A 32-year-old member asked:

Is schizophrenia the only time where the individual has hallucinations?

Dr. Thomas Grugle
Psychiatry 37 years experience
Not at all: There are many possible causes of hallucinations - severe mood disorders, substance abuse, and metabolic disorders like thyroid disease to name just a few. Anyone with new onset hallucinations needs to be seen by a competent physician immediately as some conditions are reversible if treated promptly, but potentially fatal if not.
Dr. Elizabeth Finley-Belgrad
Child Psychiatry 34 years experience
No: The most common reason for someone to hallucinate is actually anxiety.
