Have a friend who has gone into delusionary states a couple of times, over the past couple of years. Is taking medication with neurological effects. Controls of some sort. Delusions not part of the noted side effects.
Asked if anything had preceded the delusions.
Tension, lots of family tension, he said.
So a medication aimed at addressing one neurological element doesn’t control all of them. And how could one test for tension or fear, beforehand, as an interactive effect…
So, in some respects, all of these mood-altering medications have unpredictable side effects. Brains normally used to dealing with stress in one way, now impeded by chemicals aimed at another, or the same part of the brain. Delusions as one neurological reaction to a chemical control.
And then the primary solution to delusions becomes changes in medication levels. Not necessarily a decrease.
