Undoubtedly certain psychoactive substances can cause permanent syndromes -- HPPD can be caused by quite an array of 'entheogens'.

I'm sure that there are even earlier FDA approved substances that have proven to cause syndromes -- whether all of these and the above is 'brain damage'... in ways semantic, as technically full brain damage is visible tissue destruction, lesions, and other such things that can be demonstrated on sophisticated imaging.

Is the rare iatrogenic orofacial/orobuccal non-tardive psychologically charged tic that I received most likely as exposure to high doses of Seroquel 'brain damage' -- who knows.

It probably wouldn't show on an MRI as if it is a lesion, it would be very small. I mean, I must say that I would be more than curious.

What if my entire unexplained somatoform disorder showed up as a small lesion? Would I undergo intricate and intensely dangerous brain surgery for theoretical freedom, especially if it was further inside the grey matter?

I think my various caregivers would have comments to say, not to mention what would be an impossibly hard decision myself..
But I digress...

That being said, I would agree that as far as such a regulated and well used substance as Lamictal (that it is generic now as well), while possible, is fairly improbable and that the underlying disorder may have changed over time regardless.
