical depression is real, there really is no debate over that anymore.  That said a majority of people who are "depressed" are not bio-chemically depressed, and are not going to benefit from medication.  Rather one of the theories, which I agree with, explains that much of depression has to do with the lack of distortion of reality.  Me and you and all those who are not depressed distort information on a daily basis to protect our self and our schema.  Depressed people however don't do this.  They worry about when shit is going to hit the fan, if they're going to be diagnosed with cancer or just plain see how silly our day to day living really is.

you know what i did in english class? I came to class stoned out of my mind every day, i chugged vodka in the back of class, i put dead fish in the ceiling tiles. i put a gallon of old milk and orange juice in the file cabinet before winter vacation. i brought snakes in a tied up sweater and let them loose during class. i didnt go to school to learn, i went because i had to. i didnt care, and i didn't fucking listen to that stupid bitch. and i still don't fucking care. i tore the pages out of her books and burned them, and threw away all the books in the class, two books per day.  :twobooks:

Woah THEBats I think you nailed it on the head...
I really do actually worry about things like getting cancer or dying young, like, every day...
I'd be happy if I reached 50, that's a fair amount of time on this planet.
I've taken up properly smoking cigarettes lately, almost as if I want it to happen.

And yeah things like, worrying if I'm going to be a failure in life (providing I actually live) lol...

Oh well, sorry to rant on about my own shit.

Well chances are you're not bio-chemically depressed.  I would recommend taking up a hobby that's constructive, something you can see improvement in each day.  Then work from there.  It's not easy, trust me but life becomes a whole lot manageable when you feel you've accomplished something.
