Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for using healthcare magic. I, Dr Abhishek Kapoor, would help you in this query.

I think, she has psychosis and in that case, she should be on antipsychotic drugs. These drugs would help to control the symptoms. As you have mentioned that she has been taking drug for last two months, then carry on with drug if she is getting a little bit improvement. If she is not getting any improvement with that drug, then either she needs higher dose or different antipsychotic. Tell me about the drug and its dosage, so i could give you further advise.
