I shudder at the thought of using questionable drugs with ADs. I am a veteran of all the illegal drugs out there. I loved them. And I still want them, years later. But very simply, introducing another drug just complicates the already complicated mysteries of brain chemistry. Even though I need a cocktail of 2, 3, or 4 prescrips to be in control, I know from experience I can't start or stop them all at once. One at a time. Otherwise there is no way of knowing what's going on.

I don't want a street drug to get in the way of the prescrips doing their job. Maybe a street drug would actually potentiate. Maybe it would counteract. But we really don't know. That's an unknown I keep at arm's length. It's hard enough to manage the prescrips without adding another questionable ingredient to mess with the works.

There is no question I was predisposed to depression, based on my grandparents' history. But so often I get this gut instinct that it was the chronic marijuana use for decades, the seldom trips to the moon on LSD, mescaline, shrooms, the trips to a false land of utopia on cocaine, that all contributed to screwing up something that was just waiting to be screwed up in a vulnerable way.

I do have a half glass of wine sometimes and I feel great. Wish my ADs worked as good as that half glass of wine. I've already demonstrated my heroic bravery on various street drugs. It got me nowhere except backwards. Based on personal experience and gut instinct, I strongly recommend staying away. Stick to the prescrips. That's tricky enough.
