Oneirophrenia (from the Greek words “ὄνειρος” (oneiros, “dream”) and “φρήν” (phrēn, “mind”)) is a hallucinatory, dream-like state caused by several conditions such as prolonged sleep deprivation, sensory deprivation, or drugs (such as ibogaine).

Diagnosis: Oneirophrenia
US Patients:
World Patients:
Sex Ratio:
Age Onset:
Brain Area: An insulin-agonist (substitute) may have been in the blood during psychosis,because glucose injections take longer to help
Symptoms: an hallucinatory dream-like state caused by sleep-or-sensory deprivation or drugs; leads to confusion and clouding of consciousness
Progression: Half of schizophrenic patients have usually had an oneiorphrinia experience at least once.
Causes: The hallucinations can be like schizophrenia, but the information from the senses is left intact, unlike schizophrenia.
Medications: There is no known, current treatment. According to Wikipedia, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, 2013, may no longer list it.

I was not able to find a clear video or book on this subject.
