So I took lsd around 6 months ago. I realized I had hppd a couple weeks after, with some anxiety tied in there. I kept smoking weed and my visual snow and stuff got worse so I've quit all drugs except for nicotine and have been this way for 3 months. But ever since I took the acid, everything looks kind of different. Like everything looks kind of surreal, and colors are kinda brighter, and I'm always spaced out. I don't feel as if I'm completely in a dream or anything, but it's just the feeling that everything looks kinda "off" and something is slightly different. And when I'm in crowds, sometimes the collection of peoples voices will sound different than it used to. Is this de realization that is just a part of my hppd and slight anxiety, or what? And also, should I quit the nicotine to see if my visuals get better?
After reading so many articles I too believed that hppd/vs which is drug related ( including ssri's and benzo's) is caused by neuronal death . But I've also read that some ppl have fully recovered( after taking keppra or even without any meds) According to dr Abraham 50% fully recover . But does he mean the visuals completely disappear or that 50% of hppd patients recover mentally despite having disturbing visual symptoms?
this is an old thread but apparently this guy 100% cured his vs .
Honestly I'm just looking for something to get rid of vs . I can live with some negative after images and slight trailings .
I'm the exact same way. I think HPPD makes us more susceptible to those side effects. In general I've had tons of success going the natural route though. There's all kinds of herbal remedies to mental health issues that, as far as I can tell, work just as well as pharmaceuticals and are of course much safer.
