Can you get stuck in an acid trip?

LSD’s hallucinogenic effects last an unusually long amount of time; 12 to 18 hours, to be precise.

What happens when you take acid?

LSD users often experience loss of appetite, sleeplessness, dry mouth and tremors. Visual changes are among the more common effects—the user can become fixated on the intensity of certain colors. Extreme changes in mood, anywhere from a spaced-out “bliss” to intense terror, are also experienced.
