Psychedelics & Psychotropics: Mechanisms of Drug Interaction
October 24 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The fifth and last installment in this series will focus exclusively on the potential for drug interactions between psychedelics discussed in installments I–IV and other medications or supplements people may be using. While the aim is to cover a broad range of possible interactions, a focus will be placed on interactions with traditional psychotropics including antidepressants, benzodiazepines, stimulants, and antipsychotics. It is recommended to attend installments I–IV to allow for optimal understanding of materials covered in this installment.
This is the fifth and final part of a 5-part workshop series geared toward providing a foundation for understanding the psychopharmacology and clinical research of the most commonly encountered psychedelic compounds as well as practical information for safe psychedelic use.
