Adverse Effects of Psychedelics - Serotonin Toxicity and HPPD


Webinar Workshop Description

After being demonized for more than half a century, several myths related to adverse effects of psychedelics persist. In response to exaggerated or sensational reports of harm, people may be overly cautious or have misconceptions relating to safety risks. Conversely, others may become tone deaf or inappropriately dismissive when adverse effects occur.

In my opinion, like most things that are polarized, the truth lies somewhere between the extremes. As a psychiatric pharmacist safety of psychoactive drug use is a primary concern and have had the opportunity to co-author a chapter in the Handbook of Medical Hallucinogens relating to adverse effects.

This workshop will aim to have balanced and evidence-based discussion of adverse effects relating to psychedelics. The objectives are to:

  • Differentiate side effects from adverse effects of psychedelics
  • Describe acute and persistent adverse effects of psychedelics
  • Define Serotonin Toxicity and Hallucinogen Persisting Perceptual Disorder
  • Discuss risk factors, prevention, and treatment of adverse effects related to psychedelics

The workshop consists of ~75min of lecture followed by ~45min of case review and audience Q&A. Access to a webpage with a copy of the recording and PDF slides for download are included in purchase. Members of the Resource and Support Program can attend via the Member Portal and do not need to register and can access a recording via the member portal.
