pharmacological effect, may become dangerous in the presence of
an MAO inhibitor and cause headache, stiff neck, cardiovascular
difficulties, and even death. MAO inhibitors may intensify and
prolong the effects of other drugs (CNS depressants, narcotic
analgesics, anticholinergics, dibenzazepine antidepressants,
etc.) by interfering with their metabolism. In the presence of an
MAO inhibitor many substances which are ordinarily non-active
because of their swift metabolism may become potent psychoactive
drugs. The phenomenon may create a new series of mind alterants.

However, because of the complex and precarious variables
involved, it is risky and foolish for anyone to experiment with
these possibilities on the non-professional level.
The most commonly used MAO inhibitors include hydrazines
such as iproniazid, Marsilid, Marplan, Niamid, Nardil, Catron;
also non-hydrazines such as propargylamines, cyclopropylamines,
aminopyrazine derivatives, indolealkylamines, and
carbolines. MAO-inhibiting materials discussed in this book
include yohimbine, various tryptamines, especially 5-MeO-DMT and
the methyltryptamines, and the various harmala alkaloids. The
latter are especially potent inhibitors but, like yohimbine and
the trytamines, are short)lasting in action (30 minutes to
several hours). Some of the commercial MAO inhibitors listed
above are effective for several days to several weeks.
Among the materials which may be dangerous in
combination with MAO inhibitors are sedatives, tranquilizers,
antihistamines, narcotics and alcohol ) any of which can cause
hypotensive crisis (severe blood pressure drop); and amphetamines
(even diet pills), mescaline, asarone, nutmeg (active doses),
macromerine, ephedrine, oils of dill, parsley or wild fennel,
beer, wine, cocoa, aged cheese and other tyrosine)containing
foods (tyrosine is converted into tyramine by bacteria in the
bowel) ) any of which can cause hypertensive crises (severe blood

Unless you believe that Salvia divinorum is the old Mexica (Aztec) narcotic plant pipiltzintzintli (I don’t), the story of this fascinating mint began in the late 1930s. When R. Gordon Wasson and Albert Hoffman brought back material for Carl Epling to identify (Wasson 1962, 1963; Epling and Játiva-M 1962), they ended a search that had lasted nearly a quarter of a century. Their party traveled through Oaxaca under the auspices of a famous Mexican anthropologist, Roberto Weitlaner (an Austrian by birth), who had been guiding expeditions to Oaxaca for decades (Pompa y Pompa 1966). I’ve quoted everything relative to S. divinorum from each of the following rather rare references, translating to English where necessary.
