Medication for visuals

Recommended Posts

I haven't found a similar topic here on the forum, since most people discuss medication for cognitive and psychological problems, so I thought that I'd start one myself.

 

Like the topic says: Is there any medication that have worked for YOU and relieved your visual symptoms?

 

If so, post your story here. Also, if it has worsened DP/DR or made you develop it, mention that as well. Thanks!

Keppra greatly reduced my visuals for a couple days. But it stopped working for me on day 3.

Might be worth a try for you

 

That's a good start! What kind of symptoms were you experiencing? Dosage? For how long did you take it? Any other success regarding your visuals?

Benzos are the only thing that substantially reduce my visuals.

 What benzos are you taking? Dosage? Symptoms? Any other way that you can reduce your visuals? Also, any side effects from your benzo intake?

Klonopin, I get about 40% reduction from 1mg and about 70% from 1.5mg+ .... My symptoms are pretty bad, can't image it gets much worse, like maybe 1/2 a strong acid, visually.

 

I generally take klonopin 3 times a week:

Friday - 1mg

Saturday - 1.5mg

Sunday - 1.5mg

 

This stops the side effects/tolerance.... But I do get insomnia in the week.

I have visual static, auras, halos, closed eye visuals, tracers, star bursts. I got the whole set!

I was on keppra 250 mgs. I suggest giving it a shot before you try benzos. If you do try benzos do as Jay does. 3 days on 4 days off

I recently tried Tetrazepam and from all Benzos i took it helped me most.

Oxazepam and Etizolam also help, but they dont work as good as Tetrazepam for me.
