Hi just wondering if anyone elese has experienced face hallcinations, and what's the word for it iv looked for years for the correct word for it.

Till recently, early this year I was getting other peoples faces, latuda seems to block it mostly...

I found this Prosopometamorphopsia - Wikipedia

But am not sure if that's the correct word for it

I used to very often see strangers whose faces looked very familiar like I've known them in the past. Sometimes I've thought I know who they are but they turn out to have no idea who I am. I also believe that I have something called illusory palinopsia which is when you see after images all over the place for longer than normal. Like if I look at a black picture frame on a white wall, then when I look away, like at a blank wall I see a light after image of the picture frame for up to half a minute. If I'm looking out the window, when I look back into the room I often see an after image of the window for up to two minutes. Sometimes after just looking around a room it gets annoying with all the after images cluttering my vision from all the thinks I've looked at. Other times I don't notice it very much. When I found illusory palinopsia on the internet it said it can be a side effect of taking risperidone, an antipsychotic med that I took for ten years.

Yeah i was looking at palinopsia yesterday
But by face hallcinations I mean having someone elese face hallucinate over your own lasts for a few seconds, I used to get a visual hallcination of the person, sometimes be listening to them with auditory, and have there face for seconds at a time.......

When I was really psychotic before, everyones faces were covered in shadow and I couldn't see or recognise anybody.

Doesn't look like what I had before fits the link you posted. I just remember the thoughts teasing me trying to get me to think I was talking to people I knew and introduce myself.
