Default Why dont drugs affect me much?

Ive noticed over the past year or so that drugs have hardly any effect on me. Ive been on about every SSRI, hydroxizine, buspar, and klonopin. Its not just these anxiety pills but most things. Herbal supplements just dont work. I took 6 450mg tablets of valerian root, i feel nothing. 3mg of klonopin only makee
feel off balance and tired, but there is no obvious effects. I know people are healed with .5 mg of that ****.

My mom takes 2 benadryl and sometimes a muscle relaxant and shes high as a kite. I took 3 muscle relaxants when i pinched the nerve that rums down the back of your leg, and i get nothin. I should try to take 30 g of valerian root and a whole bottle of bemadryl, maybe even a gram if klonopin. Then mayne something would happen.

But why does this happen to me? Is it because i dont think the medicine will work? Is it possible im having some reverse placebo effect where if i dont believe medicine will work it wont? WTF is wrong with me.

Some people just have an extremely high tolerance to medication. My dad is the same way. He has to take like 3x the dosage just to feel a little bit of the effects.

Damn ill probably be the same way. My mom hides all the drugs and has confinscaded my klonopin, and she wont give me more than the reccomended doses of anything. It drives me crazy. She gives me up to 2 mg of kpin. An the effects dont make sense. Ya i get tired and stuff, but i have the urge to hug people and become more creative. **** doesnt make sense.

You know hydrooxizine is an antihistimine, buspar is a NDRI, and Klonopin is a benzo right?

Ya it is. I know, i guess hydroxizine has anxiety helping effects too. I dont even know what an NDRI is haha. But there really arent many good options as far as anxiety and depression drugs.

it's because you're young and healthy (i'm assuming) and you're taking weak drugs. take an 8th of shrooms and then come back and tell us how drugs don't affect you much.

I was prescribed Ativan for anxiety at one point & when I got it they were sure to warn me that it can be stronger than I think but when I took it I never felt anything at all, even at a double dose. I suspect some people just have a body chemistry that influences it, for example diet & physical condition maybe be factors

haha give me some shrooms. Ive never done illegal drugs, but im fascinated on the effects of hallucinagens on the mind. I really wana try them, and they are less dangerous than alcohal. It doesnt make sense that nicotine and alcohal are legal and weed, LSD, and ecstasy arent. People actually die from the 2 legal things.


Ya and as for xanax. Im pretty sure klonopin is like 10x more powerful haha. theyre both benzos. Im gonna take 3 klonopin tonight since its the night before school.

Don't take psychedelics lightly. Just because they can't kill you doesn't mean they can't severely alter your mental state, especially when you take it your first time and you can't equate what you are feeling. You don't want to be some crazy kid running down the street barefoot questioning if you really exist.

it sometimes has to do with size/weight etc...and also some people can handle a lot of medication without being affected.

psychedelics don't necessarily cause mental illness only increase genetic mental disorders already present. I've taken MMs and it was absolutely amazing. I had an epiphany and It changed my whole outlook on life and see things differently. It also made me massively more confident in social situations. Best thing I have ever done, hands down...MMs also aren't toxic at all and have no harming physical effects. The only thing you have to watch out for is a bad trip which is relatively uncommon and any bad mental effects from it are temporary.

All right it's story time! That statement about the crazy kid running down the street in bare feet questioning why he exists, it's a true story and there's even more.

So it was after a concert, some chick gave my friend and I goo balls when all the sudden, this kid jumps out the bushes. This kid is totally tripping balls, like the first time he did acid. He's keeps questioning things, like do I really exist........NO this isn't real, NO yes it is, no we don't exist. He starts going up to people saying you all don't exist and this kid looks like he's about to run in the street. I decided to tell the kid to chill out and lie down like everyone else on the ground. He looked relaxed for a second, then he punches me right in the face. I was pretty messed up myself so I got up and shook it off, let the kid run amok. He tries to run across the street, but this police officer threatens to lock him up in the mental hospital if he doesn't calm down. Everyone was basically telling him to chill out. Next thing he does, he go up to a couple, at first, tries to fondle the chick's breasts. Then he goes up to the dude and tries to unzip his pants. The dude was about to beat his ***, so I intervened once again because there were cops and told the dude, look man, he's tripping, he's ****ed up, just let him be. The dude chills out by the crowd by then turned on the kid and told him to run in the woods. That's what he basically did.

I'm sure the kid is fine but at the time, he was wack. Psychedelics can do that but the moral of the story:

1. When you are new, don't trip alone

2. Be in a safe environment.

3. Stay away from the public unless you are at some festival where everyone else is tripping.

It's isn't about someone turning crazy. It's just if you have a bad trip, especially your first time, it's not going to be remembered as a positive experience.

thats the problem. i dont have anyone i could do it with. I could try salvia maybe because it only lasts like 5 minutes, but ive never smoked anything before. Ive never gone to any parties or anything.

Strangely enough i had a dream last night about drugs haha. I have never done any before, and an old HS guy who i knew for doing drugs was there. IT was like a party where everyone was smoking weed and doing lsd type drugs. I took these pills that made me feel really crazy. Dreams are ****ed up
