    • You definitely are having neurological disorders. You need to stop the use of any drugs/narcotics of any kind immediately and permanently. It is probably definitely possible that it was eventually brought on by a seizure. There are rare cases of people using drugs, and some other incident bringing on HPPD, even as simple as drinking alcohol, I have seen it here on this forum of one person reporting exactly that. As Jay said there does seem to be some neuro deficit associations between HPPD, epilepsy, and migraines. They are all very strange conditions that are not entirely understood yet. Some things that may help are eating a healthier diet, veges and fruits etc. Absolutely abstaining from illicit substances.
    • I apologize if my words were blunt or contained information you already understand.   I would scour the internet/google scholar (use the advanced search functions!) for any literature you can provide your doctor to support your claim for a slow taper. Ime, doctors are much more receptive to scientific literature than their patients.    this might help. I just scammed a few sections in one part but they mention the Ashton protocol and even just going to a medical doctor instead and explaining what is going on, as this really needs to be treated more as medical issue than a psychiatric one.    https://books.google.com/books?hl=en&lr=&id=uS8DEAAAQBAJ&oi=fnd&pg=PP1&dq=info:qRzoBsk_a3AJ:scholar.google.com/&ots=408ILOe0WV&sig=mJ1RajGDxoeJm0o08Yu7C7q2qMk#v=onepage&q&f=false   my friend also had a shit head of a psychiatrist who tried to do the same thing. I’m sorry a doctor got you into this mess and now a doctor isn’t properly helping you out.   I would call as many doctors and psychiatrists you can until you find one that is receptive and understanding. Even if they won’t see you, or are too far from you to treat you, they may be willing to call YOUR doctor and explain a proper route of treatment. Even email people studying benzodiazepines at universities. Email everyone. Create a template to do so.   If it makes you feel better, my friend is now doing well, has a good well paying job (he didn’t while on benzos), and is frankly more competent.
