Auditory Hallucinations

"My daughter says she hears imaginary voices. Is this a side effect of her medication?"

by Larry Silver, M.D.

Auditory hallucinations are not a side effect of stimulants. Have your daughter go off medication for a week. If the voices go away, ask your doctor about switching her to another medication. If they persist, your doctor should look for another cause. Possible causes include anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.
