Does the age at the point of onset matter?


Recommended Posts

So do you think there are different chances of recovery depending on the age at which it starts?

Like when you are 16, your brain is still in some strong development process AFAIK. But I am not sure if this is good or bad.

On the one hand, due to the oncoming brain growth, the HPPD might grow out. On the other hand it seems plausible that it is more probable for the HPPD to manifest itself in the brain structures when you get it during this development stage.

What do you think?

Jay is correct. Science shows the earlier you take hard drugs the more susceptible you are to longterm brain damage and mental health issues. The young brain, especially during teenage years, is constantly changing and highly vulnerable. The older you are the more capable your brain is of handling foreign substances. I think your mid-20s is when the brain begins to finally develop into adulthood. 

Look around this board. Most people who get HPPD are young. Obviously as people grow older they do less drugs, but it's not as if everyone suddenly stops dropping acid when they hit their 30s. Again, the brain is just more resilient and stronger when you're older.
