I think I fell into weed induced Psychosis. I smoked

I think I fell into weed induced Psychosis. I smoked for the first time so this has never happened before. I was given Ativan to calm my anxiety down because I was so scared during that time. I fell asleep and I woke up feeling fine. However, it’s been 2 days since all of this happened and I’ve been feeling as if I might fall back into that state where I was not intune with reality. Is this possible if I never smoke again?

I have a cousin who was very intelligent and considered himself to be too good to be around most and thought of himself as a master manipulator of most. His sister died of drug overdose, and then his older brother was murdered, and then recently a year ago his mother was murdered. He started useing meth and trying to find who killed her. He was then given 3 voice messages to listen to from his mom before she passed , she was crying because he had turned his back on her. Then it s like his mind snapped. He claimed he s a veteran of the war, that he s served 11 yrs and is convinced she died in the line of duty as well. Also he claims his dead grandfather speaks through him at times. What do u think. My guess was drug induced phycosis. What s yours..

Hello Doctor, My older brother was diagnosed with psychosis today. I know that he s been doing meth and that he started having seizures in November last year. 2 days ago he was running around the streets with delusions of being chased by men in white scrubs. I figured this was either the meth talking or that he was spun meaning he was crashing after a drug binge. I had to call the police due to a fear of him getting run over. The police came with an ambulance and took him away. When he got to the hospital he was acting very aggressive. He was sedated today and talks like normal but still swears that he was being chased by these people who wanted to lock him up in an assylum. The psychiatrist says this psychosis was not induced by the drug but that it was hereditary. Im not a psychiatrist, and i wont pretend to be... But im just very skeptical about this diagnosis... We found out that he started doing meth in November last year. This coincides with the onset of his seizures. Theyre telling me its backwards and that he started using meth to (subconsiously) self-medicate... I know my brother... He likes the street life; drinks too much, smokes weed too much, would huff glue, would do cocaine. Thats his life style. He s never hallucinated until after the meth use. What would make a doctor rule out a psychosis caused by stimulant use? Im concerned because i want him to get the proper treatment. And with that being said, is there a difference in treatment? i hope you could shed some light on this. Sincerely, Louie H.
