Hey guys, just recently I've been in contact with an Australian based psychiatrist who has heard of the condition and is willing to help.

His name is Dr. Bill Mantziouris

 

He is on  Wickham Tce, Brisbane. His phone number is  07 3831-2233.

Hope this helps any Australians going through this.

If there are any lurkers from Sydney here, I can highly recommend trying to get in contact with Professor Ian Hickie at the BMRI Camperdown. He's knowledgeable, highly intelligent, warm, efficient and very understanding. He fully acknowledges the existence of HPPD and its various possible causes, and is open-minded, progressive and very thorough with treatment. He's done his best in treating me, and I have absolute trust and confidence in him. He's a difficult person to get referred to (self-described as a person people wind up seeing "when things get really complex"), but for HPPD I think he's probably the best person to see in Sydney.

You will never know how much this means to me, I have been trying to help my son who has HPPD for years but not many doctors recognise this, hardly any.
I believe that he developed it from using hallucinogenic drugs. He suffers from schizophrenia, high anxiety depression and epilepsy.

He sees bright colours in everything, The trees, houses, cars people, everything. He over questions every single thing in his life, then he goes into a state of confusion because he can’t decide what to do. He sees halos and auras around objects, what’s weird is that his younger sister Who is 21 says the same thing but she has never had drugs in her life she doesn’t even drink.

I couldn’t understand this so I did a bit of research, and according to all his symptoms I can connect  HPPD to my son, he claims that every time they give him antipsychotics,  he gets severe panic attacks, he explains to me that he feels disconnected from the planet and is taken over by intense fear, he starts to see those colours but more intense, he says he feels hi anxiety, fear, lost, disconnection and depression. The panic attack makes him feel suicidal but he endures it but with fear of the next one.

this only happens to him when he is in the psychiatric ward and they give him antipsychotics for the schizophrenia, so because of his great fear of having another panic attack from the medication, he runs, he has escaped more than 30 psychiatric wards around Australia because of the fear of what the antipsychotics will do to him, get another panic attack. He’s on a treatment authority order.

Hallucinogen persisting perception disorder is caused by the over indulgence of psychedelics.

it is a condition of lasting visual distortions, The peripheral vision changes.

They get flashbacks of a bad drug experience mostly with LSD, but my son mixed LSD with marijuana and went on a really bad trip.

So when he is given  an anti-psychotic it wakens his brain and not only does he remember happy experiences he also remembers his darkest experiences and relieves it, which makes him have a panic attack, so you see that my son‘s panic attacks are hallucinogen persisting perception disorder.

So now he needs a professional who can help him because I don’t know how to.

My son is currently in the Capricornia correctional prison Queensland because he smoked ice and he said that he saw a man becoming too friendly with a child, Adam became very angry, approached the man and beat him up badly, he hates paedophiles and child molesters to a high degree, so when he saw this he lost his shit.

I’m  going to try and Call the psychiatrist that you recommended and I hope that she or he can help my son.

This is my Son, myself and his sisters, The Little girl on Adams lap is my grandchild 💕
