Hi doctor,

Hi,

Welcome to dr.sitehome.info.

  • The treatment is antipsychotic medicines like Olanzapine, Aripiprazole, etc., followed by insight oriented psychotherapy after remission.
  • But, please ensure that there are no other symptoms like delusions of persecution or control, hearing voices, sleep and appetite changes, etc., other than this delusion. In that case, the prognosis will differ, but the treatment will remain the same.
