Even though only 6.4% of teens ages 18-25 in 2010 had ever used LSD in their lifetime, a recent incident in 2017 broadcasted that a teenage boy had died due to an overdose of LSD with alcohol.
The user will experience extreme mood swings and could feel several emotions at once. If taken in large enough doses, the drug produces delusions and visual hallucinations.
Sensations may seem to "cross over," giving the feeling of hearing colors and seeing sounds. These changes are frightening and can use panic.
I can see the chirping of the crickets, and I can see the sound of my screams.
I can hear the color black!
The physical effects include dilated pupils, higher body temperature and sweating, nausea and loss of appetite, increased blood pressure and heart rate, sleepiness, dry mouth, and tremors. An overdose could be lethal.
The after effects of LSD could be severe depression, schizophrenia, and flashbacks. These effects can still take place a couple months after the last dose.
