TripSit releases V3.0 of its drug combination chart

After many months of work, TripSit is proud to announce a new release of its popular drug combination reference chart. This new version includes many corrections, updates and clarifications. We have also moved towards a simpler visual style, to allow users to more easily identify drug combinations. We hope that this update continues to serve as a useful harm reduction tool for both drug users and for harm reduction organisations.

TripSit Combo Chart

Less common drugs, such as PCP and now aMT have been removed from the chart, though the combination information for these drugs is still available on their respective factsheet pages.

As always, this chart should only be taken as an ‘at-a-glance’ reference to the safety of drug combinations, and we hope for it to be a jumping off point for the informed drug user to aid in making sensible decisions with drugs. It’s certainly not intended as a sole reference point! With this release, we also have put a lot of work into describing the reasons and particular dangers of certain combinations, which can be found either at the bottom of https://combo.tripsit.me/ or on individual drug pages on http://drugs.tripsit.me/.

TripSit Wiki is now open for editing

Since the TripSit Wiki started in 2012, it has grown into a large resource for harm reduction information, which receives hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world. With the advent of our factsheets covering much of the basic information on drugs, our Wiki now functions as a platform for more involved and in-depth articles about drugs and how to use them safely.

Along with many pages including extended information about drugs themselves, we have guides on many subjects including how to help yourself and others with their trips, how to deal with a panic attack, volumetric dosing, cold water extractions and many more.

We have decided to open the Wiki to edits from the public – anyone can now make an account and add to the information. Previously, we required accounts to be approved before they could make any changes. 

With this change, we hope to make TripSit’s resources easier to contribute to, allowing us to work together to provide even more valuable and varied information to the drug-using public, and give people the chance to more easily contribute to a resource which is seen by people all over the world.

If you want to help with the Wiki, you can go right ahead and create an account, but you may want to consider joining our IRC channel to discuss edits and work on changes with other contributors – we can also give you ideas for what needs doing! You can also go here to find out about other ways you can help TripSit, such as editing our factsheet database.

New Drug Combinations Release

2pointoAfter the initial release of our drug combinations resource over a year ago, its resultant poster has proven popular among the drug community, and has even been displayed by several harm reduction organisations at festivals.

Following feedback from users and ideas from our own team, we have worked over the past few months to improve our combinations resources and now we are pleased to announce the release of the second version of our combination chart, as well as the availability of combinations information directly on our factsheets.

Alongside the new version of the poster, which we have modified to be more easily printable and readable, we have revised a lot of the categorisations to make the actual safety of a particular drug combination clearer for the user.

We’ve done this firstly by splitting the ‘Unsafe’ category into two new categories ‘Caution’ and ‘Unsafe,’ which gives a more clear indication as to how likely bodily harm is from a regular dose of a particular combination; whether a combination should be avoided entirely or if it’s more a matter of the combination making the user uncomfortable with a smaller risk of actual harm. We have also changed a few of the safety categorisations based on new research.

Secondly, we have annotated many of our combinations with information on exactly why the combination is considered dangerous, with more elucidation as to the specific drugs to be avoided when comparing larger drug categories (such as opioids).

Alongside the combinations chart and its associated Wiki page, we have also made the information directly accessible for individual drugs from the ‘interactions’ section of drug profiles on our factsheets website, where you can for example on the DOM page see that interactions of note are annotated with specific information about the combination. The factsheets website has also undergone some additional usability improvements which come with this release.

We are continuing to develop our combinations database, along with our other resources, focusing on clarity and accuracy. Currently we are working on building a central normalised database of drug effects and references, using these to directly annotate our drug database and then create new and better tools for users to access harm reduction information (however note that many references are already available in free-text on the combinations Wiki page).

We hope the second release of our combinations resources increases their capacity to help users make safer and more informed decisions around drug use. If you notice a discrepancy, an entry you feel is incorrect or have a great idea, we are happy to receive feedback via mail to content@tripsit.me or by using the contact form on this site.

TripSit Factsheets

The TripSit team is always looking for new ways we can more easily and effectively communicate harm reduction information concerning drugs to our users; we believe that the accessibility of this data is paramount to giving people the ability to make safer and more informed decisions about their drug use.

A major incarnation of this effort are our Factsheets, which provide simple and easily digestible information on more than 250 drugs. By providing a single page with summarised information on various important traits of a drug, a factsheet quickly and easily informs a user of the major issues to be aware of when taking the drug. Similar to our drug combinations chart, they are designed to give an accessible overview of important data, while for more in-depth information about a drug, we have the TripSit Wiki.

TripSit Drug Combination Chart

After several months of research and work by the TripSit and r/drugs team, we are proud to announce the first release of our drug combination reference chart!

This chart is designed as a quick reference for drug combinations and their possible interactions. The information has been researched to the greatest ability by our team, but is not intended to be used as a guideline or recommendation for use. Also, please note that while a combination may be marked ‘green,’ its synergistic effects may still be overwhelming – always be cautious when combining drugs and start with lower doses. Please try to be safe!
