Mayby Posted July 24, 2012 Report Share Posted July 24, 2012 Hi Guys! I'm writing because I seem to have the same symptoms than you, but I never took hard drugs! However, in May, I took an SSRI (anti-depressant) for 3 days before it made me hallucinate! I immeditately stopped taking it, but 2 weeks later I started to see weird things : 1. Negative afterimages, espacially in the morning. 2. Trails 3. When I close my eyes after looking at the window or inside my fridge, I can still see what I saw with my eyes open. 4. Light sensitivity 5. Starbursts around lamp posts and car headlights (the most frightning). 6. Feeling that my eyes are cameras (derealization?) It's been about a month since everything started and I'm very afraid that this is some sort of HPPD that won't go away. I have to say that I cold turkeyed from a low-dose benzo that I took every 2 days for 1 month and a half. Maybe this is just a matter of time too. I don't know what to do to get better. My anxiety is quite high because of this and I don't want to go back to meds since that's what started it in the first place. Are there any success stories on this site? It seems like everyone here is stuck with this and no one seems to recover. Maybe I'm not searching adequately... Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
