The medicine does kick ass, some voices give in completely when this happens and some get more aggressive, mine still refuses to stop talking because he knows I have no intention to ever come off them, if he believed I'd come off them if he went silent for so long it might have been another story but that's not the case, he's damned either way.

At the very least the medicine makes him much quieter and slows down the speed of his talking and takes most of the stress out of hearing voices, I believe this is what people will notice the most. But according to my voice it does even more than that.

Is this what you notice the most? A quietening and slowing down of your voices or has yours fallen silent completely?

It's like the voice is closed to being silent completely... but not all the way. But very close.

That's great, I hope one day they fall completely silent for you, if that's something you desire.

Some people like their voices and miss them when they're gone, do you still talk to yours?

I've not said a word to mine for at least three years and 118 days which is how long I've been taking medicine for. He's always trying to get me to talk to him but I won't until he behaves better and by that I mean him shutting up for a bit, he's always talking nonsense and saying inappropriate things.

Thanks , I do want them to completely to fall into the eternal silence...and right now it's very very close.

I'm taking Abilify 15 and risperdone 1 mg and it seems to have knocked down the voices assault... near perfect abilify is the shit.
