Promising Effects of LSD-Assisted Therapy on Anxiety in Life-Threatening Illnesses

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, researchers investigated the efficacy and safety of LSD-assisted therapy for patients experiencing anxiety, with or without association with a life-threatening illness. The study involved 42 patients receiving either 200 μg of oral LSD or a placebo in two separate sessions. The primary endpoint was anxiety symptoms measured 16 weeks after the last treatment session using the Spielberger State-Trait Anxiety Inventory–Global score. The results showed significant reductions in anxiety scores up to 16 weeks after treatment, as well as reductions in comorbid depression symptoms. Positive acute subjective drug effects and mystical-type experiences correlated with long-term reductions in anxiety symptoms. While mild, transient side effects were reported by 19% of patients, only one serious treatment-related adverse event occurred (acute transient anxiety). Overall, LSD-assisted therapy demonstrated notable and long-lasting reductions in anxiety and depression symptoms.
