In brief: Antipsychotics

Somone suffering from a mental illness causing hallucinations would often be prescribed antipsychotics.
But, this person should have a thorough evaluation as many medical conditions can also cause hallucinations.

The possible medical conditions need to be worked up while the hallucinations are being ameliorated with antipsychotics.

In brief: Antipsychotics

But psychosis is only a symptom. The cause of the psychosis should be determined so that the cause can be treated.
That usually means a thorough physical and mental evaluation. Start with your family doc.
