Nausea is associated with so many things that it can be hard to attribute it to reflux. But, says Dr. Coyle, "in some people, the only manifestation they have of reflux is nausea. If you have nausea and can't figure out why, one of the things [to] think about is reflux."
And if the nausea tends to come on right after meals, that's even more of an indication that it might be acid reflux. If so, a regular antacid treatment such as an over-the-counter acid-countering medicine could cut down on your discomfort.
Much research has been done on the potential long-term effects of using peyote on a regular basis. This research found that most people using peyote in religious settings fail to experience any negative effects, other than occasional short-term nausea and stomach pain. The lack of lasting phsycial and mental trauama is one of the things that distinguishes peyote from other hallucinogens. However, there are a few reported cases of users developing hallucinogen persisting perception disorder (hppv). HPPV is also seen in frequent users of LSD, acid and other hallucinogens. The condition causes sufferers to experience flashbacks of hallucinations a long time after taking the drug. The biggest danger of HPPV is that the sufferer may experience a flashback while he or she is operating a moving vehicle or engaging in some other potentially life-threatening activity.
Heavy users of mescaline may develop a tolerance to the drug. Although it takes a really large amount of mescaline the cause an overdose, the built-up tolerance to mescaline poses a risk in that it can be transferred over to other hallucinogens. This means that a person with a high tolerance for mescaline will also have a high tolerance for LSD and angel dust, even if he or she has never used those drugs.
The biggest risk in using peyote or mescaline in recreational setting is that drugs sold on the street and billed as mescaline almost always contain other drugs, such as LSD, ecstasy and angel dust. While mescaline is not necessarily harmful in and of itself, the other drugs commonly found in mescaline tablets certainly are.
