OKMH1018211 HI my mother has mental illness and hearing voices and refuses to take medication every day. please advise
Welcome to the site.
Well if your mother is not compliant with the medications then there is this option of using an injectable depot preparation of an Anti psychotic medication such as Risperdal consta which is to be given only once in 2 weeks. This injectable drug will take care of her bizarre behavior and hearing of voices aka auditory hallucinations.
I hope this helps.
Wish you all the best.
