Administration Role

  1. Hey guys, I personally have mild hppd for 2 and a half month and today I will start my Keppra medication. Brand name Keppra. I am taking 250mg daily and will increase the dosage to 1500mg over the course of the next months. Maybe I will go for 2000mg or 3000mg in the long run. I will write an update whenever I feel my symptoms decreased.
  2. Hey guys. I'm thinking about asking my pysch for keppra. Will I have withdrawals when I decide to quit? How bad are the side effects at first? Also, I have lorazepam. Should I take lorazepam for a while to help with the beginning side effects? I took Lamictal but it didn't help me. Currently, I'm only taking ashwagandha, an adaptogen, and I also drink one mushroom elixir tea in the morning, also adaptogens. I take a lorazepam every one or two weeks when shit hits the fan. Really wish I had klono, but no one will prescribe it to me. I need some relief bad right now. If you have
  3. I’ve been trawling through this forum and seems like you guys are really helpful – not sure who’s active anymore but anyway I have some questions. Sorry it's long, if you’re feeling helpful but not up to reading then skip to the end :-) I’m 20 and developed HPPD from LSD maybe 13/14 months ago. Light tracers, afterimages, visual snow, seeing colours etc. It caused me a bit of anxiety towards the beginning but it must have been very mild because it hardly bothered me at all. I could’ve very easily lived with it. I did MDMA multiple times in the following year, and some coke and keta, none

  5. So a couple months ago I started having HPPD symptoms: visual snow, anxiety, tinnitus, problems with contrast, night vision, visual acuity (sharpness vs cloudy), depth perception kinda, halos, glare(light sensitivity). My symptoms were very distressing at first, but they aren't really that bad(especially compared to many people on here it seems). I've gotten used to a lot of them, and I don't really seem to have the brain fog and DP/DR a lot of people on here have, maybe on occasion but for the most part I'm free of them. Its only been 2.5 months so I'm hoping my sypmtoms will decrease/go away
  6. This is day 2 250 mg 2x a day I also take Effexor symtoms: visual snow frontal head pressure trails brain fog fatigue DR/DP patterns moving walls breathing feel kinda crappy all the time I have not had anxiety attacks or general anxiety for years I've had HPPD for 25 years Day 2- only thing that might be from the med is I feel more impulsive, almost a little agitated.
  7. So given that agomelatine doesn't seem to have done much of anything it's very likely I'll be prescribed Lamictal next Tuesday. When I mentioned levetiracetam the psychiatrist I'm seeing either didn't have much to say about it or didn't want to go there for some reason, but he praised Lamictal and said it'd be the next move in my treatment. Thing is, I know Keppra tends to be the most well-regarded anticonvulsant by members here and seems to have the most success stories, but I'm not sure if that's just because more people have tried it. I'm not well-versed in the pharmacological actions o
  8. Happy new year! Mine's probably gonna suck but things are getting a bit better. I've been on Keppra for roughly 5 weeks now, started at 250 mg a day, and I'm now at 2x 500 mg day and night. I can't describe this in the percentages as this disorder comes in waves for me. For example on some days I still question who I am, where on some days I almost feel completely like myself. Visuals seems to be quite stable though. Improvements: - DP/DR reduced - Brain fog reduced (cognition improved). - Trails slightly reduced - Starbursting slightly reduced - Stopped losing a lot of hair
  9. I took my first dose four nights ago with no noticeable benefit for the first three days. Today, however, I have found myself understanding mathematical concepts in class better than usual and when I stepped out side to look at the stars I noticed a clear reduction in visual snow. I still have not noticed a change in floaters, blue-field entopic phenomenon, tinnitus, ghosting, or starbursts. So I seem to have some improvement in dp/dr and visual snow. I am very happy about this and hope that I will see more benefits as I go along. I have not had any keppra rage which is surprising since I am n
  10. I've been meaning to post this for a while, but here it is, my experience with Keppra. I took Keppra for a little over two months, taking 500mg/day for the first five days and 1000mg/day for the remaining two months. Before beginning Keppra treatment I had all the usual bloodwork done and all looked fine. During the period where I took 1000mg/day I had blood tests done twice and both showed elevated liver figures - I don't remember the details, but my ALAT/ALT was twice the upper boundary of the normal range (indicating liver problems). Since it hadn't decreased at all by the second bloo
  11. need help asap please! i nearly committed suicide the other day and would really appreciate if anyone could help me in finding a doctor that understands hppd in my area. I live in Tacoma, WA, USA, which is about 30 miles south of Seattle, WA. I just want to be better so i can finally have the confidence to meet a girl and to love as well as my lifelong dream to pursue a career as a piano composer. I am 18 years old now and have had it since i was 16 (September 2, 2012)- yes i remember the exact date because since then it has been a living nightmare. Ever since I developed HPPD I have had Const

  13. After reading Rene's success story, I still hold out hope that Keppra might do the same for me. But unfortunately, the psychologists I've seen so far are so set in their ways and ignorant… They refuse to give me any medication. I've just come out of a week of hell. To be taken seriously, I agreed, out of desperation, to go to an inpatients clinic for teenagers who are extremely depressed and cut themselves, also a lot of anorexics there. The oldest of these while I was there was 13. The outpatient clinic told me there was no chance of getting meds if I didn't. Yet again, I was made t

  16. For those of you who are taking keppra here's a link to a coupon that'll save you $30 on your next refill. Im not sure if the coupons different for people outside the US. http://www.keppraxr.com/about/savings_program.aspx If i could i would just attach the pdf but the coupon ID changes for every download. Hence you have to get it directly from there site. Works for both insured and cash paying costumers.
  17. Hey everybody I'm suffering from what i believe to be hppd from an LSD trip 3 months ago. i've also been experimenting with all sorts of drugs in the past. My symptoms are mainly visual snow all day (it get worse at night and in the dark), some after images and that awful feeling of being here but not here and that nothing seems real, like being in a haze, disconnected from everything (DP/DR). At first the doctors thought i had a psychosis and put me on an anti-psychotic (olanzapine) that didn't really help and an SSRI antidepressant (escitalopram) for the depression. After doing some r
  18. Just a quick one to ask if anyone who's experienced success with Keppra had developed HPPD from MDMA use, or had their HPPD significantly exacerbated by MDMA. I've just noted that a few of the unfortunate non-responsive cases have been in people with MDMA-related HPPD and wanted to know if there's any tangible connection there or not.
  19. I mentioned in a pretty heated post to the progress-thread I keep in the main forum the fairly poor, typical psychiatrist appointment I had on Tuesday. After gathering my thoughts I composed a pretty lengthy email and sent it his way, and though it's pretty specific to my situation there's definitely enough in it that I feel like it could well be of use to others who've had lukewarm experiences with specialists. Naturally I don't mean for this to be a stencil for someone to alter as that would be dishonest, just as a general reference. There's probably more I could've added to s
  20. Hello everyone. For the past 3 months I've been trying to get my hands on Keppra. Amazing how I could walk across the street and score some heroïn (not that I ever would), yet getting a medication seems almost impossible. I just came back from my doctor whom I showed the DSM pages that cover HPPD, and the study on the efficacy of Levitiracetam (Keppra) on HPPD. Neither my doctor, nor my psychiatrist, deem themselves competent enough to deal with HPPD, let alone prescribe me Keppra. Subsequently I have an appointment with a "addiction doctor", who "might have more experience in the area". I c
  21. I'm starting on Keppra today. I will report changes in symptoms once in a while. Wish me luck.
