How can auditory hallucination and insomnia be treated?

My brother is taking antipsychotic mediacation for schizo-effective disorders. The medicine is not helping him. He hears voices. He has trouble sleeping without medication. Can he substitute Ashwagandha? or can he take the supplement with the medication?

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello,

Ashwagandha may add up to anti-psychotic drugs but alone may not work. He needs to be switched on to another anti-psychotic drug, if does not feel response with the present on.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Soujanya
