almost got out of bed last night to vent my misery on here, but I finally fell asleep. My hallucinations are getting worse. This damn medication is not working. I have only been on it a week, but seems like im just getting worse. The past two nights I have heard big time voices, and I saw a cat jump over my chair and run into my closet. We do not have any animals in or near the house.

I was asking my boyfriend if the tv was too loud and he said he couldn't hear anything. I went in the other room and the tv was off. I just could not believe how much noise and talking I could hear when sitting in silence. And I heard a man calling my name. It sounded as though he was far away in a tunnel. What the hell is going on?????

I mean I have heard of things getting worse before they get better but damn!!! :mad:

Sorry to hear that, the medications tend to have a paradoxical affect and make you psychotic while your going onto them in my experience.

Star, it's almost like I wrote that. I have had similar experiences to what you have mentioned. I just tell myself that voices cannot control me, nor can they hurt me. I understand they are distressing, but there are coping techniques such as listening to music when you hear them. But if you are really worried that your medication is making you worse, talk to your Doctor.
