Musical Ear Syndrome or Psychosis?

Hi I’m on paliperidone 3mg and when my playlist stops playing I hear musical tones that are not fully rhythmic in my head. Anyone has had this experience?

I hear music, little snippets of notes that repeat over and over. Not songs like you hear on the radio.

I used to be big on classical music, and sometimes I would hallucinate more orchestral music, never knew if I was hearing something original or something I heard before though, which is a darn shame it was pretty good stuff.

Even people without psychosis experience this from time to time. It has to do with how the brain processes sensory input, and can be a sign of tinnitus.
