Generally the high begins about 30 to 60 minutes after intake. The type of effect of LSD is highly dependent on the emotional state of the user. Because unlike a lot of other drugs LSD does not automatically produce a positive, controllable experience, but rather enhances the already present state of mind and brings suppressed emotional matters to mind.
LSD disables habitual control mechanisms and reflexes.
Intensive sense of one’s own emotions and with it also the personal conflicts and repression.
Totally common negative emotional states, triggered perhaps by a break-up, the loss of a loved one, or a job, can also be intensified through the intake of LSD.
The intake of LSD can under circumstances trigger strong seizures in people with an epileptic disposition. For that reason people who have already experienced an epileptic seizure should abstain from taking LSD at all costs.
The use of hallucinogens (LSD, psilocybin, etc.) should at all costs be abstained from when suffering from schizophrenic psychoses, bipolar disorders, and borderline personality disorders.
Don’t consume LSD and other psychedelic substances on a full stomach and practise “psycho-hygiene”. That is, be mentally and physically light and easy-going. If you’re not in a good mood, then better abstain!
Only do LSD together with people who you know well and trust!

LSD can change the view on reality, lead to loosening of boundaries and living out sexual fantasies – this involves the risk of abstaining from safer sex, which increases the possibility of transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.
Sex and LSD only work with mutual agreement and great trust. Specifically with LSD there is a danger of having a bad trip. Therefore you should only experience sex and LSD together when you know each other and the effect well. Clear beforehand which sexual practices both partners want and which not.
Dose low, so you still can defend yourself and still recognise your partner’s defence mechanisms.
Before getting down to business, get sufficient amounts of sex utensils (gloves, condoms, lubricant) ready.
Pay attention to your body! If you notice any abnormalities, go to the doctor immediately. When having changing sex partners get tested for sexually transmitted diseases every 6 months and get vaccinated against hepatitis A/B.
HIV & LSD:
Take drugs and HIV medicine temporally offset. That may be able to lessen the interaction a bit. Always dose drugs low when taken simultaneously with medicine. The night often turns long – bring enough medicine along and keep your intake times. Talk to your doctor about the interaction between your HIV medicine and intoxicants!
There is no acute threatening interaction between HIV medicine and LSD, as the case may be, it comes unwanted intensification of effect when simultaneously taking protease inhibitors and Sustiva.
