Drug Interaction Chart: How Different Drug Combinations Work

Poly-drug use can be safe, or it can be a disaster. Make sure you err on the side of caution with TripSit’s excellent guide to drug combination.

Looking at heading to a high-risk festival? Maybe just a night out? You may be thinking of taking a few different drugs at the same time. If this speaks to you, then you’re in luck, because there’s actually a way you can do that in a not-so-high-risk way, and it’s super easy.

Introducing the third iteration of TripSit’s Guide to Drug Combinations; designed not only to point out the level of risk in taking certain drug combinations, but which drugs create synergy, and which may have subtractive effects on one another. Think of it as the ultimate guide to a mixing drugs chart.

Intended as a tool for harm reduction, the chart covers drugs such as MDMA, alcohol, ketamine, cocaine, and various research chemicals, and points out associated risks with particular combinations – as well as how compatible certain drug combinations are.

The latest version of the chart has removed less common drugs such as PCP and aMT, however, information on each www.bernardspharmacy.com substance is still available on their respective fact sheets.

“This chart should only be taken as an ‘at-a-glance’ reference to the safety of drug combinations, and we hope for it to be a jumping off point for the informed drug user to aid in making sensible decisions with drugs. It’s certainly not intended as a sole reference point,” TripSit warns. 

And while Happy does not condone or condemn the idea of drugs or drug mixing, we acknowledge the wide spread use of safe recreational drug use and simply hope that a drug mixing chart like this can help keep people safer.
