5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeO-DMT) used in a naturalistic group setting is associated with unintended improvements in depression and anxiety

Of those reporting having been diagnosed with depression (41%) or anxiety (48%), most reported these conditions were improved (depression=80%; anxiety=79%) following 5-MeO-DMT use, and fewer reported they were unchanged (depression=17%; anxiety=19%) or worsened (depression=3%; anxiety=2%). Improvement in depression/anxiety conditions were associated with greater intensity of mystical experiences and higher ratings of the spiritual significance and personal meaning of the 5-MeO-DMT experience. There were no associations between depression or anxiety improvement and the intensity of acute challenging physical/psychological experience during the 5-MeO-DMT experience. Future prospective controlled clinical pharmacology studies should examine the safety and efficacy of 5-MeO-DMT administration for relieving depression and anxiety.
