Re: hallucinations

Go to your doctor right away. Ask about Risperdal and other medications that are used to treat schizophrenia. Also, be honest with him/her about past drug abuse - cocaine, LSD, PCP, ecstasy - these all have long term effects on the brain and reality perceptions.
Believe me. I had them too and when I sto0pped doing drugs I was much better off. If you have schizoaffective disorder, your doctor can tell you what medication to take and maybe the halluciations will subside. Good .uck

Re: hallucinations

Hi Kay,

yes I have had halluncinations; although in my mania I didn't go to the doctor then I rationalised it and really believed in poltergiest phenomena! On reflection and speaking with friends and co-workers I was totally off the wall. Recent hallucinations in the last 6 weeks made me go to the hospital. I stopped drinking, upped the medication and now I'm fine again.
