Hi Amy,

You might have noticed from one of the posts above "phenytoin and Peyronies disease", that I started taking Dilantin a med prescribed for epilepsy for my depression and anxiety. I learned about this drug from a book written by Jack Dreyfus a successful stock broker who himself benefitted from dilantin for his depression. In this book there are a listing of many studies done on this drug for numerous disorders. One of them is successful remission of flashbacks...visual and auditory hallucinations from LSD. It is as follows...

Thurlow and Given
Canadian Medical Journal circa 1971

Reported succesful treatment with PHT (phenytoin aka Dilantin) in two cases of flashbacks (recurrent visual and auditory hallucinations after LSD).
In one of the cases a patient had been experiencing flashbacks five months after discontinuance of all hallucinogenic drugs. She was given chlorpromazine 25 tid, with moderate diminution in the intensity and frequency and affective component of her flashbacks. Hallucinations continued to occur, but were less terrifying. Chlorpromazine was discontinued and the previous level of flashbacks returned after 24hrs.
PHT (Dilantin) was instituted 100mg tid (three times daily) Within 48hrs. she noted a very marked reduction in all types of flashbacks.
In the other case 100mg. of PHT inravenously terminated a flashback while in progress.

If this is confusing or you have any questions dont hesitate to ask. This must be a terrifying experience for you and we are all pulling for you. I'm sorry I didnt go into much detail but I will later if you are curious.

Hope this helps...Brandon
