been on meds for years, they don't do anything for the voices but have helped me with supressed anger.

Even though you can still hear them, do the meds help you cope day to day better? I know how much they help my boys, I live with them and see it, but I'm not sure whether they realize just how much they do help.

What is your view on your voices?

Have you considered that you may be able to learn to live with them instead of seeking to be without them. They are there, I have found that when I gone into battle with mine that I have felt much worse and they are more difficult for me as a result. By working with them in a view of acceptance because they are just part of the way I function, I can live really well with them. Have you looked into dialoguing as a practice and the methods of Rufus May on his website? If the drugs do nothing and your intention was for the voices to do a disappearing act, then maybe it's possible to change your outlook on the voices? D xxxx

They are there since 3-4 years.

I have have sought my own ways of distraction with moderate outcomes.

They follow me and say things like "he's getting out of bed" "he's writting it down".......
