  1. Good luck Marie, it is not a medicine I am aware of, but a quick wiki doesn't seem to show any red flags for hppd sufferers. Please keep us up to date with how things go!
  2. Welcome Emil. Hopefully these new symptoms die down after a few weeks, CBD can have some strange effects on some of us, but i don't think it will cause long term damage. I would try to stay away from any meds and cures, for now, and start to get used to your baseline. You clearly (like so many of us) do not tolerate any sort of stimulus in the body, so total sobriety is the best step, for now... If you are still feeling bad in a few weeks/months, then start to think about the next steps.
  3. Can happen with most anti seziure meds, including Keppra, Lamictal and Clonazepam
  4. That does sound interesting, thanks! Sounds like it will hit the UK in 2020, so I might try to get on this one.
  5. You have hppd, yes. Sounds nothing like schizophrenia, so stop panicking about that. Just go sober, east healthy, distract yourself and see where you are in a few months.
  6. Please tell us a little more about your symptoms, your story etc. It's extremely unlikely you have schizophrenia.
  7. You'll get great visual relief for about an hour until you fall asleep for 8 hours 😅
  8. Yea, this is a symptom of depersonalisation, often associated with hppd. When it happens to me, I pinch my arm as hard as I can and it seems to ground me a bit.
  9. It's a pretty amazing med for HPPD, just a damn shame it is addictive and tolerance building. Hopefully one day, something similar comes out that we can take every day. The tiredness gets a bit easier, though I can still get that groggy, sinking tiredness with 1mg. (2mg, forget about it!... I take that only when really hungover)
  10. Hey Sami. Glad to hear clonazepam worked. It's the only thing that works for me I try my best to stick with 3 days on, 4 days off... but do sometimes do 4 days on, 3 days off and it seems to be ok (i try to do 10 days off every 2-3 months). At first, i took 2mg, as that really helped my visuals, but after a while, I realised that 1mg was often enough to help with anxiety, without doing much for my visuals. I think this lower dose has helped me stay tolerance/addiction free (though i do sometimes take 1.5mg and even 2mg on occasion). I tend to take the full dose as soon as I wake up, it lasts all day. I've stuck to the above for around 10 years now and it has made my life so much better. Even the days off, my anxiety is eased just knowing that I have some anxiety free days coming soon. Good luck, Jay
  11. For sure... When I was at my lowest, I packed up my bags and went travelling... Challenging myself really helped fix my mindset.
  12. Like MadDoc, I would be massively sceptical... Every time i've taken a substance, post-hppd, it's made me worse.. Either short term or long term. My guess is these reports are from someone who either didn't have hppd to begin or someone trolling.
  13. good luck mate, hope all goes well.. keep us posted
  14. at this point, I would just focus on reducing any stress and anxiety. It doesn't matter how you do this, watching tv, listening to music, going out in nature... whatever works, just do it as much as you can. I think stay away from meds is not the worst idea, right now. Finding and understanding your baseline is a good thing, then you are better equipped to know what meds, vitamins etc are doing to you, if you ever do go down that route (I personally take clonazepam 2-3 times a week to keep my anxiety down)
