Hello!

I don't know in which section I should post this, so I post it here :)

I'm 28y male. For last few years I used many psychedelic drugs - LSD and tryptamines/phenylethylamines derivates. I didn't have any problems until the last tripping.
That was high dose LSD exeprience (8 tabs - approximately 1mg). Come up of this drug was as usual, same with the peak (except its power- it was the most intense experience).
Problem started when the peak came down. Instead euphoric state my mind turned to be my worst enemy. No, that wasn't what I can call badtrip - I had few of them and it was very different. So, the state was very dysphoric. Helplessness, sadness, anger. Very intensive mix of bad feelings. And there was suicidal thoughts. I didn't want to commit suicide but something in my mind suggested me it's the best thing I can do and I should do that. Very tramatic. I was aware it's drug effect and I didn't do anything stupid. I didn't have any drugs that could stop action of psychedelics, so I bought some beer and it helped.
Next two or three weeks I had very depressed state with the same suicidal thoughts that appeared while tripping. After some time those negative effects fell back.
But it wasn't over. I became very emphatic person, my personality changed in subtle way. I felt that but now I'm not able to point out what specifically.

Ok. It was 10 months ago. I think I came back to be the person I was initially. But sometimes I have flashbacks of this very negative state and there are the same thoughts which suggest me suicide. It's not often 5-6 times in a month and shows usually when i try to sleep and in the half-sleep state.

I went to a psychiatrist, to ask him about possibilities of developing of this disorder in future. He said it can be something like PTSD. He prescribed me alprazolam to use when I feel bad. He told me also that it's possible for me to recover but it needs some time.

I'm a bit scared that my experience could lead to more serious mental problems. Do you have any experiences with cases like mine?

Hi. i took a lot of drugs in the past. i'm also diagnosed with schizophrenia.

It is so hard to separate these things out? When things are looked into, there are so many ways of understanding things - so many different perspectives.

Drug use is a potentially dangerous area to experiment with, for lots of reasons.

My own working solution has been long term sobriety, maintaining a medication, & focusing on a healing path.

All of us are individuals & unique. Some people have these reactions to drugs & others don't.

i don't know what to specifically suggest? As despite a lot of progress, i still feel i'm working on certain of my own difficulties, that have been very hard to more fully resolve.

i wish you well with things.
