Introspective Acceptance of Gender Identity: Case Report Detailing Resolution of Gender Dysphoria After Use of LSD
Joseph Pullara, M.D.
Volume 1 Issue 1
Gender dysphoria is a rare psychiatric disorder that has traditionally been managed and treated using hormone replacement and intensive plastic surgery. Most psychiatric medications and therapies offer little benefit in regards to the symptoms of gender dysphoria and instead are initiated to treat associated conditions such as anxiety or depressive disorders. This report describes the case of a 32-year-old male patient with a long-standing history of Gender Dysphoria (GD) who had symptoms almost completely resolve after orally ingesting 300 micrograms of Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD). This case serves to provide evidence in support of LSD as an effective psychotherapeutic treatment modality.
