Would it be a bad idea to MD mushrooms every other day for a month or so, until I sail through my SSRI withdrawal symptoms?

I had been gradually tapering off my dose for the past 6-8 weeks. Now It has been 3 days since I have completely stopped taking Sertraline / Zoloft. I expect the next few weeks to be a bit rough. I have been MDing once every 3 days for the last month or so. I think increasing my dose frequency temporarily to every other day may help me sail through the withdrawal effects.

My question is, would it be a bad idea to MD Psilocybin Mushrooms every other day for a month or so, until I sail through my SSRI withdrawal symptoms?

EDIT: Just to clarify, I stopped SSRI with support and guidance from my GP.

Also the withdrawal effects are not as bad as I had been fearing. But I still want to make the process as smooth as possible without over doing shrooms and unnecessary creating shroom tolerance.

I also tried coming off SSRIs in 2017, but then the withdrawal symptoms were brutal and I had to go back to my meds. Unfortunately, at that time I did not know about microdosing. This time it has been much smooth and I attribute it to micro-dosing 🙂

Microdosing shrooms and weed combo

As the title says, I have been microdosing mushrooms for a while and since Tuesday I switched to weed. It’s been really beneficial and I feel I’ve worked through years of issues. However, I’m starting a new job tomorrow and I dread it a bit (haven’t worked for 2 years). I’m a bit scared that if I take mushrooms tomorrow I will be completely whacked out. What is your experience switching from one substance to another? I have no idea what mood I’m going to be in tomorrow – I’ll probably be anxious, and not wanting to go there 😬, and a bit socially awkward since I haven’t socialized properly with people the last year… only close friends and family which doesn’t count bc they accept me as I am 😂

About to start MD’ing LSD. Tips/advice welcomed!

Hey everyone! I’m relatively experienced when it comes to psychedelics, but I’ve recently decided to start microdosing regularly. I have 50 tabs of 30ug landing within the next couple days, and I’d love to get any advice from those more experienced before I start.

I plan on either cutting the tabs into halves or thirds for a 15/10ug microdose (thoughts?). I’ve also seen some stuff on the distilled water method, which I’d like to learn more about as well.

I’m diagnosed with manic depression (bipolar), ADHD, and general anxiety. I’m a psychology nut, so it’s my belief that my anxiety originates from the depressive, low esteemed stages of my bipolar disorder. My goal is to better control my depressed cycles, which I think will also help my anxiety. I’m also helplessly addicted to nicotine, which i would LOVE to quit.

Let me know if my goals/expectations are reasonable, or throw me any information you guys think is important. Thanks in advance!

Headache 2 days after microdosing psilocybin?

I started microdosing psilocybin on Friday, with the plan to dose again in 3 days (Monday). I took 30 mg (I have a really slow metabolism and drugs are super strong for me so we started small). I felt really good on Friday, and that continued yesterday, but this morning I woke up with a headache, which is unusual for me. I googled it and apparently microdosing can cause a delayed headache? My question to you is, should I wait until my regularly scheduled dose tomorrow, or should I adjust and dose after 2 days instead of 3? Will that avoid the headache?
