Can I take magic mushrooms with the active chemical psilocybin, please suggest

I have been taking 5mg aripiprazole pills daily for about two weeks. Today I have not taken any aripiprazole. I plan to take magic mushrooms today, with the active chemical psilocybin, and am wondering what interactions I can expect.

Hi.. Ariprazole can interact with the psilocybin and can increase the effects of psilocybin.. It is recommended to avoid it completely.. But if you are still going to try it on, the dose you take has to be very low, to prevent sideeffects and complications from occuring.. You may consult with your doctor to adjust the dose of aripiprazole instead...
