I don't recall that word but there is a very commonly used word for that if I recall correctly. What is it?


It doesn't apply to insanity specifically (although it doesn't exclude it as a result), but a common phrase is ad nauseam:

: to a sickening or excessive degree
// a topic that has been discussed and analyzed ad nauseam

It can apply to both the repetition of an act as well as to the prolongation of a single act. It's an adverb that modifies something in context.
