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,
