What is hearing voices?

Voice-hearing is associated with a range of psychiatric diagnoses, including schizophrenia, psychosis, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, dissociative identity disorder, PTSD, anorexia and severe depression. But hearing voices is not a sign that someone has a mental health problem. Some voice-hearers live well with their experiences without ever needing psychiatric help.

I hear voices often and they often mock me and seize on my vulnerabilities. Sometimes I watch TV and believe they are talking about me although I suppose that's some kind of paranoia perhaps. The psychiatrist put me on Chlorpromazine (Largatical) to address this problem but it hasn't made much difference. Am I on the wrong medication to avoid hearing voices?

Thank you.

Due to my mother not being very well in labour, while she was expecting me, I developed mental health problems, and brewing up more prominent, years later right fr om the word, go, from being born. Unfortunately, it was a med drug, that the department gave mum, and that caused such problems for me, and for he r.

I'll hear voices, through in my older years, from t rauma, stress, and or tiredness, also, apart f rom hearing voice condiiton itself, i suffer with what we call in the mental health world, intrusive thoughts, these would be people feeling like, talking about me for no aparrent reason, and I suppose in a similar way, it's a bit like paranoia.


I personally take Aripipazole, or other wise known as Abilify, (I have a feeling that somebody might come along to also agr ee with me), and t his is a marvellous med, and allowing for a certain level of dose, to prevent intrusive reactions, hearing voices, and paranoia to then flare up.


I became unwell, back in 2004, and placed finally on this brillaint med, back in 2007 I personally wouldn't have any other differnt med, to counteract mental health hearing voices, etc.

However, these years, I tend to have the problems of intrusive t houghts and paranoia, much more than hearing voices.
