Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
I understand your concern regarding your son's psychiatric illness. Hearing non-existant sounds or voices is called "hallucinations", and this is a core symptom of Schizophrenia
. This has to be treated with appropriate doses of anti-psychotic medication
. You must also understand that Schizophrenia is a chronic illness which needs long term, regular treatment.
Your son will need a detailed assessment to determine the extent severity of his symptoms, and to review his past response to medication. So, I would suggest that you advise him to consult a psychiatrist
in person in his area for further treament. You can also keep reminding him and monitoring him to take regular treatment.
Wish you all the best.
