Can you dose after microdosing? How much time should you space between doses?
Everyone is different. I’ve dosed the day after microdosing. I’ve microdosed the day after microdosing. I always felt the effects. It always went well. Some people report short-term tolerance and the need to take a little more to feel an equivalent effect the day after a (micro)dose, but I wouldn’t necessarily advise that here. Wait a few days if you can between doses. Or, figure out why you may feel the need to dose so often.
(The Fadiman microdosing regimen recommends one day on, three days off. So if you want to take a big trip within a microdosing regimen, try sticking to on/off days, whether the dose is micro or not.)
How long will it last and how quickly will I feel it?
Depends on the size of the dose. Some people take so little that they feel nothing, just slightly happier and more focused throughout the day. I usually took 10-15mcg, so I’d feel something (more present, content, lifted, creative) within 20-45 minutes and it would typically last several hours. For me, 6-8 hours.
Why am I sleepy on a microdose? Why am I wired on a microdose?
Most people get energy from microdosing acid and may have a hard time sleeping or resting a few hours from the onset. However, I’ve taken recreational quarters at night many times and have been able to sleep at a reasonable hour. Some friends, not so much. We still don’t have a way to know how each and every person should dose because everyone reacts in their own way. I may even react differently to the same dose given my mental circumstances at the time. Some people report mania and anxiety from microdosing and studies have shown possible increases in neuroticism.
Fatigue from microdosing is not common, so if you’re feeling sleepy, you are likely truly exhausted and need to rest. Psychedelics can make you more aware of your self, your body, its needs and processes.
If you get too anxious/manic or exhausted/depleted on a microdose, it may be good to halt future use or seek help in case of emergency.
Can I mix a microdose with prescription drugs, like Adderall or Vyvanse?
You possibly could, but probably shouldn’t. Even mixing caffeine with a microdose can be too much and cause anxiety/increased heart rate. Slow your role. Protect your heart.
