  1. Good questions from Ghormeh Sabzi. I have spoken with Dr. Halpern myself, in addition to doing my own reading on the subject. I have treated a handful of patients with HPPD - there are just not that many patients that seek me out for treatment. Visual and psychiatric symptoms have both been improved. I treat HPPD, as well as help patients learn to deal with it. Part, but not all of the treatment for HPPD, is helping patients learn to deal with it. I do not prescribe benzodiazepines. I detox patients from this class of medication, and see the horrible withdrawal syndromes that they experience.
  2. I guess we will have to agree to disagree. As I said, my treatments are based on information from a physician who treats a lot of HPPD patients, as well as from my own personal experience. The physician is John Halpern, MD at McLean Hospital in Boston. Take care and be well.
  3. My experience has been different. I have had great results with Zoloft, Cymbalta, and Remeron. CBT is helpful for anxiety and coping skills. Acupuncture is helpful for anxiety as well. My treatments with serotonergic based medications and CBT are based on information from a researcher and expert in HPPD. He successfully treats a lot of HPPD patients. Recommending acupuncture is my own personal recommendation.
  4. Greetings - I have a solo addiction medicine practice located in New York City. I treat HPPD without benzodiazepines. I use a combination of serotonin reuptake based medications, referrals for cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), as well as referrals to acupuncture.
