Best sticking to the 5-HTP and Tyrosine then
We used to have a little post and preload routine before a weekend out. Natural remedies for replenishing your brain chemicals.
Dopamine and Serotonin boosters
Ha , just dug out the mail from 13 years ago! LOL
PRELOAD - taking before the mdma
Take all these supplements about 1 hour before
- 200-500mg 5-hydrotyrptotophan (5-htp)
- 500-1000mg tyrosine
- 500-1500mg DLPA
- 2 grams of glutamine
- 1 gram Vitamin C
All should be available from a health food shop, the most important are Vitamin C and 5-HTP (numbers 1 and 5), 5-HTP is the most important one. The others (2,3,4) are not essential but with them the effects are better.
Take the preload supplements with fruit juice (Grapefruit is best) about 1 hour before the MDMA
"You can use 400mg of 5-htp, but start at 200mg as some people cant stomach it too well, then build on that. "
Do not eat foods high in Protein before you do this, as the amino acids in the protein will compete with the 5HTP (to cross the brain/blood barrier) and 5HTP will lose out and only a little bit will get into the brain, Carbohydrate food (pasta) is best.
POSTLOADING - taking after the mdma
Im not so sure now about prozac after MDMA, some Doctors are advising against it. “Some people take SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) several hours after taking MDMA. Thus is not to prolong or potentiate the MDMA trip but to prevent the possibility of a neurotoxin entering the 5-HT cell and damaging the cell’s axons. This has been shown to happen in animals after relatively high or repeated
However if you take E everyday, you dont wanna take prozac everyday as this will affect the quality of the MDMA high (half life of prozac is 30hours, ie the time taken to reduce to half its strength inside the body), so I wouldnt bother with prozac. Best to take some more 5-HTP, but if you do E every day, then you should probably take 5-HTP everyday, up to the maximum dose (400mg), and all the other stuff in 1-5 above.
