Been on two antipsychotics for 6 months

I've been on Zyprexa and Invega for six months. My positive symptoms have still not gone away. I am still paranoid, delusional, and hallucinatory. When will these symptoms dissipate? I have been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia for 2+ years on a consistent basis. How long will it take for my psychotic symptoms to cease?

I'm sick of this paranoia. It is so fricking debilitating. Right now I think my brother is hatefully talking about me. It makes me feel like he is going to plot against me soon. It's ridiculous how much of a hold it has on my life. When will the hell cease?

Sorry to hear about your troubles. What if you find ways to occupy your time and stay so busy that you don't have the time to think about these other things?

Sometimes I will run between 10 and 15 km and by the end of it I'll be at peace with myself with a clear mind and improved mood. Simple ideas are worth trying.

Thanks for the advice. Are you on medication? Do you have Schizophrenia? If so, what helps you to ignore the paranoia? Is it simply keeping busy?

I've been drinking coffee everyday. It helps me to feel calmer and more stimulated at the same time.
