is Lamotrigine the cure ?

2 posts in this topic

After a lot of research, i came across this medical review : https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3736944/Very interesting and rare hppd study.

Overall, it seems that Lamotrigine has been able to cure long term HPPD like mine is , and for good, or significantly decrease visual disturbances and symptoms.

I'm actually testing nootropics on many levels, but i'm willing to step-up to more epileptic oriented drugs.

Anyone has more  input about Lamotrigine on long lasted HPPD (mine is about 20 years old...) ?

I did about 100mg for a month so I'm not one to say but as for a cure...many, many people here have tried Lamictal up to 200mg or whatever for months and saw no relief in symptoms. Some did I guess, but definitely not a majority or you would see Lamictal as a pinned post.

From my estimates far more people have been "cured" from keppra.

      I was wondering if they are around here people who can give us a testimonial of complete hppd recovery.
      Means no more symptoms at all, complete reverse to normal. 
      If so, how did it happen, was it permanent ? 
      How long did you endure HPPD ? 
      Thanks in advance.I did experience one complete recovery when i was 18, 6 month after i got the first HPPD signs. I remember I had one smart drink loaded with Taurine, and i had that cheering feeling that my friends loved me. Maybe we smoked too that day. I was i the street, and then suddenly, It was gone, the snow and all. I felt again my 2 feet, grounded on earth. It was 100% reversed. 
      Unfortunatly, it came back after a party with a very little shroom dosage. I remember the morning i was looking at the fire in the country side and it was back...
      25 years ago...it's still there, and i'm not paying attention to it. but Damn, i wish i could figure out how to get rid of it still !

      ” I had after images, halos around objects, trailers, bolts of lightning, and of course, VS. I still had a headace after my initial onset and had to go to a doctor to get meds to relieve the headache. After I started taking 400 mgs of CoQ10 for some time, I suddenly noticed that the after images, halos around objects, trailers, bolts of lightning had ALL DISAPPEARED”

      Hi guys,
      Im writing this after a week of research done about hppd on google. I couldn't find much about. But the reason i'm ending up here is because i need some advice.
      So a bit more then a week ago i took ecstasy for the first time. I took 1/4 of a pill and 3 hours later i took 1/4 again. I didn't feel too much about the "high". It feelt good and dance all night. When i walked came out of the club (7am) my vision was bit blurry (probably because of being in a dark club all night). Then I went home and my parents were awake. Someone told me to look into light to hide dilated pupils so i did. 
      Now the next morning i was scared i damaged my brain so i went online and searched the internet. At somepoint i stumbled across hppd. I immediately got scared i had this so i checked if i had any of the symptoms. 
      Since i read about hppd i have the "visual snow" all the time, except for when I'm busy with other things. but for the last week I've been obsessing about the visual snow a lot.
      I see a bit of a glare around lights but im not sure if i had that before. 
      Some lights have a starshape
      I have after images only when i look to bright lights for a few seconds and the after images dont last long.
      That's about all the symptoms i have.  I don't seem to have walls morph into shapes or anything. I also don't have any of the depersonalition or derealization nor do i have depression. 
      Now my real question do I have hppd? 
      I have OCD so i had anxiety before i did the drug and because of OCD i tend to obsess about a lot of issues, health or other. 
      Also i want to mention that I have done cannabis and alcohol before and since i have my symptoms i tried it once and it didn't seem to worsen the symptoms during the "high" of cannabis or alcohol. 
      I might be overthinking this but some advice would be appreciated. 
      Thank you,
      Henkneedshelp

      About two weeks ago i did pure mdma(i dont want any criticism i know its not smart to do it with hppd) 
      Anyways this leads me to my question, as of recently ive noticed my hppd getting worse, the day after i did the molly it got really bad, but then i took my dose of lamotrigine and by the next day my hppd had been back to baseline, that was over two weeks ago.
      The last 3-4 days ive been having a few episodes of depersonalization.
      I should mention that up until last night i had been doing nofap for the last 21 days, because i suffer from PIED and i want it to get better.
      Last night i fapped three times and it ended up making me super paranoid and i couldnt fall asleep for hours.
      Anyways, my question is, can hppd not worsen until weeks after you consumed the drug? Like i said ive been fine up until the last few days, i assume last night fapping 3 times isnt helping my anxiety today but who knows.
      Sorry for going so off topic multiple times, but i think its best you know all the info thats been going on.

      The DSM states about HPPD but my psychologist told me the depersonalisation/derealisation symptoms are not a part of the diagnosis.
      Furthermore, what is the mechanism for feeling emotional flattened out? If this is caused by anxiety, then shouldn't you be able to treat the anxiety, in order to get your emotions back?
