1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
    PLEASE HELP

Drug induced psychosis

Drug induced psychosis

    Differential diagnosis of psychotic disorder in the
    young routinely includes "? Drug induced psychosis".
    Hitherto this diagnostic category has had no
    consistent definition and the relationship between
    drug use and psychotic symptoms is controversial.
    Drug use is a major complicating factor in psychosis,
    renders the management of psychotic disorders more
    difficult, and adverse reactions to recreational drugs
    may mimic psychosis.
