  1. So for a couple of years I was smoking weed, eventually becoming a daily smoker for around 6 months. During this period I started experimenting with psychedelics. I noticed after using MDMA a couple of times that I would have slight after images for a day or so later but wrote it off. Then after a couple of trips on 2C-B I developed an intense case of palinopsia along with depersonalisation and occasional 'shifting' of textures etc. I figured it would go if I stropped tripping so I did, and 6 months later it was still there. I thought maybe I should stop smoking weed, and id already cut down a hell of a lot due to the extreme anxiety I've developed because of this HPPD or whatever it would be called. Anyway so I did quit for around four months, consuming nothing but alcohol but still no luck. I should add that during this time I've been having a very healthy diet, taking a lot of vitamins and have tried several herbal cures like rhodiola, St. John's wort, ginkgo, gotu kola, all sorts. Anyway after a few months of occasional weed use I quit again and have now been without weed or alcohol or anything for an entire month, still with no improvement. The dp/dr went for the most part rather quickly but I'm really sick of these afterimaes getting in the way of my life, I also feel 10 seconds behind all the time, generally slow and stupid, which is upsetting to me as I was a high achiever and cannot perform as well in my degree any more. I guess some extent of dp/dr is still there as o can often feel her disconnected from myself or my environment when put in social situations, especially if im not feeling 100% to begin with. Does anyone have help or advice? I want to get back to my life as it was before, I was very happy and now feel almost clinically depressed. I've been offered SSRIs but I don't want to take something like that daily, and don't like the idea of benzos. Cannabis and occasional psychedelics/MDMA used to help me greatly with my personal issues but now smoking weed actually gives me anxiety. Is there any medication people know of that could help with the palinopsia and this mental slowness? Thanks to anyone who can help or advise me
