Symptoms of LSD Addiction

LSD addiction may be mistaken for other hallucinogenic abuse, but there are distinct symptoms of LSD addiction which can be zeroed in on to make an affirmative assessment, just short of getting tested for LSD (which is an option!). Users of LSD are often disconnected with the world around them, and may seem free spirited, melting in a pile of their own euphoric stew. Although the jovial effects of the LSD are not long lasting and ultimately result in the complete opposite: chronic mood disorders, violent mood swings, inability to feel happy or whole, and the development of anxiety disorders.  

Physical Symptoms of LSD Use

  The physical symptoms of LSD can be difficult to identify if you’re not familiar with them. If you suspect one of your loved ones to be under the influence of LSD pay special attention to the following signs and symptoms of use:  
  • Profuse Sweating
  • Disorientation and Impaired Motor Ability
  • Dilated Pupils
  • Chaotic Speak
  • Salivation
  • Dry Mouth
  • General Weakness
  • Blurred Vision
  • Inability to Operate Everyday Appliances
  • Tingling Fingers and Toes

Psychological Symptoms of LSD Use

  • Chronic Mood Shifts
  • Shift in Perspective
  • Psychosis
  • Hallucinations, Visual, Auditory, Sensory
  • Speed Confusion
  • Out of Body Experiences
  The effects of LSD permeate throughout the mind and body for as long as 12 hours. The danger of overdose throughout that time occurs when users, who are feeling the diminishing effects of LSD take another dose of the drug, perhaps not knowing the substance is still active in their system. If enough active LSD circulates through the bloodstream overdose and toxicity from LSD will occur.  

General Profile of LSD Users

  Although anyone can abuse LSD, typically those who are in the midst of emotional turmoil are most at risk to abuse addictive substances. Because LSD induces a euphoric effect upon use, those with untreated depressive disorders or similar mood disorders may be allured by LSD in an attempt to self medicate and be freed from their depressive state. LSD is commonly used in:  
  • Social Settings
  • Club Scenes
  • Raves
  • Underground Parties

Hallucinogens Which Act Similarly to LSD

  Addictive substances used in conjunction with LSD may present health complications and accidentally induce overdose. Commonly abused substances used with LSD may include hallucinogens in the same drug class, including:  
  • PCP
  • Mushrooms
  • Psilocybin
  • Peyote
  • DMT
  • Ketamine
  • DXM
  • Salvia Divinorum
  • MDMA
  • Ecstasy
