Psylocibin and Asenapine

I am bipolar type II, and interested in taking psylocibin. I take 15mg of asenapine nightly and am wondering how my antipsychotics would  affect the psylocibin I plan to ingest. I am of sound body and mind and this is not my first time at the rodeo so please no comments about taking hallucinogenics despite being on antipsychotics. I am not looking for therapy I am looking for hard scientific data. thank you for your time

You wanted had data? Take a look at these scientific articles, each of them showing that patient with underlining psychiatric conditions are at high risk for long -term  psychotic episodes from psylocibin ingestion. Have fun.

This is not what I asked for at all. I've never had a psychotic episode, have had mushrooms multiple times, and haven't taken them in two years.  Your articles refer to abuse.  Downvote for didactic and not following the rubric. Thank you for absolutely wasting my time
