  1. Zyprexa.
  2. This is the one that replaced my old pdoc who really worked with me on HPPD and took it seriously. I'm going to show her articles. I couldn't find the keppra one but I found the sinemet one, one where they used lamictal (which I've already tried), and a couple of others just to show her it's a real disorder. I'm going to tell her that these are my next options: *Upping the depakote to see if that does anything * Keppra * Sinemet And will report back with whatever I get and its efficacy.
  3. Don't do it man. This morning I was in the planning stages of ending my life. You don't want to go down the road of what this could do to you. It's just not worth it.
  4. Just echoing everyone else...definitely abstain.
  5. I don't know about destroyed. Downregulated maybe but I don't think you're going to see actual receptor destruction unless you're doing heavy amounts of MDMA and that's serotonergic receptors. Even hardcore coke and meth addicts "recover" after 4 or 5 years sober.
  6. I'm going to ask for sinemet tomorrow when I see my psychiatrist.
  7. You're right. The root of all this is fear and anxiety. I've made incredible progress in the past couple of months because I finally came to the realisation that the images couldn't hurt me. I no longer have panic but the anxiety still lingers.
  8. Social interaction makes me feel a lot better. That's one thing I've noticed.
  9. Thanks. I know you guys don't really have any answers beyond the ones you've given me. Just my OCD reassurance seeking. Some part of me says its not just HPPD, but I know that's all just anxiety and hypochondria.
  10. I wonder about choline because my gp had given me hydroxyzine which is an anticholinergic after the panic started. I was taking it every day for about a month then the mental hallucinations started.
  12. I think you should have full diagnostic testing done by a trained psychologist. I'm not going to diagnose you but you obviously have symptoms of an anxiety disorder with obsessive thinking and probably some depression. Like Jay said those can all be targeted with CBT. Also look into Mindfulness Based CBT for obsessive and ruminative thoughts.
  13. I found this article very interesting. While I'm not seeing overt external hallucinations like this woman I am experiencing something that resembles daytime parahypnagogia, although it all seems mental. There's a part of me that knows this is all bullshit, but a part of me that can't control it. I'm pretty sure it was brought on by extreme stress, panic, and sleep deprivation in late 2015 but I'm not sure how to reverse it. K.B., doc, any ideas?
  14. I have pretty severe OCD and was wondering if inositol would make hppd worse? Thinking of trying it for my obsessive and intrusive thoughts as I've read it's a good supplement for that but that it could be working on serotonin?
