Suffering from acute paranoia, worried about wife being unfaithful. How to reduce delusions?

Good Morning doctor XXXXXXX, I have suspected for many years that I have a severe case of acute paranoia . I am often am tortured by thoughts of my wife being unfaithful simply because she doesnt pick up the phone when I call sometimes. This behaviour is beginning to effect our relationship in a negative way. How can I reduce the paranoid delusions that I am encountering? Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

I'm sorry to hear that you are going through a difficult time due to your paranoid thoughts. You are most likely suffering from a delusional disorder or a morbid jealousy. It is a good thing that you have a good insight into your problem and have come forward to seek help. Treatment becomes much easier in such situations. So, don't worry, there are good medication as well as counselling techniques which can help you control these paranoid thoughts. I would advise you to consult a psychiatrist for a detailed psychological evaluation and further treatment.

Wish you all the best.
