So you suspect that this is likely to be a seizure of brain abnormality of some sort? I can agree that schizophrenia can easily be ruled out. I was on depakote once during a hospitalization. The doctor's intention was to stabilze my mood so that I would not self-injure.
I quickly went off the drug though.

> AN EEG would determine this and anti-convulsant meds would probably take care of it. Schizophrenia usually involves *auditory* hallucinations and some form of delusional thinking. Very brief visual hallucinations followed by an affective reaction does not ressemble psychosis, especially if your thinking is not affected. Only a doctor can rule out psychosis but the symptoms don't match.

Is most everyone certain that this is not a symptom of psychosis? Does my age or gender (25, F) have anything to do with this and why it is occurring now?
