My depressive states tend to cycle. For the past several years when I am in one of my down modes, I see what I can only describe as little black mice (shadows for lack of a better word) scurrying back and forth. When I turn my head to look at them, it is like the shadow breaks up and is gone. This can be very distracting. The first VA doctor I mentioned it to put me on Risperadone about 7 years ago, but that really didn't help. I didn't get a refill. I am currently prescribed 400 mg of Wellbutrin daily, along with 10mg of Valium and some other medications.
The hallucinations are not like actually seeing a mouse. It is like seeing these dark fuzzy objects about the size of a mouse moving back and forth along my peripheral lines of sight. The VA doctors have told me that these things I see aren't really hallucinations, but they haven't told me what they are. I don't have them all the time and sometimes can go several weeks without seeing them. Other times I see them all throughout the day.
