LSD

 
lysergic acid diethylamide, a hallucinogen derived from lysergic acid, a constituent of ergot alkaloids. It has consciousness-expanding effects and is capable of producing a state of mind in which there are hallucinations (false sense perceptions). Called also lysergide. The perceptual changes brought about by LSD in normal persons are extremely variable and depend on factors such as age, personality, education, physical make-up, and state of health. The danger of the drug lies in the fact that it loosens control over impulsive behavior and may lead to a full-blown psychosis or less serious mental disorder in persons with latent mental illness. See also drug abuse.

LSD

Abbreviation for lysergic acid diethylamide.

LSD

(ĕl′ĕs-dē′)
n.
A crystalline compound, C20H25N3O, derived from lysergic acid and used as a powerful hallucinogenic drug. Also called acid.
A synthetic indole amine with hallucinogenic activity derived from ergot alkaloids, which produces mood elevations, sensory distortion, panic attacks, flashbacks
Route Oral
Dose LSD is 3,000–5,000-fold more potent that mescaline; in adults, 100–150 µg is enough for a ‘trip’
Diagnosis Physical exam
Laboratory diagnosis GC-MS (quantitative), HPLC, RIA (qualitative), TLC
Specimen Random urine

LSD

Abbrev. for lysergic acid diethylamide, a hallucinogenic drug derived from lysergic acid, once used in psychiatric research and treatment but now largely confined to illicit use. The drug is a powerful SEROTONIN antagonist and can induce a psychotic state with PARANOID delusions that can last for months.
