So, I abused Coricidin (triple c's) for about three years, along with Robotussin and Delsym on occasion. At first it was with my friends on the weekends for about a year. then i stopped for a while when i was on probation, and started back after six months of only smoking weed. this time i was hooked, taking coricidin by myself at least two or three times a week, and for the last year or so, i did it almost every day. The most i ever took was 28 pills, but usually it was 16 (a whole box). At the time, i didn't realize it, but I was delusional, and pyschologically addicted. Finally, my mom noticed I was psychotic and took me to rehab. My delusions were like everything from thinking i was being controlled by a snake that bit my brain to thinking my friends had planted a mind controlling microchip on my head in the form of a mole, just crazy **** like that and sometimes hearing voices and hallucinating, and A LOT of paranoia. Other drugs i did just A FEW times during this period were LSD, shrooms, DSO, morphine, marijuana, and lortabs, plus a little drinking. Since i've been sober for the last two months, I've realized that I was totally screwed up.
Now WITHOUT ANY DRUGS, I'm having problems with my vision, like seeing specs of light, or my vision will be pixelated, and also lights like head lights, the moon, streetlights, the sun, etc. will be all stretched out, like when you squint really hard, except my eyes are wide open. Other times i get blasts of light, like everything is overwhelmingly bright. It's almost as if my eyes are still dilated. My hearing is still like it was when i was tripping. Music sounds so full and like it's got tons of reverb even when it doesn't, and i hear this constant white noise when i'm trying to listen. It sounds crazy, but it's like i'm stuck in the afterglow of tripping.
Also, sometimes i can't sleep because my brain is racing with crazy *** thoughts, and then other times i feel completely stupid. i'm having memory problems, trouble concentrating, and my muscles feel tight. Off and on, I hear a voice in my head narrating my actions, I think it's from drug induced psychosis, and i'm still having fits of paranoia and delusions. I can't tell if it's getting better of worse. I'm scared I'm going to be tripping permanently.
Has anybody else been through this? If so, how long does it take to feel like you've come down completely, or will it ever even go away? Could it be withdrawals, or can you even have withdrawals from something that's not physically addictive? How long will it take my vision to be normal? Have I done permanent brain damage? Are there any ways to speed up the healing process besides taking prescription drugs? I think I've put enough chemicals in my body already, I'd like to get better naturally if that is possible. If I stay sober, will drug induced psychosis ever go away?
