Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
I understand that you must be quite concerned by the persisitent auditory hallucinations which your mother is experiencing. Now, auditory hallucinations is a psychotic symptom which is seen in Schizophrenia.
So, the treatment of auditory hallucinations would be with the same medication used for treating Schizophrenia - namely anti-psychotic medication. If she is already on anti-psychotic medication and the auditory hallucinations are persisting, then the dose of medication may need to be increased in order to control the symptoms.
Wish you all the best.
Regards, Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar Consultant Psychiatrist
