Sorry, but this post goes to show that you just can't believe evrything you read and hear.
> > I would like to add my side of the story for those of you wondering about the effects of zoloft and marijuana mixed together.
> > During high school a couple of my friends kept boasting about how excellent the two drugs were in combination. I was experiementing with LSD around this time and upon hearing this, I was sceptical. One weekend the four of us decided to get together at my friends lake cottage and test it out. We each took about five pills. After only thirty minutes and one joint it was clear that we hadn't just smoked marijuana.
> > As the sun set and the night took over things only grew more and more surreal. And of course we continued to smoke. Two hours later and feeling (physically, not mentally) like what I thought was probably like a cocaine high (never tried it)
> > we all agreed that we were, without a doubt experiencing some sort of psycedelia. However far different than LSD, or hallucigenic mushrooms. Odd in it's own way.
> > Visually things grew more and more defined and my friends and I started talking less and less. Reality and my imagination seemed to join hands. It seemed that any image in my head would soon try to enter my visual field. After another hour as I hit the bowl of marijuana and passed it to my friend, off in what appeared to be the distance, a figure formed in the sky of the tent. When I finally made it out, it swooped over the top of my head. A TERADACTOL!!! It was only the size of my hand. I laughed out in amazement. Not a bit scared and totally knowing what caused the hallucination. I told my friends who were all locked in there own separate worlds. I didn't get much more of a response than whaooo!! but I knew they completley believed me and could tell they were experiencing similar things.
> > As my trip continued more and more teredactols formed and swooped right passed me. They looked and flew just how you see them on television, but only 20 times smaller. Then bats joined and in and rapidly flapped around the tent. Bugs and spiders quickley formed all over the tent ceiling and would crawl over the top of my head where I was laying and then fell on my face. I could feel them! Taking a glance away I could see my friends hesterically laughing as swatting away there own hallucinations. We all went into trance.....
> > After that I have no memory of the rest of that night. Neither do my friends.
> > The next evening was even more bizarre, but that' s a different story.
> > In conclusion, I didn't tell this story to promote this drug interaction. I am actually against doctors prescibing Zoloft and other anitdepressants (in a lot of cases). For those of you who made previous posts bragging about how you are taking zoloft prescripition and frequently smoking marijuana at the same time, I worry for you sincerely. This is not a mind alteration to enter on a regular basis.That would be the road to serious mental illness. I urge all Zoloft users to try to get off of it. If that can't be done now, then I don't recommend frequent mixing of it with ANY other drug. Chances are you are taking Zoloft for some sort of mental problem, and I guarentee abuse of this powerful and very underestimated psycoactive drug will only make things worse for you in the end.
