Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Delusions and hallucinations
are signs of a psychotic illness, like Schizophrenia
. Such disorders are caused due to neuro-chemical imbalances in the brain. Other factors like genetic predisposition, stress
, etc. can also be contributory factors.
The most important thing to prevent relapse is to take regular treatment and have regular follow ups with your psychiatrist
. Avoiding stress and staying as functional as possible is also essential. Schizophrenia is a chronic, relapsing mental illness and so, long term medication is required. Please discuss with your doctor regarding further treatment options.
Wish you all the best.
