Brief Answer:
Need some details

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to HCM.
I can understand your concerns.

Can you please provide some more details:
Since when are you hearing these voices?

What is the content/character of these voices? hearing sounds like someone is talking to you or just buzzing, humming sound?

What medications are you taking?

Have you gone for ENT evaluation?

Do you consume alcohol or any other drugs?

Hearing voices can be a symptom of psychosis or a ENT pathology.
Kindly revert back with these details for a better assessment.

Hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks.

Brief Answer:
Olanzapine or risperidone

Detailed Answer:
If ziprasidone is not working for you, I would suggest you to take olanzapine or risperidone (prescription drug), if not tried earlier.

This should help.

Kindly discuss this with your doctor.

Thanks.
