Did I smoke laced weed? The voices only talk when I think

User Profile
I smoked weed everyday for six months straight and then maybe four times a week for two months after. About the end of the last two months, I gradually started hearing voices. Now it\'s been two months later and I still hear voices. I was put on Geodon but I believe I don\'t have Schizophrenia. The voices only talk when I think or go in the "sleep" zone of the brain. They also don\'t really talk; the voices say what I\'m thinking and sometimes will say something back that I did not think. Please help me out. Thank you. P.S.- My vision sees "spirits" flying by when I'm focusing on what's in front of me. Similar to little flashes I guess you could say. Did I smoke laced weed? Or is this simply from the weed because I do know that the voices are not real. Thank you again. And I also stopped using weed about two months ago.

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.

The symptoms of hearing voices are called auditory hallucinations. It is a form of hallucination that involves perceiving sounds without true auditory stimulus. The two most common causes are schizophrenia and mania.

I suggest you to get it evaluated from a psychiatrist. Treatment consists of antipsychotic medicines, cognitive behavior therapy and psychotherapy.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
