which drugs have the opposite effects of antipsychotics?

Why?: I am not sure why you would want to cause psychosis, but for people who are prone to psychosis many things can cause or increase psychotic symptoms. Cocaine and methamphetamine frequently cause paranoia, hallucinogens such as LSD, PCP, etc cause hallucinations. Even marijuana can cause psychotic sxs for some
