What is the diagnosis for Other Hallucinogen Intoxication?

A diagnosis of “other hallucinogen intoxication” is based on the recent use of a hallucinogen (other than phencyclidine) that causes:

  • Significant problematic behavior or psychological changes (e.g., marked anxiety or depression, delusions/ideas of reference, fear of “losing one’s mind,” paranoid ideation, impaired judgment)
  • Perceptual changes occurring in a state of full wakefulness and alertness (e.g., subjective intensification of perceptions, depersonalization, derealization, illusions, hallucinations, synesthesias
  • Two or more of the following signs developing during, or shortly after, hallucinogen use:
    • Pupillary dilation
    • Rapid heartbeat
    • Sweating
    • Palpitations
    • Blurred vision
    • Tremors
    • Incoordination
