Serotonin syndrome: what is it, what are the symptoms and how to avoid it?

Hey Ravers! It's important to party responsibly and stay informed about potential risks. Let's talk about serotonin syndrome, a condition you should be aware of when using certain substances.

What is Serotonin Syndrome?
Serotonin syndrome is a rare but serious condition that occurs when there's an excess of serotonin in your body. It can result from combining substances that affect serotonin levels, such as MDMA, certain antidepressants, or psychedelics. Knowing the signs can help you stay safe.

Recognizing the Symptoms:

  • Increased body temperature and sweating
  • Muscle rigidity and tremors
  • Rapid heart rate and high blood pressure
  • Dilated pupils and agitation
  • Confusion and hallucinations
  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarhea

Reducing the Risks: 

  • Know the substances you're taking and their potential effects on serotonin levels.
  • Avoid mixing substances that impact serotonin, especially within a short time frame.
  • Start with low doses to gauge your body's reaction before increasing.
  • Stay hydrated and take regular breaks to cool down during intense physical activity.

Seeking Help:
If you or someone you know experiences symptoms of serotonin syndrome, it's crucial to seek medical attention immediately. Don't hesitate to call for help or visit a medical facility. Early intervention can prevent complications.

Remember:
Enjoying recreational substances can be fun, but it's essential to prioritize your well-being. Be mindful of the substances you're combining and educate yourself about potential risks. Stay informed, party smart, and look out for one another.
