Further research is needed to explore the interaction between certain selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and psychedelics (such as psilocybin, LSD, MDMA, DMT, and ayahuasca). However, preliminary evidence has presented a cruel irony of sorts, while peer-reviewed research, up to this day, remains sparse.

However, preliminary evidence has presented a cruel irony of sorts. What if those who can benefit the most from psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy may be hindered by their present, and perhaps even their past use of SSRIs.
