Signs and symptoms of the use of LSD differ from the signs that are recognized with other mainstream drug abuse situations. Sensations and feelings change more dramatically than any physical indication of uses. Abuse is recognized for LSD users by noticing any signs of the user experiencing:
- Greatly reduced perception of reality, for example, interpreting input from one of your senses as another, such as hearing colors and seeing sounds
- Permanent mental changes in perception
- Rapid heart rate
- High blood pressure
- Flashbacks, a re-experience of the hallucinations — even years later
Sensory perceptions may be altered to various degrees. An awareness of the user’s personality may also be a contributing help in understanding where the degree of abuse is. These are possible additional changes to the user:
Most users voluntarily stop the use of LSD over a period of time since it is not known to be an addictive drug and does not produce drug-seeking behavior. Long-term effects have been noted such as:
- Severe depression
Sold on streets in the forms of tables, capsules and occasionally liquid. It is colorless and odorless but can have a slightly bitter taste. The user’s sense of self is altered with using LSD and when on a trip can have intense episodes of mood swings. Although there is no record of physical addiction to LSD, the psychological dependency is a possible form of addiction as well as the change in tolerance after a person has been using LSD for an extended amount of time.
