Druggy feeling

3 posts in this topic

I regularly have a feeling of being stoned or on a low dose of mushrooms. I know that many sufferers have similar symptoms. Is there any medication/ treatment to reduce this?

For a long time, I constantly felt like I'd recently taken some psychedelic. With time, this feeling has diminished. It's still there, but to a lesser extent, and I've mostly learned not to be scared by it (this in itself helps a lot, but it all takes time, of course).

That being said, benzodiazepines (particularly clonazepam) definitely gave me some short-term relief, but it's not something I dare use on a daily basis.
For me, Keppra (Levetiracetam) did provide some relief from the visual symptoms of HPPD, which helped with the general feeling of derealization. Unfortunately, my doctor took me off the drug due to elevated liver enzymes, but this seems like a fairly uncommon reaction.

Sorry that I don't have any "quick fix" answer to your question :-/ .

I had this when I first got HPPD but it only lasted for about three months. I constantly felt high, but not in a good way, and it felt like a weed high rather than acid which is the drug that gave me HPPD. I always thought this was strange because I hadn't smoked weed in two years prior to getting HPPD. I also had Depersonalization symptoms of feeling transported back in time to when I was in high school. Clearly some aspect of my hippocampus got messed up, but like I said these feelings have mostly dissipated. I still feel them a bit here and there but they're hardly noticeable at this point.
