Yes. A diagnosis of “substance/medication-induced psychotic disorder” may be given to a person who experiences delusions and/or hallucinations soon after substance intoxication or withdrawal, or after exposure to a medication. The substance or medication must be capable of producing delusions and/or hallucinations, and the disturbance cannot be better explained by another psychotic disorder. A diagnosis of substance/medication-induced psychotic disorder requires that the drug effects cause significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.
Drugs that may cause delusions or hallucinations and have their own diagnostic coding for this psychotic disorder include alcohol, cannabis, phencyclidine, inhalants, sedatives, hypnotics, anxiolytics, amphetamines, cocaine, another hallucinogen, or other known or unknown substance.
