i am now currently taking Abilify 25mg and 40mg citalopram hav been for 5 years now i have been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia my voices haven't bothered me for 4 years but now they have suddenly returned im not sure why. is this happened to anyone else? i was begininig to think that the meds really do stop the voices its all so confusing i suffer from paranoid thoughts and anxiety my experiences did happen even though my pych doc tells me they weren't real i was delusional thinking and hallucinations the voices are bad they try to get me to do things that aren't good i haven't told my psch doc they are back or my family do you think they will just go away again?

Sorry you are having such a bad time Phoenix. I am just writing to say that if it was me, I would always report any change in my symptoms. I'm not sure whether meds can 100 per cent knock out the voices but it would probably be best to keep your MH Team in the loop.

So sorry the bad voices have returned phoenix. Are you under any extra stress or pressure lately? I've noticed that many peoples voices return under stressful conditions.

I have found too, that voices can adapt to medication, like they adjust to the dose and begin to grow in strength. So this would mean trying to minimize medication to a baseline dose rather than strong doses that become ineffective over time, that is just my opinion. I think definitely let your mental health team know as things may get out of control and when you really need the help they won't listen straight away.

In my opinion, the way forward is to find a way to live peacefully with the voices. I have achieved relative peace through effective dialogue with the voices. It is hard work but the benefits are, that the voices can be more supportive and helpful rather than hostile and critical.

Take care, Te

I am also having what I think are intrusive thoughts the other day I was out with my occupational therapist when I had a flashing image in my head that I had seriously hurt her and there was blood everywhere then it was gone and I was left with the thought of why and how I would never do such a thing then my voices started telling me to do it was terrible has this experience happened to anyone else I am to anxious to tell my ot this or my pcdoc what should I do?
