Phencyclidine Use Disorder

Phencyclidine Use Disorder

Individuals with Phencyclidine Use Disorder often have other substance use disorders. Phencyclidine Use Disorder commonly occurs in conjunction with Antisocial Personality Disorder.

Phencyclidine Intoxication can cause delirium, coma, psychotic symptoms, or a catatonic state.

Substances include phencyclidine (PCP or angel dust) and less potent but similarly acting compounds such as cyclohexamine, dizocilpine and ketamine. These drugs produce dissociative feelings from mind and body in low doses, and at high doses, stupor and coma can occur.
