[Ibogaine] cost and safety

Hi All,
If you want to do it in the states the cost is Ibogaine and your sitter.
I see no reason why your wife or a good friend can not be with you
and act as a sitter.  Should anything happen they dial 911 and either 
lie or tell the truth, I have no idea what I would do.  I would probable 
say he/she took something to help them kick their addiction but can't 
remember the name thus keeping it simple - discuss this before hand.
Flush wrappers, packing materials, receipts and such down the toilet
and hide things that should not be in plain site.
If you do it in Canada it is the price of the Ibogaine, sitter and motel room
for 2 or 3 days and food for the sitter.  Going to a clinic can cost thousands 
(like 5 or 10,000 and sometimes more).  It is VERY hard for some people 
to get the money to go to a clinic.  With the economy, unemployment 
being sick, being on disability, etc, most people are having problems paying 
rent, food and things necessary for life.
Safety is important but for those who are over 40 and really got in to it - how
many people do you know that died from ODs, how many robbed and killed,
how many suicides, how many in car accidents, how many lived their lives
in misery, how many...OK I'm done.  Each person must decide is it is worth
the risk for them to take Ibo "at home" or in a hotel room with a trusted who
will at least have the decently to dial 911.
Most people know of a place that sells Ibogaine in Canada if not I am sure
someone can mention it.  As a rule of thumb the dose is 20mg/kg of body
weight.  For example a person weighing 100 - 120 lbs would want 1 gram 
and a person weighing 200 - 220 lbs would want 2 grams.  I would suggest
having Gatorade, toilet paper (not being funny) and wear sweat pants for the
bowels can be loose and a deposit made should one sneeze.  Also, an 
overnight bag with toothbrush, extra clothes, deodorant, and maybe a 
candy bar, etc.  Also, have the waste basket next to you at all times and if
your in a hotel room be sure to put out the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the
Hope I helped,
  - JIM

I was Initiated overseas in the EU and the Sacrament/medication itself cost me a hand delivered copy of the American Esquire Magazine, from October of last year the one with the digital cover, brought by me from NYC to my father's hometown.  True story and you'll get to read more about it shortly, since now that Mister Obama has been seated I can begin again to focus on my career and my promised report on this is long overdue.

Cost is actually a relative term here and the way it was explained to me is that while the Sacrament/medication itself is very dear and hard to come by, due to its rather long growth cycle, what a Initiate/patient is actually mostly paying for is the services of the Sitter. 

Given the grueling nature of this process, for both the Initiate and Sitter, this is entirely reasonable. To do this right there really is no way the Sitter can devote less than 3 days to a week of their time to this process and that has got to be figured in to the cost equation.

This cannot be stressed enough that this is something that you do not want to fly solo on. I had contemplated either going to Amsterdam to see if I could hire Sarah to take me on in her clinic or renting a cheap room near my airport and luckily I got lucky with my Sitter who came from the most unlikely place, details of which I will also have in my report.

As far as the safety issue goes the overall track record has been that Ibo, as powerful as it is, is safer than aspirin, and what has been seen in the small handful of cases where things have gone awry is that problems mostly emerged because Initiates were less than honest when dealing with their providers.

Hi Gang,
     For the people who have been treated in the states; How much did it cost and did you feel that it was a safe experience?
