Cannabis badtrip chronical consequences

Posted , 4 users are following.

hi everyone ,

I hope i ll be able to find some hope and advices over here . 

I am not a smoker, but 3 years ago i went for a euro trip and i went to Amsterdam , after some coffe shops for smoking weed, i ended up in the night eating a spacecake . i had , i think an overdose on it , my heart was beating fast, i had like some hallucination like i was peeing my self ( but i wasn t ) etc. next day i woke up with his sensation of being half-awake. i ahve this sensation since then . i thought at first it was like a hangover Cannabis induced. but it never left . couple months later i started to have like dizzyness too, but not a realy dizzyness , like i don t see my environmenet  moving or anything , but i feel like the inside of my head is empty , and it got worst at some times in the day. it s very annoying . i thought it was something different from a cannabis consequences so i did several investiations like cerebral MRI and stuff but nothing special was found . 

i feel like  i have a little derealization tho , feeling like if my eyes was 1 inch back the place  where there supposed to be . i mean like there before this badtrip i was perfectly awake and my environement was perfectly seen, but now i feel like there s a kind of distance between me and the environement . 

it s very incapacitatying . i won t be able to hold this far more . 

i went to see a psychiatrist to get some advice , she told it shall pass by the time . and that maybe i could take some antipsychotics for like 10 days.  but i am afraid tho that those antipsychotics turns me into a psychotic patient tho . 

if anyone experienced the same thing as i did . if you managed to get ur life back like it was , or if u working on it , i ll be glad to read your experience and get advices . 

Thank you

    Hi there - your psychiatrist is absolutely right. A small dose of an anti-psychotic works wonders when you're in this state.

    They're not addictive, either.

    Go for it.                                               

    And let us know how you're doing. You need some support, so stay on the forum, please.                 love Tess x

    That's the whole point. Anti-psychotics are given forever to people with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

    A short course of a low dose is exactly what you need. You are not psychotic. You have derealisation, Yass, and they are very, very different. Give the medicaion a try.

    Darling Yass, you came here asking for help. Very wise of you, now be wise enough to know when you are getting the exact advice that you need.

    Tess is indeed a nurse for many years. Nursing is different in the UK where she is than here in the states. There they do many things a doctor does. And...she is an expert on drugs, their usage and dosage. Not every forum is lucky enough to have a medical professional. Recognize good advice when you hear it, Honey. Hugs
