Welcome to the forums.

Thought echoes are not something I'm familiar with but I do hear a voice that isn't my own, he's in my mind like my own thoughts but these thoughts are uncontrollable and sound a little different from my own.

He never stops talking so I'm on medication that makes him quieter. Have you been given any medication for yours?

I get this occasionally, but it's mostly voices of a stranger or someone I've met, or heard somewhere in passing. I don't take medication, I do mindful meditation and work with my therapist weekly to help keep me grounded.

How old are you/ how long have you been dealing with it? (If you don't mind my asking)

I've been suffering for thought echo since April 2019, but before that I had communicating voices which caused a form of paranoid schizofrenia. I used to believe everything the voices said, but now I don't believe in them anymore and they became barely understandable and never answer to what I think. I'm on 4mg of Risperdal and 5mg Abilify

I'm on 4mg Risperdal and 10mg Abilify.

I don't listen to my voice either any more, I've not said a word to him for just over three years.

I find that's the best way to go for me, my voice is a bad one.
