Get checked!: Before a psychiatric diagnosis is made, a physical reason for your symptoms must be ruled out. See a doc for a physical and appropriate testing to find out why you are hearing voices and seeing things. Do not drink alcohol or use recreational drugs. Avoid herbal medications until you discuss them with your doctor. Good luck!
