Hi all,
My name is Holofreq and I'm a voice hearer.

I'm just curious if any of you were using amphetamines or ADD meds like Adderall or Ritalin before you started hearing voices. I know this
has been a common catalyst to voice hearing for many, myself included.
I think that a study should be done based on these parallels.

Hello Holofreq

Lovely to meet you.

No, just a tanker full of red wine (metaphorically speaking - in moderation, actually) and if that's caused me to hear voices, then it was worth it because I must be forever sanctified!! Only ever had one joint and that was back in the 60's.

Boring aren't I? But I smoked for England for ten years.

All the best, Terri

Holo,
These drugs/chemicals store themselves in body fat. Might
be a good idea to go on a raw veg diet for at least a year to
try and cleanse. Might help to put you back in the cockpit, turn
off the auto-pilot.

I was a meth user for about eight years; the last two I hit it pretty hard. But I was hearing voices before that, and passed off any voices and the occasional visual hallucination during as drug induced. It didn't seem to make the voices more prevalent, but I had visual hallucinations for the first time those last two years. I don't know if that gives you any more info.

Hi,

My old doctor thought I had severe ADHD and had me on 40mg of Ritalin 5 times a day (200mg a day). Seeing as 70mg a day is the max dose my new doctor was real mad when I told him what I was on and took me off the lot because he's says I'm not ADHD - he doesn't know what I am still though. My hallucinations were visual as well as auditory when I was on Ritalin so much worse and they were really crazy things you couldn't ever imagine. I just have auditory now but they are the worst for me - they are really nasty.

Oh and I was only hearing voices before the Ritalin, so it definitely made things much worse.
