Speaking to me in Spanish. Speaking to me at all
That’s interesting is your primary language spanish?
Are you on an AP? That’s the only way I can stop mine. Good luck to you
No. My first language is English. I learned Spanish in high school and college
That’s extremely rare because I heard voices are usually in your primary language. Are you on an antipsychotic?
Yes I’m on clozaril 75 mgs. But I also take Luvox which the dr says increases my clozaril levels.
Has your psychiatrist ever mention a new antipsychotic?
No. I was on zyprexa and geodon. Neither worked. Do you speak Spanish?
No I don’t. 151515
I wish always for my voices to stop, but changing my attitude and the way I percieve them helps me. Try to remain kind to them and yourself if you can
Hi @Lacie3373! I’d like to encourage you to join our forum for Family and Caregivers that can be found at:
While this is a peer support forum for people with schizophrenia and other closely related psychotic disorders, the Family forum is specifically for people like yourself, who have a loved one they are concerned about.
Also, please let your loved one know about this forum as they may find it helpful.
Best of luck,

Do not smoke cannabis/THC (Pro-psychotic), do not use cocaine (Pro-psychotic), do not feed the disease but rather starve the disease and give the SGAs time to work with the Mood Stabilizers and SSRIs (Generally what psychiatrists use for SCH and SAD today). I eliminated things that were causing the voices to interfere in my life and now, they do not bother me. I can work as a doctor, I can exercise, lifting more than I ever have before, and I can focus on my hobbies. You CAN do it. You WILL do it. You must make changes and be HONEST with the psychiatrist and psychologist to make these things happen. Also do not smoke cigarettes, get rid of addictions (Porn, nicotine, cocaine, cannabis) get rid of them ONE AT A TIME. Trust me on this. Good luck to you all!
Thanks for the advice
English is my mother tongue, but I’m passable in French and do have some voices in French when I’m stressed.
