Customer Question

My husband has been dx with several disorders - PTSD, PPD, - 2 years ago. He has been suicidal, in a hops program, then a partial out pt. program for a year. He keeps telling me it will be fine when the FBI and others stop surveilling and following him. We have not gone on a vaca (used to travel aot) in over 3 years and he rarely goes out. He is so fearful he will lose me. He is so fearful he is going to jail. He does not trust me. I am getting depressed. He sees a psycologist weekly and psuchiatrist monthly. I am at the end of my rope ......ideas? Will this never end?

Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. I am very sorry that your husband has been struggling with these severe psychological symptoms, namely the paranoia and persecutory delusions. Typically these can be successfully treated with the right antipsychotic medication, but in rare cases the patient may be resistant to medication management, meaning that the psychotic symptoms will persist no matter what. May I ask, do you know what medications he is taking and at what dose?
