Depresonalization/derealization are cosidered both symptoms and a disease entity in their own right. As symptoms, they may be seen in a variey of psychiatric/neuroligical disorders, including epilepsy, depression, panic diorder(many persons who have panic attacks have a feeling of depersonalization/derealization during the attack), schizophrenia, dissocaitive identity diorder(multiple personality), etc. There also exists an entity called Depersonalization Disorder whose sole criteria are depersonalization/derealization. The symptoms can also be elicited while using various substances-i.e. weed, acid-and I have seen a number of people who have "developed" these symptoms after using drugs and continue to have these awful symptoms long after the drugs have cleared. Clonazepam and SSRIs seem to really help.
