I’d really like to know coping methods or medications that may help me w my hallucinations or flashbacks? I know breathing techniques and certain grounding techniques but neither help me and tend to amplify the situation unfortunately.

      Whenever I have hallucinations, flashbacks, or I think I'm dreaming I have my own item that only I know the weight and feel of it. Kinda like the movie Inception. It helps me tune back into reality and calms me.

      I was put on Topamax for PTSD flashbacks, and I am on a antipsychotic for hallucinations.

      What do u mean by flashbacks? I have some I think and I can't tell if they actually happened or not. I hope not.

      What helps me is facing them head on. If I see or hear something I have to remember that what I’m seeing or hearing isn’t real and that I have control over it.

      Have you tried asking a code friend of what you're seeing is real? I ask my husband if what I see is real a lot. It helps me differentiate reality from my broken brain
