If your BF continues to experience paranoia and hallucinations while taking Seroquel and Xanax, he needs a medication adjustment. The Seroquel is not working, and he either needs more of it, or he needs another drug entirely. Yes, he can be cured, but he needs to see a psychiatrist immediately for a medication evaluation.

I wish you well. Good luck.

Is it associated with schizophrenia already? he's havign a hard time concentrating, forgetful at times. what can i do to help him be cured?
Expert:  Carol Kryder LMFT replied 8 years ago.
Those symptoms are associated with schizophrenia, as well as paranoid and other psychotic disorders. You cannot cure him. He needs to talk with a psychiatrist and the doctor will find the medications that will work for all his symptoms.

Good luck. I wish you both well.
