WHAT WOULD YOU PRESCRIBE FOR …….VINCENT VAN GOGH?
Quotes: “I put my heart and my soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process”
Van Gogh suffered from seizures which doctors, believed

to be caused by temporal lobe epilepsy. Van Gogh was born with a brain lesion. It is believed this was aggravated by his prolonged use of absinthe causing his
epileptic condition. He was
thought to have treated his epilepsy with digitalis. This prescription
drug can cause one to see in yellow or see yellow spots. This may have
been one of the reasons why Van Gogh loved this color.

Due to Van Gogh’s extreme enthusiasm and dedication to first religion
and then art coupled with the feverish pace of his art production

many believe that mania was a prominent condition in Van Gogh’s life.
However, these episodes were always followed by exhaustion and
depression and ultimately suicide. Therefore, a diagnosis of bipolar
disorder or manic depression makes sense with the accounts of these
episodes in Van Gogh’s life.

He suffered from a condition known as hypergraphia, causing one to need to write continuously;
this disorder is commonly linked to mania and epilepsy. Some believe
that the massive collection of over 800 letters Van Gogh wrote during
his lifetime could be attributed to this condition.

Vincent shot himself in a wheatfield in Auvers, France but did not die until 2 days later at the age of 37.
