Are you taking any other medication?e.g. antipsychotics?. I heard voices problem was i thought they were real, being a schizophrenic. Medication helps alot, voices for the most part go. Something to look forward too.

Lithium does help reduce or eliminate the numbers of voices
that people hear, in most people, it is , like all drugs not effective
for everyone. Time may be needed, if the problem is very bad, as in
constant , it might be prudent call your doctor for an appointment/ckeckup
or ask about other options.
