Re: Medicine, alcohol and hallucinations
My grandmother had problems with hallucinations caused by dementia, apparantly linked to parkinsons (something else for ya'll to possibly consider/check into). She never had issues until after having surgery (can't remember what for, but seems it was not major surgery).. .but she was put under. When she woke up, things were just different. She thought she was in hell & the people in the hospital were demons. It was awful. After that, she had these 4 people who were in her house all the time... two men, and two little girls. They would do things like turn the tv on, or hang out in her bathroom. She did not drink or have high blood pressure. I think sometimes dementia happens with age.
On a personal level, if I had those issues, I would probably drink too... might help keep the hallucinations at bay.
Good luck... hope you find some answers.
