Abstract

Theoretical reasons for the use of LSD as an analgesic agent are elaborated. In a series of 128 patients the analgesic action of LSD is further confirmed, and the undesirable pharmacologic effects are discussed. The relative safety of the drug for that use is demonstrated, and further study is recommended.
