Sorry, no etymologies found.
In the addicted life style, we see violent swings from artificial hyperphoria to hypophoria with little calm or happy time in between.
As I use the term, hyperphoria is an artificially elevated, giddy, unrealistic altered state in which the addict may be capable of acting like an antisocial personality, popularly known as a psychopath.
