Eye rolling and voices

Hi everyone,

I’m new on here and this is my first post. I joined the forum in the hope of finding some answers around this-

I have been taking an antipsychotic medication called Clopixol which has caused a side effect of eye rolling with psychosis. It’s strange to describe, but basically my eyes suddenly start rolling into the back of my head and, while it is happening, I hear voices. I don’t hear voices at any other time. My psychiatrist has reduced and now taken me off of the medication due to this disturbing side effect, but unfortunately it hasn’t gone away.

Has anyone else experienced voice hearing, specifically in conjunction with eye rolling? In medical terms it’s called oculogyric crisis.

Thanks!
T

My voice can make me blink and before I took meds it could control my eye movements.

It went through a phase where it would make me blink rapidly whenever it was talking.

Interesting you should say that as the eye rolling does sometimes start with rapid blinking. Can I ask you what meds you took to make it go away?

I'm on 10mg of Aripiprazole and 4mg of Risperidone. But they just prevent my involuntary eye movements, the blinking is still a problem at times.

Thanks for sharing. And the voices? Has the medication helped with that?

They reduce the volume by a good 90-95% so it's easier to cope with but it waffles on practically every waking moment so that's annoying.
