Comments from related studies:
From this study (8 months ago):
Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder (HPPD)like symptoms to include:
--specks of light
--snow & rain affect
--trails following objects in motion
--halos or auras
--illusions of motion in a static environment
--distortions in dimension
--heightened awareness of motion.
Occurs in dark or semi-dark rooms but clears in light where minor motion and distortion is noted when staring ahead. A mask descends over my face when staring ahead (maybe inner-ocular-lenses affect (cataract surgery)?). In some cases, get affect that I can feel geometric objects and fish-like or distorted objects. Started when given Lamotrigine & Quetiapine. Doctor has increased dosage of Lamotrigin, stopped Quetiapine and added Risperidone: snow/rain effects have significantly increased at night before falling asleep. Severe snow/rain affect occurs when I wake up early in the morning in semi-dark.
