Question: I'm Hallucinating and I don't know why. Dexedrine mabey?

 origami_fan - Sat Jun 19, 2010 11:24 am

I was on the phone Thursday night around 9'oclock. I was starting at the ceiling and I noticed that some of the white flecks were moving. But I didn't think anything of it. About 15 minutes later after I had ended the phone call things around my apartment started to move. I finally realized I was hallucinating. I also had a stomach ache too. I started to get really paranoid and I started to freak. I was seeing things move all over the place. I started to get really hot. I got so scared I hid underneath a blanket so I wouldn't see the hallucinations anymore. I got my friend to come over because I couldn't be by myself.

So basically I hallucinated and got really hot and had a bad stomach ache. The weird thing is I DON'T DO DRUGS. They only thing I had eaten that day was McDonald's Nuggets fries and some wings, I also had a few glasses of water. The only medication I take is Dexedrine. This story happened 2 days ago and I'm still seeing minor wear near as bad as they were Thursday night and Friday in the afternoon. I was talking to my friends and we were looking some stuff up online. I've been on Dexedrine for 12 years. I am currently 20 and I'm wondering if my medication is starting to affect me differently. I also seem to have hallucinations when ever I am stressed or sad. I've been having a few arguments with a close friend and the hallucinations see to get worse after the arguments. Also I haven't been able to sleep for 3 days I've had about 1 hour of sleep total.
