Serotonin syndrome from DMT use?
avatar
An_227071 posted:
Earlier this evening, a friend of mine had an unusual trip.
He smoked a large amount of DMT (between 80 - 120 mg) and experienced a fast heartbeat, and a feverish feeling, and slight delirium, along with the usual hallucinations experienced with DMT.

Is it possible that my friend's serotonin levels became dangerously high? He is not taking any MAOIs.

What is DMT ?

Louise_WebMD_Staff replied to An_227072's response:
A hallucinogenic drug from plants generally. MAOIs intensify the effect. Otherwise it tends to be a 10-15 min high if smoked.

Honestly, that sounds a lot like the normal effects of DMT.
