The treatments of choice for HPPD seem to be Levetiracetam, Lamotrigine, Tolcapon + Sinemet and Clonazepam. They are no cures, because even if they work, they only do so while to drug is taken. There is no known cure for HPPD.

2)i didnt use mdma/lsd , only cannbis/mijrhuana/kush do you think the brain can refix it self
Spontaneous recoveries were reported. For many disorders the longer they already have been in effect, the less likely they are to go away by themselves. But apart from that it is currently impossible to predict the course of HPPD. Thus it is also not known if it matters which drug induced the disorder.

Just my two cent, i spent a few months researching HPPD, what you describe sounds classic HPPD to me not anxiety.

http://www.dpselfhelp.com/forum/index.php?/topic/64290-keppra-findings-has-cured-hppd-and-dp/?hl=%2Bhppd+%2Bkeppra

I wrote that, which is basically what I found out during my research, it lists pretty much everything TDX has just said. I agree with the cure in the sense mostly people who find relief or even a cure on medication have to keep up the medication, but that's not really the worst thing if it sorts the problem. Keppra is what i've read the most success on.

DP often comes with HPPD but i've read many who cure DP and still have HPPD so they seem to operate separately in some ways.

But yeah you've got the classic symptoms, feel for you, HPPD is scary and I only had minor issues.

I was something like this:

Light sensetive(10/10)

Trailers(8/10)
Static tv / lines in my white walls(1/10)
After image(0/10)
Eye floaters(8/10)
entoptic phenomenons - I don't know what that is
Color pop up in my field sometimes(0/10)
Sensitive to shadows around me(0/10)
Some object move in my sight(6/10) - this was like when i'd open a door and look straight in a line it would wave slightly

Now I am (1 year on)

Light sensetive(3/10)

Trailers(3/10)
Static tv / lines in my white walls(0/10)
After image(0/10)
Eye floaters(4/10)
entoptic phenomenons - I don't know what that is
Color pop up in my field sometimes(0/10)
Sensitive to shadows around me(0/10)
Some object move in my sight(0.1/10) - sometimes with a headache i'll have shaky vision but it use to be constant and is improving all the time, to the point if something is a bit shaky it's rare and unsettling as its not normal for me anymore.

So this alone shows real improvements, apart from moving my laptop in the dark i can see it slightly trail and some mild blue field phenomenon, i'd no longer consider having HPPD. While as a year ago yeah I'd say I mildly had a form of it. So I hope this brings you some peace in the fact time can really change things.

Also the leading expert says 50% of people recover naturally fully, i can't remember what doctor claims this but i can sure dig it out. I'd say give it some time but if you don't see improvements say after 1 year from when it started, i'd look at medications (or before totally up to you) by all accounts Zoloft/Sertaline is not good for HPPD and can make it worse just so you know, as a general doctor will chuck this at you without thinking, you will need an expert who understands what HPPD is, which is actually rare, but my post goes into how to go about this.

OH and btw controlling anxiety and depression massively helps with HPPD, it helps you accept it and not worry about it, some of it is hard and I can't imagine some of your symptoms, but some of it was harder for me because of the anxiety it caused during it.
