New Study On Iboga Deaths

Hi everyone, sorry for not updating for such a long time!

The life of an addict is a hectic one so finding the time to write original and intersting material can be difficult!

Anyway, the long awaited study relating to deaths with Ibogaine has finally been released and here's the abstract!

ABSTRACT: Ibogaine is a naturally occurring psychoactive plant alkaloid that is used globally in medical and nonmedical settings for opioid
detoxification and other substance use indications. All available autopsy, toxicological, and investigative reports were systematically reviewed for the
consecutive series of all known fatalities outside of West Central Africa temporally related to the use of ibogaine from 1990 through 2008. Nineteen
individuals (15 men, four women between 24 and 54 years old) are known to have died within 1.5–76 h of taking ibogaine. The clinical and postmortem
evidence did not suggest a characteristic syndrome of neurotoxicity. Advanced preexisting medical comorbidities, which were mainly cardiovascular,
and ⁄ or one or more commonly abused substances explained or contributed to the death in 12 of the 14 cases for which adequate
postmortem data were available. Other apparent risk factors include seizures associated with withdrawal from alcohol and benzodiazepines and the
uninformed use of ethnopharmacological forms of ibogaine.

I'm not sure what the situation is with copyright, and the file is too big to copy and paste so if anyone wants a copy please email me and ill forward you the full document....
