I am new to this site and have had dp for 7 years now. With about 90% of the posts I read, most of them stem from Pot, Extacy or acid. Mine was a combo of x and pot on thanksgiving eve 1998... When I woke up, bingo! It happened. The funny thing is, When I smoked pot a couple of months before that night I had a very strange feeling when I smoked. It was defenitley a dp moment but passed in the morning. I'v only smoked pot 3 times in my life..I find that on any prescription drug or even cold medicine intencifies it 2 fold. Just started lamisil (fungus med) and after a month now it's starting to kick my but . I was on effexor for 2 years and that was a waist of time. After a night of drinking I have to stay in bed all day because dp is so bad. Is there any help out there or is this forever?????

what does it do? dxm?
And thanks for the advice poonany. It's hard to describe to dr's what I'm actually feeling. The Nueroligist said I was fine but I know i'm screwed up.
Who can diagnose me?

Oh man... DXM. It makes you trip. I used to hang out with these weirdos that would drink bottles of Robitussin to get high. They would take a bunch of Coricidin pills for the same effect. They talked about how great it was.... and one day when there was no weed or alcohol... I was dumb enough to try it. I got really cold.... and curled up in my friends bathtub with a blanket. And then I was sitting on the bed with this girl who oddly enough was watching a porno... and I kept looking at the clock. It would feel like hours went by and I'd look and it would be the same exact minute it was "hours" ago!

DP got real bad. It's a good thing I called my friend when I did cuz I went nuts and on top of that almost died. My friend and his girlfriend took me to the ER. I remember I kept saying where am I... They said my pupils were huge and I was squeezing Jessica's hands so tight she had marks on them from my nails digging in. Then the doctor made them leave and I kept getting out of my bed and they kept putting me back in. I felt like I was on a spaceship. One of the nurses told me I'd better stay in bed or they'd have to strap me down. Then another nurse gave me a cup full of what looked like chocolate milk. I drank some. It wasn't chocolate milk. I asked her what it was and she said charcoal. I thought she was joking, and then I thought man this must be a dream.

The next day the doc said I had PCP in my system. I didn't take any PCP!! He thought I was lying. I was like no I took 16 Coricidin cough and cold pills. I think there's something in Coricidin that's in the same family of PCP. I remember reading that sometime afterward. And then I had to explain it wasn't a suicide attempt... I'm too scared to die, I just wanted to get high.

This wasn't the cause of my DP by the way but if I didn't already have it it sure could have caused it. I think that's why most people get high... cuz of the DP feeling. That's not high to me... when I'm trying to get high I'm trying to get out of this hell.

Sorry I went off on a ramble there.
