In brief: Can be hard to treat
Anti-psychotic medication (neuroleptics) can decrease delusional thinking over time, although delusions are often more treatment-resistant than other signs of psychosis such as hallucinations.
Some clinicians believe certain types of psychotherapy can also decrease delusions, but this is controversial and not accepted by most mental health professionals. Delusions sometimes fade over time, too.
