Prescribed medication can help block out or blunt voices. For some people, their medication can get rid of the voices entirely, and for others, medication can take the edge off the voices, or create some valuable space between them and their voices. It’s different for everyone- other people find that medication does not affect their voices at all. Medication can also be prescribed for sleeping or feeling less anxious (for example during a panic attack) – which can be helpful to get some distance from distressing voices.

My medication works up to a point. It doesn’t lessen my voices but it helps control my moods.
