Treatment - Group 6—Psilocybin (Psilocin and Other Indole Derivatives)

Measures to remove the toxin are not necessary. Therapy may primarily be directed to reassurance since some patients exhibit panic reaction. Recovery for the majority of patients is within 6 hours. Seizures and hyperthermia most often occur in children. In poisonings where hyperthermia presents, the course of treatment is cooling blankets or sponge baths but NEVER salicylates.
