Auditory hallucinations & delusions began about a month ago with no prior history of mental illness (we've been together 14 years). He was, however, abusing oxycodone, oxycontin, xanax, soma, & ritalin. We took him to the ER 3 wks ago & he was put on risperdal 1mg x1 wk, then 2mg for a couple of days before going back to ER. With no past mental illness history & age ~40... I want to believe that this is all substance-induced but we're going on a month & although they have changed his doses/meds, he is still having the auditory hallucinations/delusions... can this be permanent!!! He has stopped abusing the narcotics/ritalin the first time we took him to the ER by the way. Need help please!!!
