Abstract

Reactions 1680, p233 - 2 Dec 2017 Psychosis: case report A 55-year-old man developed psychosis during treatment with mixed amfetamine salts [Adderall; route, dosage and duration of treatment to reaction onset not stated]. The man had an year history of bizarre delusions and visual hallucinations. He had been attacked by gamma rays by airplanes, which infected his blood with radiation. The delusions worsened by the recent life stressors. He had a history of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, for which he was receiving prescribed mixed amfetamine salts, since the last six years. He reported that he took mixed amfetamine salts more than the prescribed dose. He had multiple hospitalisations due to delusions in the past year. An examination revealed that he was obese with anxious mood, with a goal-directed thought-process, poor insight and poor judgement. A diagnosis of mixed amfetamine salts induced psychosis was made. The man’s mixed amfetamine salts treatment was discontinued. He was monitored closely for withdrawal symptoms. Within a week of mixed amfetamine salts discontinuation, his condition improved and he was subsequently discharged. No psychosis was reported in the follow-up visits. Author comment: "Chronic and high-dose consumption of [mixed amfetamine salts] can cause psychosis, presented as delusions, hallucinations, agitation, and anxiety resembling schizophrenia."
